Addressing specific vulnerabilities through climate and disaster risk governance: lessons from the Philippines
This study is aimed
to identify gaps and good practice drawing from
findings and experiences collected in the Philippines. The
work assesses the current functioning of
its normative and institutional systems in terms of
CCA-DRR/M integration as well as its
impacts across different sectors of the population,
including the most vulnerable categories of individuals in at-risk communities.
Research findings and lessons learned provide the basis for the development
of a list of key recommendations. Together
with the results collected in other regions and countries (i.e. Pacific Island Countries, the Commonwealth
of Dominica and Kenya), these will support the development of advocacy tools for the IFRC Disaster Law
Programme, whose main objective is to globally
advocate for new and more effective normative
frameworks that protect the most vulnerable against
major hazards. This will also reflect the Red Cross and
Red Crescent Movement’s ambitions to address the
climate crisis, which expressly include among its activities to “[a]dvise local and national governments in
assessing and, as necessary, strengthening relevant
disaster and climate-related laws and policies”.
