Compendium of climate change vulnerability and impact assessment tools

2013

551.6/B1716

Recognizing the Philippines’ vulnerability to climate change, the Climate Change Commission (CCC), with support from the GIZ, has launched several programs to make the Philippines readily adapted to whatever effects the changing climate will bring to the country. One of the important elements of their programs is the preparation of a compendium of climate change vulnerability and impact assessment tools which can be used by local government units in addressing climate change adaptation (CCA) and disaster risk reduction (DRR) concerns in their respective municipalities. It is envisioned that through this compendium, local governments will be able to integrate CCA and DRR to their respective comprehensive land use plans and physical development plans, among other plans at the local level, and be able to implement such plans with high hopes that climate change impacts and disasters will not bring damaging effects to lives, properties, public infrastructure, economic gains and present and future investments.
