Abstract: RODIL, PHILIP ANDREI R. AND SUGATAN, JED MARCUZ E. Adaptation and Mitigation Practices Towards Climate Change of Fisher Folks in Tanza, Cavite. Undergraduate Thesis. Bachelor of Science in Development Management major in Rural Development Management. Cavite State University. Indang, Cavite. June 2019. Adviser: Nelia E. Feranil. This study determined adaptation and mitigation practices of fisher folks in Tanza, Cavite. Specifically, it aimed to describe the socio-economic characteristics of fisher folks in Tanza, Cavite; concepts or understanding of fisher folks to climate change; adaptation and mitigation practices of fisher folks in Tanza, Cavite; and difficulties encountered in adaptation and mitigation to climate change. Data were collected through personal interview with 170 participants using semi-structured questionnaire. Frequency, counts percentage, range, mean, and standard deviation were used to analyze the data. Almost all of the participants (99%) are male; with an average of 59 years old; married (53%); with high school level as highest educational attainment; and many of the participants were local. Most of the participants considered fishing as their major source of income (95%). The longest day of fishing was five days per week (29%); with an average of 4 days. Participants' most estimated income per trip from fishing is P2,974 to P4,085 pesos, and estimated expense per trip from fishing is P3,170 to P4,679 (36%). Fisher folks stated that friends and relatives were the most usual companion in fishing. Fisher folks consider themselves aware on increase in frequency and intensity of heavy rainfall events with the highest mean (4.15) and some increase to tropical cyclone activity (4.11); with the grand mean of 3.49 which were interpreted as aware on the concepts and understand the climate change. Control of fishing and limiting the quantity of fish caught to reduce overfishing (2.54) and using sturdy boat (2.49) were the only adaptation always practiced by the fisher folks: The grand mean of 2.24, indicates that the fisher folks were only sometimes practicing adaptation to climate change. However, saving electricity (2.43) was only always mitigation practiced by the fisher folks while the remaining practices were sometimes practiced with the grand mean of 2.22. Difficulties encountered on adaptation and mitigation practices of participants were all interpreted as sometimes with the grand mean of 2.21, which indicates that sometimes they encountered difficulties in adapting and mitigating climate change.
