Economically challenged women in disaster risk management: Toward a resilient Filipino community

Source(s):  Scientific Research

This study measures and describes the impact of disaster preparedness sessions on the perception of economically challenged women in Philippines. By using a mixed qualitative and quantitative research method the study found that: 1) the majority of women participants are willing to undergo training in disaster preparedness; 2) their awareness in disaster preparedness improved from “basic” to “high” level; 3) their level of action in disaster preparedness is still on the “planning stage” and; 4) the program effectively changed their attitude towards disaster preparedness and mitigation.

The study provided insights on the potential of women in disaster preparedness toward a disaster resilient Filipino community.
