Theme 2: Local Wisdom, Risk Resilience and Adaptation

This group will visit communities and local government units (LGUs) in Cagayan de Oro City (Misamis Oriental) and Valencia City (Bukidnon) that were affected during recent flood disasters brought about by typhoons that passed through Mindanao. The effort is to understand people’s perceptions of their disaster risks and to know how the LGUs, communities and civil society partners worked from relief and immediate response to recovery and reconstruction of the social and physical infrastructure.
