Community Based Adaptation and Resilience Against Disaster
This page is dedicated to the CBARAD which is in a pilot stage, being implemented in Iloilo City, PHILIPPINES
The City of Iloilo is the regional centre of Western Visayas and located in the southern shores of Panay Island. Iloilo City has suffered flood damages due to its geographical conditions which lie on the plains of the mouth of the rivers. Projects funded by the Japanese government through Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) fundamentally upgraded its resilience against flood by constructing river floodway and broadening the rivers. In addition, Iloilo City supported by JICA drew hazard maps with the participation of the communities to promote risk reduction. However, measurable outputs of the community based adaption and resiliency activities against floods are yet to be achieved in addition to enhancing the roles of the communities. Making the communities ready for natural disasters and related incidents will greatly reduce the vulnerability of the communities and the coast for recovery. As one natural disaster may trigger multiple issues including outbreak of diseases, it is vital for the local communities to not only understand the risks but to know how to act accordingly in order to minimize the potential hazards. The city of Yokohama is capable and ready to support the City of Iloilo enhance Community Based Adaptation and Resilience Against Disasters (CBARAD) utilizing its experience in disaster risk reduction in cooperation with communities for more than 16 years. Project Goal Community Based Adaptation and Resiliency Against Disasters aims to devise effective community-level adaptation and resiliency schemes in the City of Iloilo and increase awareness on the citizens part for self-sustaining the community in an event of a disaster particularly in relation to floods. Area of Coverage CBARAD is being be implemented in the following 5 pilot Barangays in Jaro District, Iloilo City, Philippines:
