The Province of Siquijor is currently experiencing many challenges in coastal resource management and food security. Coral reef damage from typhoons Sendong, Pablo and Queenie in the years 2011, 2012 and 2014, respectively, decimated most of the live hard corals in the eastern side of the island encompassing the municipalities of Maria, Enrique Villanueva and parts of Siquijor, Lazi and Larena Municipalities, with up to 94% damage (Maypa et al. 2014a).
