Policy Brief

In the likely context of intensified disaster and climate-induced risk, this policy paper
discusses a strategy framework that highlights the employment dimension of disaster experience and
recommends that the government should provide resilience-building supports as a foundation for reducing, if not
eliminating, the probability and severity of disaster risk.

The framework further proposes strategies for
preventing massive and long-term loss of employment and livelihood in post-disaster settings. The paper focuses
on the hazard of typhoons, particularly the experiences in typhoons Ondoy, Sendong and Pablo.
