3.2. Factors

3.2.1. Socio-Cultural Factors

3.2.1.1. Ability to Cope

3.2.2.1. Economic Instability

3.2.2.1.1. Weather conditions such as typhoons and heatwaves decrease work productivity and efficiency.

3.2.2.2. Agricultural Impact

3.2.2.2.1. Unfavorable weather conditions can hinder the productivity of harvests, thus equating to fluctuating food prices.
