Climate Change, Hazards, Impacts, Interventions



Communityís participation in the activities like the preparation and creation of historical timeline. resource and hazard mapping as well as vulnerability assessment matrix (VAM) are effective tools in determining hazards, impacts and interventions of a certain locality. The most common hazards are typhoons, saltwater intrusion, floods and drought. Data were collected through focus group discussions (FGDs) from respondents along coastal areas. Findings revealed that natural calamities had great impact to livelihood, properties and health. The damaged business operations, fishing and agricultural livelihood led to loss of income, likewise the sources of water were also contaminated. Planned interventions include launching of periodic education and awareness program, creation of evacuation centers and relocation sites, rescue centers, installation of deep well water pumps and irrigation systems, solid waste management, drainage and sea walls construction, canal rehabilitation/dredging, tree planting and alternative livelihood programs.
