Executive Summary

This project will support the assessments of sustainable livelihood activities for the landslide-affected communities in Compostela Valley, Davao. The activities include stakeholder consultations both at the community and policy levels; collection and generation of new data informing people about the livelihood preferences, landslide susceptibility, disaster management and downscaled socio-economic and climatic scenarios; and the application of novel complementary scientific methods to conduct the livelihood vulnerability assessments. The methods, which will be integrated using the stepwise approach, include participatory rural appraisal, backcasting of GIS maps, cluster and conjoint analysis, landslide risk analysis, and agent-based model, practical and scientific requirements for the study and assessment of ongoing adaptation processes and implementation.
