  • Est. completion 05 Apr 2027
  • ESS Category Category C

Scaling up current initiatives on disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation in the Philippines.

The Philippines is one of the world’s most vulnerable countries to climate hazards, experiencing an average of 19 tropical cyclones annually. Studies project an increase in the intensity of cyclones, along with an increase in the vulnerability of physical and social infrastructure.

The project will strengthen the Philippines’ ability to adjust to climate impacts, and implement long-term climate risk reduction and adaptation measures. It will build on best practice in multi-hazard early warning systems and link with forecast-based action to maximize impacts on the ground. This includes climate-resilient development planning and investment.
