Integrating knowledge and actions in disaster risk reduction: the contribution of participatory mapping


Area, Volume 44, issue 1:

This study provides insight into the way in which large-scale Participatory 3-Dimensional Mapping (P3DM) provides new opportunities for integrating local and scientific knowledge, as well as bottom-up and top-down actions in disaster risk reduction . The article argues that integrating scientific and local knowledge within disaster risk reduction (DRR) using methods that encourage knowledge exchange and two-way dialogue is a difficult yet important task. It focuses primarily on coastal communities of the municipality of Masantol on the island of Luzon, Philippines. The study suggests Participatory 3-Dimensional Mapping (P3DM) as a viable alternative to the shortcomings of the most common forms of participatory mapping for reducing the risk of disasters drawing from fieldwork conducted in a small coastal communities in the region between 2008 and 2009.
