The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Working Group I contribution to the Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) warned that extreme weather events will intensify due to climate change, thus stating: “Globally, it is likely that the area encompassed by monsoon systems will increase over the 21st century.” It is in this likely context of intensified disaster and climate-induced risk that the author wrote this paper to present a strategy framework that will highlight the employment dimension of disaster experience and recommend strategies for preventing massive and long-term loss of employment and livelihood in post-disaster settings.


In view of the Secretary of Labor and Employment’s directive for all DOLE Offices to implement a productivity program, this Institute for Labor Studies Productivity Roadmap is presented and launched to improve productivity in the Institute.
