Climate Smart Disaster Risk Management in the Philippines

Jessica Dator-Bercilla

Agriculture and Development Notes, 2014, vol. 3, No 6, 4 pages

Abstract: Despite the numerous efforts initiated by the government and nongovernmental organizations in addressing climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction management, the Philippines still remains one of the riskiest places in the world. This is because the country lacks the capacity to cope and adapt to natural hazards, particularly to the threats posed by climate change. The Philippines then needs to implement climate-smart disaster risk management plans and initiatives in order to address the future risks posed by climate change.
