Science-Policy Briefs

Climate and disaster information is crucial in shaping effective adaptation and risk reduction methods. Due to the high volume of loss and damages incurred by the Philippines during climate-related events, it is vital for Filipino policymakers to link climate knowledge and policy to enable science-informed interventions across all sectors and levels of decision-making.

The Science-Policy Briefs are OML Center’s efforts to bridge the gap between climate science and policy. The Center hopes that by developing scientific literacy in policymakers, knowledge on climate and disaster could be effectively translated into action. The information contained in the science-policy briefs covers topics on climate change that are especially relevant to the Philippine landscape.
