UPLB Climate and Disaster Risks Studies Center (UPLB-CDRSC)

| Written by Padayon UP


The Center was established to provide data and information on the scientific basis of climate change and disaster risk reduction and management. Specifically, it provides expertise and technical assistance on mainstreaming climate change adaptation and disaster risk-reduction and management (CCA/DRRM) in the curricular programs of the State Universities and Colleges (SUCs), as well as in integrating CCA-DRRM in the local development plans of Local Government Units (LGUs).

It also provides expertise and assistance in conducting trainings and capacity building for farmers/fisherfolks, industries, LGUs, SUCs, and government agencies (GAs), and in strengthening institutional networking and partnerships for climate and disaster action, research collaboration, and exchanges of knowledge and services.

It assists in technology promotion and technology transfer initiatives for CCA, food security and DRRM, and aims to strengthen multi-stakeholder and cross-sectoral participation, consultation and cooperation for CCA, DRRM and development planning.

It also assists in the development of tools for vulnerability/risk and environmental assessments, downscaling models for climate change scenarios, decision-support systems, and policy formulation for CCA/DRRM-integrated development.

The Center was also established to participate in information, education and communication (IEC) and advocacy campaigns for climate change and disaster reduction to increase the awareness and understanding among students, local people, and communities.
