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”.
