Disaster Risk Reduction And Climate Change Adaptation
Exploring alternatives to current development programming starts with creating avenues for inclusion of women, men, children, persons with disabilities, older persons, and other marginalized sectors of society – towards developing sustainable measures for achieving human flourishing. A2D Project commits to principles of inclusion and social justice as indispensable aspects of sustainable development.
Danajon Communities WATCH
Danajon Communities working for the Advancement of disaster resilience to Combat Human Trafficking
Duration: September 2013 – March 2017
The Danajon Communities WATCH Project aims to integrate human trafficking prevention by enhancing resilience of communities to disasters. By empowering and mobilizing communities and strengthening collaboration with local government units (LGUs) and government agencies, the project becomes a viable vehicle through which the principles of human rights can be integrated in disaster preparedness, risk reduction, and preventing unsafe migration and trafficking in times of disasters. The Danajon Communities WATCH covers selected barangays in the municipalities of Talibon, Getafe, Tubigon, Ubay, Bien Unido, and Inabanga in Bohol; Hilongos, Hindang and Bato in Leyte; Cordova and LapuLapu City in Cebu; and Maasin City in Southern Leyte. These cities and municipalities registered the highest poverty incidence and have been identified to have the highest vulnerability to two or more hazards. The project is implemented in collaboration with PhilDHRRA and Lihok Pilipina, with funding support from Caritas Switzerland.

Strengthening Capacities for Child-Centered Disaster Risk Reduction and Management in Bantayan and Daanbantayan Northern Cebu After Haiyan
Duration: August 2014– January 2016
The S3CDRRM project aimed to mobilize children and youth as risk communicators and active participants in DRR processes in their respective communities. Specifically, it sought to enhance capabilities of children and other community and municipal DRM actors in advancing child-centered disaster risk reduction. The project carried out a number of capacity-building and awareness-raising activities in selected communities in the municipalities of Bantayan and Daanbantayan in Northern Cebu. These two municipalities were among the most heavily affected by Typhoon Haiyan in 2013. Among the highlights of the project involved are supporting community-based disaster risk management through schools, conducting children’s dialogues with community authorities and decision-makers, organizing a children’s DRR summit, and showcasing children’s active participation in participatory community 3-dimensional mapping. The project was implemented in partnership with Young Heroes for Cebu and Bisdak Pride Inc., with funding support from UNICEF.
