Webinar: Incorporation of Disaster Risk Reduction to Philippine Resiliency

By DCCP on 04/19/2021 - 09:00 in online


Catching Up to Climate Change

The Philippines is a country distressed by its susceptibility to earthquakes from its location in the Pacific Ring of Fire, and volcanic eruptions from its 24 active volcanoes nationwide (Sanchez, 2020). Filipinos also face intensified periods of drought and rainfall due to the surrounding bodies of water of the archipelagic country brought about by the El Niño and La Niña phenomena. The Climate Change Commission, whose officials represent the Philippines at the United Nations (UN) Framework Convention on Climate Change’s annual conference of parties (COP), said that the nation is aiming to reduce harmful greenhouse gases by 30 percent by 2040.

To mitigate the effects of naturally occurring calamities, Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) measures such as disaster management, mitigation, and preparedness have been implemented by different local and international organizations. DRR programs by concerned government entities will be able to strengthen infrastructures, ensure access to necessities, and reinforce adaptive capabilities by vulnerable populations across the country (Philippine News Agency, 2020).

Join us at the first series of Catching Up to Climate Change entitled “Catching Up To Climate Change: Incorporation of Disaster Risk Reduction to Philippine Resiliency” on April 19, 2021, from 9:00 am to 11:15 am via Zoom as the speakers would discuss the Philippines’ vulnerability to Climate change, services to protect the Philippines from natural disasters, proper implementation of disaster preparedness programs from the government to the private sectors, how businesses should prepare against natural disasters, climate change resiliency for the Asia-Pacific Region and discussion on underlying disaster risk precautions and dissemination of information.

Webinar: Economic Implications and Response

By DCCP on 04/23/2021 - 14:00 in online


Catching Up To Climate Change

The prolonged rainy season in the Philippines poses an immense threat to the business and economic environment of the country. According to the Association of South-East Asian Nations (n.d.), the Philippines was revealed to be one of the six South-East Asian countries prone to climate change, with recurring typhoons and droughts resulting in economic loss, and shortages in equipment and manpower for industries such as energy consumption, infrastructure, agriculture, and healthcare.

These deficiencies further translate into the difficulty for businesses to fully compensate for production and sales lost and the aversion by foreign investors from the decline in appeal and profitability of the country. Both the private sector and government agencies hold responsibilities in paving the way for the business community to take part in mitigating the drastic effects of the climate crisis.

Join us at the second series of Catching Up to Climate Change entitled Catching Up To Climate Change: Economic Implications and Responseon April 23, 2021, from 2:00 pm to 3:35 pm via Zoom as our speakers will discuss the importance of integrating climate change in strategic business decisions and the present and future collaborative efforts between the Philippine government and the private sector. Ultimately, to discuss the possible effects of climate change on the business industry.
