Resilience and disaster trends in the Philippines: Opportunities for national and local capacity building

Source(s):  Public Library of Science (PLoS)

This paper explores the policy and institutional mechanisms for disaster risk reduction management and research which have been conducted in the Philippines related to disaster preparedness, management and resilience. It draws on direct observations of and conversations with disaster management professionals, in addition to a review of the extant literature on resilience and disaster preparedness.

To further build on the ongoing disaster preparedness and resilience initiatives occurring in the Philippines, three top priorities for future work were identified (p. 6-7):

  • map the network and activities of agencies and actors working on resilience and preparedness;
  • research into community perceptions of disaster risk preparedness and resilience;
  • increased research into the socioecological systems and what metrics can capture this system.
