Climate change adaptation: a critical time for action


This paper addresses the need to strengthen disaster preparedness and mitigation capacities in the Philippines and to build resilient, sustainable, and adaptive infrastructures, ecosystems and livelihoods to face urban hazards. It presents WFP's Disaster Preparedness and Response (DPR) programme, aiming at enhancing resilience by strengthening technical capacity and piloting small-scale, high-impact risk mitigation projects with a component on climate change adaptation. It includes four case studies describing undergoing projects in Butuan City, Cagayan de Oro City, Davao City and Iloilo City.
