5 Risk Assessment: Identifying and Organizing the Most Vulnerable sectors
Targeting the women, children and elderly; hazard-prone communities; discriminated people; informal settlers; mining affected communities; remote small islands

6 Risk Assessment: Addressing Uncertainty in Assessing Risks
Valuing community knowledge through Participatory Capacities and Vulnerability Assessment (PCVA) Dialogues to surface sectoral and gender-based knowledge Engagement with Scientists to identify emerging and imminent hazards

7 Risk Reduction: Building Capacity
Enterprise and employable skills training Para-legal Training Psycho-Social Support DRR & PCVA

8 Risk Assessment: Installing Early Warning Systems
Community-based Monitoring Linking Upland and lowland communities to provide EARLY warning Community-based Communication Systems

9 Risk Reduction: Introducing Redundancy
Repetitive Emergency drills Communication Systems Community-Based Response capacities Response Diversity

10 Risk Reduction: Protecting the Environment
Sandbagging Reforestation Solid Waste management Beach Clean-ups

11 Risk Reduction: Building Safe Settlements
Stabilizing slopes Building safe housing, foot paths, evacuation centers Self-help and Retrofitting Training

12 Risk Reduction: Generating Disaster-Resilient / Climate-Smart Livelihoods
Flood-Resistant Crops/ Diversified Crops Alternative Agricultural practices Seaweed-based Compost

13 Risk Reduction: Diversifying Livelihoods
Diverse Livelihoods Associative Livelihoods using Value Chain Analysis

14 Risk Reduction: Ensuring Food Security
Mobile Gardens Urban container and Community Gardens Sustainable Agriculture/ Sloping Agriculture Land Technology

15 Risk Reduction: Ensuring Access to Safe Water
Community-Based water System Water filtration Rainwater Catchment

16 Risk Reduction: Rekindling the Values of Saving and Stockpiling
Seedbanking and Nursery Food processing and Packaging Microfinancing

17 Governance: Influencing multi-level Governance Systems
Mainstreaming in Barangay Development Plans Linking local and National Policy Lobbying Campaigning Leveraging and Use of Calamity Funds for DRR

18 Disaster Preparedness: Preparing for Disasters
Provision of life saving equipment and training Contingency Planning

19 Responding to Disasters
Emergency Relief based on international standards Pre-positioning Response capacity through CA Rapid Response and Assessment Team (CARRAT)

20 Knowledge Management: Managing Knowledge
Visible Hazard Maps Awareness Building Activities Documentation, production and dissemination of knowledge products Networking/GIS Consortium Building

21 Knowledge Management: Investing on Learning
Work in diverse ecosystems Cross partner visits Cross Partner and Community-based Learning Circles

22 Strategies Advocacy and Information, Education and Communication (IEC)
Mobilize and harness the print and broadcast media to regularly communicate, warn and educate people nationwide about DRRM. Evidence-based advocacy is key for effective information sharing and making people understand DRRM. 2. Competency-based capability building Customized training programs should be developed to ensure that people are trained based on the needed skills in the different DRRM aspects. 3. Contingency Planning More commonly used before as only part of disaster preparedness activities, contingency planning is now a living document which is updated and used in all the different aspects of DRRM

23 4. Education on DRRM and CCA for ALL
education through the integration of DRR concepts in the curriculum (i.e., basic education, NSTP, bachelors’ degree) and for the public sector employees 5. Institutionalization of DRRMCs and LDRRMOs 6. Mainstreaming of DRR in ALL plans In all 4 aspects, we need to ensure that DRRM (and CCA) is mainstreamed in the various programs, plans, projects of either national or local government units, including the private sector groups and other members of the community.

24 7. Research, Technology Development and Knowledge Management
With the changes in the climate and technological advances, we need research to help us innovate, adapt and maximize the use of our resources to help our people reduce and manage the risks to disasters. This also include database development and the documentation, replication and recognition of good practices 8. Monitoring, evaluation and learning Feedback mechanisms are important aspects of gauging performance targets and learning from our experiences on the ground 9. Networking and partnership building between and among stakeholders, media and tiers of overnment
