The island province of Catanduanes is a kidney-shaped island at the easternmost seaboard of the Philippines. It is the first landmass of the Philippine archipelago to kiss the Pacific Ocean. As part of Bicol Region, Catanduanes is the 12th largest island of the Philippines with a total land area of 151,150 ha.

The province is a lush island of mountains and water. Forest cover is about 46% of the total land area. Surfacing from the mountains are numerous springs, waterfalls, and rivers trailing out into the ocean. The island is lined with more than 20 islets and rocks that give it an interesting shoreline.

The topography of the province is rugged and mountainous. Only about 10% of the land area has slope gradients under 8%.

It is a lone district, consisting of 11 municipalities, which are Bagamanoc, Baras, Bato, Caramoran, Gigmoto, Pandan, Panganiban, San Andres, San Miguel, Viga, and Virac.

Catanduanes has a total land area of 149,216 hectares, of which 47,901 hectares were use in farming. The major crops of the province are abaca, coconut, rice, peanut, and lowland vegetables. The Philippine Fiber Development Authority declared Catanduanes as the highest abaca-producing province in 2010. It has maintained its “abaca country” status as the top abaca fiber-producing province in the Philippines.

In 2015 alone, the island’s 12,789 abaca farmers produced 23,550 metric tons of raw fiber, comprising 40% of the total abaca fiber production nationwide. The local fiber harvest is even higher than the production of Ecuador, the second-biggest abaca producer in the world after the Philippines.

As of 2019, PSA reported that swine has the highest livestock inventory at 73,608 while native chicken has the most number in the poultry industry with 60,700.

Catanduanes is known for its mud crab industry, which is being supported by the BFAR, Department of Science and Technology, Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), and Catanduanes State University.

The provincial government is maintaining the Catanduanes Crab Center (CCC), which serves as a source of crablets for grow-out and fattening by fishpond operators. It carries out a special program for “queen” or “gravid” crabs designed to ensure the sustainability of the industry in the province, which originally owned the “crab capital of the Philippines” title.

PSA revealed that the poverty incidence among families in the province is 14.4% in 2018. From its 33.6% poverty rate in 2015, it has decreased 19.2%.

The annual per capital poverty threshold in the province in 2018 is Php 24,380.00 to meet basic food and non-food needs, such as clothing, housing, transportation, health, and education expenses.

Project Profile

In FY 2018, Catanduanes received a total allocation of Php 7,149,688.87 for the implementation of projects in the province. The municipalities of Bato, Baras, Bagamanoc, Gigmoto, Panganiban, and San Miguel were selected because of their high poverty rate. Most of the farmers in these areas are into rice, vegetables, and livestock. A total of 803 individual farmer beneficiaries received agricultural support from the program.

Meanwhile for FY 2019, the total allocation of the province for its project implementation was Php 19,502,199.00, a significant increase from the previous year’s budget. From this, the program was able to help a total of 1,217 individual beneficiaries and formed 23 farmer groups, which have received agricultural inputs under the rice, high-value crops, and livestock package.
