Community Disaster Risk Assesment

Objective:

Generally, the objective of CDRA is to conduct a climate and disaster risk assessment of a local government unit (e.g., municipality/city). This consists of identifying the different hazards and hazard-prone areas in the municipality, conducting climate impact chain analysis, and generating an exposure map of each of the five exposure units— population, natural resources, urban use, critical point facilities, and lifeline utilities). It also involves evaluating the adaptive capacities of the municipality, the formulation of the disaster risk assessment matrix, the assessment of disaster risks by evaluating the likelihood of occurrence and severity of consequence, and the recommendation of appropriate measures for climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction.

Duration / Date:

The CDRA process takes about two to four months, upon the request of concerned municipality or city.

Target / Beneficiaries:

Municipalities, cities, and provinces in the Philippines
