Imagine the famine in Somalia happening in the Philippines...

Is it really that far fetched - that a famine of that scale could happen in the Philippines? Step back and think on the precarious supply lines for food and drink we are dependent on - imported rice, wheat, and corn, a handful of dams, barely a scratch of a dairy industry...

Just one major drought or an ebb in the world grains market could bring the Philippines to its knees.
