Abstract: The study identified the likely indicators of the social adaptive capacities of communities of Barangay Patitinan, Sagñay, Camarines Sur, a known landslide prone barangay. Results from a previous survey, focus group discussions, and key informant interviews were used to assess and ascertain these indicators. All likely indicators were present in Barangay Patitinan. Though all indicators identified were present in the communities of Barangay Patitinan, there are still aspects of these indicators that can be improved further. Thus, the study recommends bioengineering approach that not only leads to slope stabilization but also promotes biodiversity, diversification of income opportunities, strengthening community’s engagement in development planning through collaboration between the Barangay Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council and the Barangay’s Environment Committee, development of a participatory comprehensive plan, development of activities that promote cooperation and cohesion, and finally, the conduct of other related researches.
