Why is the Philippine prone to hazards like typhoons and floods?
Who are the most vulnerable when floods and typhoons come?
What can we do about it?
Based on the research findings of the Coastal Cities at Risk in the Philippines project, this animated lecture entitled “RISK AND RESILIENCE IN THE CITY” answers these questions in animated form.
Shot in July 2021, AZUL: Ang Sirena ng Sigwa is an original musical written and directed by BJ Crisostomo, produced by Areté and CCARPH. This is an online stage reading created for the virtual theater.
Azul: Ang Sirena ng Sigwa, focuses on the relationships between two individuals and their love for the mermaid Azul, through the years – and how climate change and our vulnerability to floods and typhoons brought about by it greatly impact our lives.
This is a story of a brave young girl who first set sail to free the ocean of plastic. However, her journey has led her to go back to the shores. She met a turtle, a whale, and a giant fish. She also met people, a lot of them. She survived a tsunami and started planting mangroves.
Mari’s story was made possible through the collaboration of many young minds, specifically the hydrology students from Ateneo de Naga University, the CCARPH team, and people who in one way or another, the author was able to relate to. The author is a graduate research intern of CCARPH.

SAGIPDisaster Resilience Technologies
Innovative technology that is practical and mindful of context-specific concerns is needed for disaster resiliency. When resources are meager and the situation is far from ideal, makeshift interventions through innovative technology are lifesaving. The Ateneo Innovation Center’s (AIC) efforts are oriented towards this end. SAGIP walks you through how AIC’s technologies help bridge the gap between basic needs and the constraints brought about by disaster situations.
