Part of the Eastern Visayas Region (Region VIII) is Northern Samar. One of the three (3) provinces in Samar Island, it has a total land area of 3,498 square kilometers or 349,800 hectares.

Northern Samar, which is considered a second-class province, is composed of 24 municipalities and 569 barangays; its provincial capital is Catarman.

It has a very rugged terrain with restricted plains and valleys. The river valleys are low-lying and often interrupted by hills. These hills reach their highest elevation at 850 meters in Mt. Capotoan in Palapag. The interior of the mainland consists of highly dissected hills and mountain peaks. Low-lying hills are found between the coastal plains of Palapag, the river valley of Gamay and the Catubig Valley.

According to Lantican (2001), citing Kintanar (1984) in The Science and Practice of Crop Production, Northern Samar’s climate is classified as Type II. this means that it has no dry season and with a very pronounced maximum rain period from December to February. There is not a single dry month and minimum monthly rainfall occurs during the period from March to May.

The province is set near the breeding ground of typhoons, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) has recorded 48 typhoons from 1948 to 2009. The typhoon occurs three times every two years.

About 69% (243,084 ha) of the province’s land are agricultural areas. In terms of the agricultural area by land use, coconut ranks first with 120,964.90 hectares used as per Philippine Coconut Authority (PCA) report of FY 2014.

Based on PSA (2018), coconut is the major crop produced by the province with a total volume of production of 269,848 metric tons for a harvested area of 84,250 ha, giving an average yield of 3.2MT per hectare. Following coconut as a major crop are palay, sweet potato and banana.

The municipalities of Laoang and Las Navas have the highest volume of rice production, while San Vicente and Biri have the lowest. This is attributed to the presence of water resources, such as beaches and rivers, in lieu of agricultural lands. Most of the municipalities though have adequate areas for rice production. However, some are not blessed with such land resources.

For the poultry sector, native or improved chicken has the highest production, followed by ducks. The PSA recorded that the province has produced 100,105 heads of chicken and 23,550 heads of duck for the year 2019. For the livestock sector, the province has the highest production of swine. The province had produced a total of 9,163 heads of swine for 2019.

Northern Samar, with a coastline of 13,710.07 km and a total land area of 3,692.93 square kilometers, occupies the northern section of Samar Island in the Eastern Visayas region. The province is bounded on the north by the San Bernardino Strait, on the east by the Pacific Ocean, on the west by the Samar Sea, on the southwest by Samar Province, and on the southeast by Eastern Samar.

It is composed of 20 coastal municipalities with 221 coastal barangays and 22, 231 registered fisherfolk (MFRS). It also has 1,731 registered fishing boats, of which 865 are motorized and 866 are non-motorized (BFAR).

Its major fishing grounds are Samar Sea, San Bernardino Strait, and Pacific Ocean. These fishing grounds serve as breeding places for various species like Spanish mackerel, grouper, tuna, big-eyed scad, herring, anchovies, salmon, round scad and siganids. The province also has other marine resources that include crustaceans and mollusks, i.e. crabs, shrimp, squid, cuttlefish, lobster and octopus.

In the 4th quarter of 2019, the biggest contributor in terms of volume of production is municipal fishing  at 4,573 metric tons, followed by commercial at 728, and last is aquaculture at 196 (PSA, 2019).

Northern Samar has the Regional Brackishwater Aquaculture Production Center at Lavezares. Various hatcheries and processing facilities can also be found in different municipalities.

Northern Samar has been consistently included in the cluster with the highest poverty incidence among families in 2006, 2009, and 2012 along with Eastern Samar, Lanao del Sur, Maguindanao, Masbate, Sarangani and Zamboanga del Norte. It has recorded a 43.5% poverty incidence among families last 2012.  It is the only province in the region that has increased its poverty rate for the year 2015. It went from 43.5% in 2012 to 51.5% by 2015.

However, significant improvement in poverty incidence among families between 2015 & 2018 were noted in Northern Samar. The province recorded its biggest decline in poverty incidence among families from 51.5% in 2015 to 27.4% in 2018. This was highlighted during the NEDA 8 Statement on the 2018 Full-Year Poverty Statistics of Eastern Visayas last January 31, 2020 in Tacloban City.

In terms of the poverty situation in Northern Samar, the municipality of Silvino Lobos has the highest poverty incidence at 78.5% while the municipality of Allen has the lowest at 33.4%.

Based on the 2015 Data for City and Municipal Level Small Area Poverty Estimates of PSA for Northern Samar, the municipality of Silvino Lobos has consistently ranked 1st for the years 2009, 2012 and 2015, respectively. Though it has a decrease in poverty incidence for the year 2015 compared to the previous years, it is still the poorest municipality in the province.

The program was implemented in the province in 2017 with a total number of 10 livelihood projects with a total amount of Php 64,535,000 for 3,083 farmer individuals and 90 farmer associations.
