CLUP Resource Book: Integrating Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction & Management
The Philippine Climate Change Commission envisions that the Local Climate Change Action Plans (LCCAP) should not represent a separate plan due to the multitude of plans already required of the Local Government Units (LGUs). This will only add to their burden and decrease the effectiveness of the planning process. Rather, the LCCAP as an action plan should represent a lens or framework to be applied or mainstreamed to already mandated plan such as the Comprehensive Land Use Plan (CLUP). Thus, LGUs need an easy-to-use tool to facilitate the application of climate lens in the CLUP that will complement the existing guidelines for CLUP preparation. This Resource Book summarizes the important considerations for climate change adaptation (CCA) and disaster risk reduction and management (DRRM) in each of the 12 steps of the CLUP preparation. It includes the theoretical background, guide questions, data needs and data sources, required analyses, samples from case studies or other available literature, checklists and directories of other appropriate resources.
