of the Philippines In this presentation, I will explain the Location; relative
and absolute, Place, H.E.I., Movement, and Region Human-Environment Interaction One of the natural resources are the waters of the Philippines. There is an abundance of marine life and materials that are valuable to the nation's people. Other resources, there are an estimated 21.5 billion metric tons of metal deposited in the land and 19.3 billion metric tons of nonmetal minerals in the ground. It also has fertile, arable lands, diverse flora and fauna, and extensive coastlines. Movement Human Features Doreen Ramas Hello. Absolute; The capital of the Philippines is Manila
It is located 14.5833 degrees longitude and 121.0000 degrees latitude. Climate The climate in the Philippines is perfect for farming and growing crops. The picture on the left is an example, a rice field in Banaue. Climograph In the Philippines, most citizens still live in rural areas. They are subsistence farmers growing food to be able to feed themselves. There are also commercial farmers. Bananas, mangoes, rice, corn, coconut, sugarcanes, pineapples, abaca, and coffee are their cash crops. Agriculture Disasters; Monsoons, hurricanes, and
floods are the main disasters in the
islands of the Philippines. Population; 103,775,002 mill Largest Cities; Manila (1.65 mill), Quezon (2.79 mill), & Davao (1.45 mill) Most of the population
live in Manila,
which is the capital. The most spoken language is Tagalog dialect.
The most practiced religion is Roman Catholic. The political system of the Philippines is an organized framework of a presidential, representative, and democratic republic with the president as the head of state and the head of government within a pluriform multi-party system. Political System Economy The Philippines has a tropical climate and natural fertile volcanic soil which makes it strong in the agriculture sector which employs over one third of the whole population. The economy has nonetheless remained weak which results in looking for employment overseas. Level of Developement The growth of the Philippines over the last 10 years has averaged to about 5 percent. In 2010, the Philippines grew by 7.6 percent, the highest in 30 years. The country has improved many things, but despite the achievements, inclusive growth that benefits the poor has been a continuing challenge in the Philippines. A little over a quarter of the population are below the poverty line. The key challenge has been improving investment climate and creating job opportunities. Investment in human capital and social protection is very critical to improve the livelihoods of the poor. Most people in the Philippines rely on subsistence farming to feed their families. On the other hand, most are struggling to get buy and try to find a way to earn money to provide for their families. The people learn handwork by themselves to not waste money like washing and stitching their clothes by hand. Challenges Semiconductors and electronic products, transport equipment, garments, copper products, petroleum products, coconut oil, and fruits. Main Exports Electronic products, mineral fuels, machinery and transport equipment,
iron and steel, textile fabrics, grains, chemicals, and plastic. Main Imports A push factor of the Philippines would be difficulties of finding a job. The economy is still developing for which poverty is still present. The weather in some parts of the land are extreme floods, monsoons, and hurricanes making a living difficult. A pull factor would be the scenery and resorts of the place. The abundance of home grown food can attract many people into coming to the country. Region The Philippines is located in the southeastern region of Asia, in the South China Sea. The countries in the region are located near the equator which makes them warm and humid all year round.
