DP 2016-41: Research on Urban Resilience to Natural Disasters of Households, Firms, and Communities in the Philippines

The paper looks into the current socioeconomic research on resilience to natural disasters among urban households, firms, and communities in the Philippines. It reviews the related analytical frameworks, methodologies, and empirical studies already available with the end purpose of identifying research gaps and recommending studies and actions that can be undertaken to address them. The paper explains that the Philippines and Manila, at present, are among the least resilient countries and cities in the world, respectively. It also shows that there are foreign and locally developed analytical frameworks and methodologies on urban resilience that have been used in research. Furthermore, it found that there are already a number of empirical studies covering resilience of households, firms, and communities, particularly to natural disasters, than have been conducted in specific urban areas like Metro Manila and other Philippine cities. From the review, the paper identifies some gaps in the current research on urban resilience and recommends specific researches and related activities that can be undertaken in the future.
