This paper explores the disaster risk reduction and management (DRRM) initiatives of the Local Government Units (LGUs) of Tigbauan and Guimbal in Iloilo, Philippines and identifies and analyzes the coping mechanism of the households to recurrent and extreme events. It contends that DRRM is not a stand-alone solution to the problems faced by the communities, rather, it needs to be integrated with other long term development plans of the local government, i.e. coastal resource management (CRM), in order for it to be more effective.
