Abstract


This paper examined a rapid appraisal framework for disaster risk reduction and applies the same to key provinces and cities in Mindanao with the end-in-view of recommending disaster risk reduction (DRR) mechanisms to mitigate the impact of both natural and anthropogenic disasters on these locations. Results reveal that The Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) framework of the UNISDR assumes that risk reduction varies inversely as capacity (C). However, it is shown that the capacity-risk reduction relationship is non-linear and complex so that a unit increase in capacity does not annihilate one unit of risk. More capacity building is needed in order to surmount a unit increase in risk.
