Toolkit for Local Government Units

A  toolkit  for  Local  Government  Units,  “Alternative Pathways  to Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction” was  launched  in 2012. The toolkit consists of a 12-step  process  for  local  governments  to  mainstream climate  change  adaptation  and  disaster  risk  reduction  (CCA-DRR). It includes methods of assessing  risk and how  to  access  existing  sources  of  funding  for  local  initiatives.  The  Observatory  provided  input  into  the  scientific approaches  and  frameworks  to CCA-DRR,  and  the nexus  between CCA and DRR.

This was a result of collaboration between Aksyon Klima,  Ateneo School of Government,  Building Disaster-Resilience Communities,  Coastal  Core,  Inc.,  Marinduque  Center  for Environmental Concerns, the Province of Albay, Province of  Iloilo, with the support of Christian Aid  and  the Adaptation Knowledge Platform for Asia.
