Case Study: Albay Province Disaster Risk Management
The Human Development Network published in its 2012/2013 discussion paper series a study of the geography and public planning in the province of Albay.
It describes how vulnerable the province is to various hazards and outlines how the provincial government’s response to disasters have evolved over the years.
Among other things, it explains how the province institutionalized a permanent disaster risk management office which enabled the local government of Albay to address the preparedness aspects of DRRM, particularly the planning and mainstreaming of land use plans into the development plans of the province and the LGUs under it.
