Learning through Philippines Flood Risk Management Approaches
ASEAN delegates attended a 4-day study tour, for cross-learning and exchange and on-site exposure to observe/study Philippines’ good practices towards building greater resilience for its people:
- Ormoc flood control projects, including new bridges and slit dams to reduce the damage of floating trees and landslides; widened rivers and diking systems to provide other protective infrastructure and improve draining of the city’s two major rivers.
- City Local Climate Change Action Plan (LCCAP) 2016-2025: 10-year action plan that outlines the city’s specific program and strategies for adaptation to and mitigation of climate change.
