Kalinga is derived from the Ibanag and Gaddang noun “kalinga” which means “enemy”,”fighter”, or “headtaker.”

It is a loandlocked province in the Philippines situated within the Cordillera. Its capital is Tabuk City and borders Mountain Province to the south, Abra to the west, Isabela to the east, Cagayan to the northeast, and Apayao to the north. Kalinga and Apayao are the result of the 1995 partitioning of the former province of Kalinga-Apayao which was seen to better service the respective needs of the various indigenous peoples in the area.

The province covers a total area of 3,231.5 square kilometers occupying the central section of the CAR region. Its topography is rugged and sloping, with mountain peaks ranging from 1,500 to 2,500 meters above sea level (m.a.s.l.). The province’ western side is characterized by sharp, crested, interlinking peaks of steep slopes, isolate flatlands, plateaus and valleys. The eastern lands are mainly of rolling and gradually sloping foothills.

Kalinga produced a total of 30,986.2 MT of crops during the first semester of 2018. Production increased by 21% or 5,371.2 MT compared with the 25,615.0 MT crop production of the province in same period in 2017.

The top three crops produced by the province were sugarcane with 28,107.0 MT or 90.7% contribution to the total production of the province, followed by banana with 2.9% or 888.5 MT and coffee with 2.6% or 801.2 MT.

Kalinga was the top producer of the region in sugarcane with 97.6% of the total regional sugarcane production.

The province has eight (8) rivers which abounds with freshwater fish species. These are Chico, Tanudan, Biga, Pasil, Tabia, Saltan, Cal-owan, and Mallig. Chico River is the biggest. Total aquaculture area is approximately 70 hectares (BFAR CAR, 2019), tilapia as the major commodity being cultured.

According to the data released by PSA in 2019, Kalinga ranked 3rd among the six provinces in CAR with a contribution of 11.7% or 486.1MT out of the 4,157.6 MT fishery production in the region. Of this production, 154.7 MT came from inland fisheries while 331.4 MT were harvested from 43.2 hectares of aquafarm areas in the province.

Major aquaculture commodities include tilapia, carp and catfish. For inland capture fisheries, catch composition includes tilapia, carps, eel spp., catfish, goby spp. and other freshwater fish species (PSA, 2019).

In the data released by PSA for 2018, the province of Kalinga has decreased its poverty incidence among families from 34.5% in 2015 to 9.3%.

In CAR, Kalinga incurred the biggest reduction on poverty incidence among families with 25.2%; followed by Ifugao and Apayao with 25.1% and 22.1%, respectively.

The poverty threshold of the province in 2018 was estimated at Php 24,193 per capita per annum. This translates to a minimum of Php 10,080 monthly take-home income for a family of five to meet both basic food and non-food needs and be considered not poor in 2018.

Kalinga recorded a percentage change of 13.3 from Php 21,348 per capita per annum in 2015. The food threshold per capita per annum is Php 16,862.
