Proud of my Purok: Reducing floods and land slides in the Agusan Delta, Philippines

This animation shows an integrated disaster risk reduction approach in which care for people and nature goes hand in hand. The Red Cross, CARE Netherlands and Wetlands International have joined forces to work together on disaster prevention and preparedness in the Agusan Delta in the South of the Philippines. To reduce the chance and impact of disasters, we do not only address the problems in the village, but also assess land and water management and use in the entire river landscape and implement solutions such as better management and restoration of ecosystems.
