Towards mainstreaming disaster risk reduction into the planning process of road construction

Source(s):  Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC)
National Disaster Risk Reduction & Management Council (NDRRMC)

This case study highlights the experience of undertaking a priority implementation partnership (PIP) on incorporating disaster risk impact assessments into the construction of new roads in the Philippines. It assesses the existing procedure of road planning with respect to hazards such as floods, typhoons, earthquakes and landslides, and identifying the windows of opportunity to introduce disaster risk reduction into the procedure. It then gives some recommendations on bringing change in the entire system, from the road projects development, design and construction to their maintenance.

The project was implemented by the National Disaster Coordinating Council (NDCC) and the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) with technical support from the Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC), and financial support from UN International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UNISDR) through Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA).
