Spatiotemporal Assessment of Disaster-risk Potential

  1. 1. A 30-year Qualitative Multi-hazard Assessment to Determine at-Risk Coastal Areas in the Philippines Pedcris M.

Hazards and Disasters in the Philippines Ranked as No.1 disaster-stricken country in the world in 2009 by the Center for Research and Epidemiology of Disasters (CRED) A total of 191 disasters, killed 903 persons, and affected more than 2.8M families (Citizen’s Disaster and Response Center) Source: CDRC Source: CDRC
  5. 5. In the Philippines, >80% are coastal provinces that benefit from coastal resources  60% of 87M population is in the coastal areas (in 2005)  Provides 43% of per capita protein needs  Employs 1M people in the coastal rural areas Very High High Moderate Low Very Low

  9. 9. Hazard Events at Provincial Scale Provincial Hazard Event Score (H) : • Meteorological hazards affects most • Climatological are prominent in the north while, Hydrological are most common in the south • Geophysical and Biological are sparsely distributed across the country
  10. 10. Probability Estimation Probability (P) is the likelihood of events occurring within a given period of time • Meteorological in most probable hazard in north • Climatological in north and south while, Hydrological only in the south • Biological occur in contiguous urbanized areas (i.e. GMA) • Geophysical is the least probable among hazards
  11. 11. Impact Estimation Impact is consequence of the events in the context of affected human population • Areas in the north have high cost from Meteorological, Climatological and Hydrological hazards • Areas that are impacted by Geophysical are generally high Reason? Source: Yumul et al. 2011
  12. 12. Disaster Risk Potential at Provincial Scale Provincial Risk Potential Score (RP) : Unit of Risk = per Capita Cost of Hazard event for 30 year period • Areas in the north are at high risk from Meteorological and Climatological (though some areas in south are also at-risk from this hazard) • Areas in the south are at high risk from Hydrological • There is less risk from Geophysical because of low probability of occurrence

  19. 19. Summary and Next Steps  Cost per capita could serve as indicator for individual response burden for lack of government resources for disasters  Aurora is the most at-risk coastal province in the Philippines based on a multi-hazard risk assessment based on probability and impact of natural hazard events  Hazards are characterized based on individual scores of five key hazard components taken from a 30-year information from International Disaster Database (EMDAT of the CRED/OFDA/ UCL)  Validation of results through a case study • Amplification of risks from multiple hazards (e.g. disaster chains; STORMS- LANDSLIDE- FLOODING - EPIDEMICS) • Measure impacts in terms of implications on cost (i.e. recovery, loss capital and economy)  Devise risk communication strategies to achieve concrete risk mitigation plans • Importance of integration of risk in local planning cycle
  20. 20. “The view that disasters are temporary disruptions to be managed only by humanitarian response, or that their impacts will be reduced by technical interventions has been replaced by the recognition that they are intimately linked with sustainable development activities in the social, economic and environmental fields. So-called “natural disasters” are increasingly regarded as one of the many risks that people face.” UNISDR 2004 Thank you very much!
