The Philippines is one of the countries most affected by natural disasters in the world. Tropical storms, typhoons, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, floods and droughts are the main threats to the country. Around eight to nine typhoons hit the country every year.

The country is also characterized by large regional income disparities. Around a quarter of the population lives below the national poverty line, especially in rural areas. The Eastern Visayas region is one of the poorest areas of the country. In addition, large parts of the population have no access to adequate sanitation (around 20%) or clean water (around 10%). The management and disposal of waste is also one of the most challenging environmental problems in the Philippines.
