Training Event 8:

Risk-informed Planning and Decision-Making for LGUs using the Provincial Climate Risk Diagnostic Tool and Enhanced CDRA

Date: October 06, 2023
Time: 01:00 pm – 04:00 pm
Meeting Room: 7

Training Provider:

DENR Climate Change Service

Description of the training:

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), in partnership with the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat), is currently implementing the Provincial Climate Risk Diagnostics (PCRD) Project, under the Philippine Government’s Risk Resilient Program (RRP).

The PCRD tool is viewed to be a crucial instrument to support provincial LGUs in climate action planning and in building sustainable and resilient communities. Specifically, the tool’s application aims to support planning and decision-making at the provincial level, with the ability to support LGU-level and cross-province planning, and climate risk and resilience tracking at the national level. The PCRD is also aligned with the Climate and Disaster Risk Assessment (CDRA), developed by DHSUD, that is likewise being enhanced. Both tools support the national roll-out of the National Climate Risk Management Framework (NCRMF), National Climate Change Action Plan (NCCAP) and other risk assessment initiatives of the government.

In line with the above and following the thrust of DENR and UN-Habitat towards capacity development and knowledge transfer, a training session on local climate risk diagnostics (PCRD-CDRA) will be conducted on October 6, 2023 (Day 2) of the PhUF. The primary goal of the training is to introduce the importance of using climate science and risk-based information to support planning and decision-making using the PCRD and enhanced CDRA methodology and tools. It also aims to deepen participants’ appreciation of the tools’ use in local planning, decision-making, and investment programing towards climate resilience.

Objectives

The activity aims to:

  1. Equip participants with basic knowledge of the PCRD-CDRA methodology and tool and its application for risk-informed decision making and planning to build resilience and achieve sustainable development.
  2. Simulate the analytics process through interactive group exercises using actual case information from provinces and cities.
  3. Provide insights on the tool’s institutionalization and integration into local planning, budgeting, and investment processes.
  4. Provide a platform for discussion on the opportunities and challenges in the use of the tool for local resilience-building.

Expected Outcomes/Outputs

  1. Skills upgrade of local community partners and stakeholders in the use of PCRD-CDRA Tool

  2. Enhanced participants’ skills in presenting information effectively, responding to participant questions, and leading activities that reinforce learning.
