IMPLEMENTING CDRA
Climate and Disaster Risk Assessment Coaching and Mentoring (C/M) Module

The Climate and Disaster Risk Assessment (CDRA) process has two parts: climate change vulnerability assessment (CCVA) and disaster risk assessment (DRA). Both parts analyze the capacities and vulnerabilities of elements that are exposed to various hazards, which may negatively behave due to changes in climatic drivers such as temperature and precipitation.

What is CDRA?

The Climate and Disaster Risk Assessment (CDRA) process has two parts: climate change vulnerability assessment (CCVA) and disaster risk assessment (DRA). Both parts analyze the capacities and vulnerabilities of elements that are exposed to various hazards, which may negatively behave due to changes in climatic drivers such as temperature and precipitation.

What is CDRA Coaching and Mentoring (C/M)?

CDRA Coaching and Mentoring (C/M) is a module designed to encourage and enable the participation of many stakeholders in the overall CDRA process. Through C/M, stakeholders gain an understanding of the concept of risk and take part in the identification and analysis of the risk information of their locality through a series of dialogs, workshops, and guided activities. Local universities are a key partner in the implementation of the C/M module.

How will CDRA C/M benefit the Local Government Units?

The purpose of doing C/M is to broaden stakeholder participation and to increase the capacity of local government units for conducting risk assessments. Through the CDRA, the goal of the C/M module is to inform the local plans and the decision-making process of local government units so as to promote the integration and implementation of appropriate adaptation and disaster risk reduction (CCA-DRR) strategies.

Manila Observatory’s Resilience Collaboratory

The Resilience Collaboratory runs activities and programs that aim to strengthen the resilience capacities of communities that are exposed to frequent hazards, to address local vulnerabilities, and to support efforts to adapt to disaster risks and climate impacts. The Resilience Collaboratory facilitates collaboration among the core laboratories of the Manila Observatory with a shared goal of delivering useful and usable climate and disaster risk information to the most vulnerable, and initiates transdisciplinary partnerships with various institutions outside academia especially civil society organizations, and the public and private sectors.
