PHILIPPINE DISASTER REPORT
The Philippine Disaster Report is a concise presentation of information on disasters that occurred in the Philippines in a given year. Through graphs, tables, and charts, it provides an overview of the type of disasters that occurred, the frequency of occurrence, as well as the effects of these disasters on communities. A review of the major disasters that occurred in the Philippine islands within the past decade is also presented.
A substantial portion of the data in this report were gathered through CDRC’s disaster monitoring system, which relies on reports from the Citizens’ Disaster Response Network (CDRN), a network of 17 regional centers all over the country. Overview and supporting data were taken from the Disaster Response Operations Monitoring and Information Center of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DROMIC-DSWD), the National Disaster Coordinating Council of the Office of the Civil Defense (NDCC-OCD), and articles in major newspapers. CDRC verified the data in this report through various sources to ensure accuracy. The triangulation method of comparing and contrasting credible sources of data was used.

MICRODIS is a project with the overall goal to strengthen preparedness, mitigation and prevention strategies in order to reduce the health, social and economic impacts of extreme events on communities. To achieve this, our consortium will undertake research on and in disaster-affected communities to assess the health, economic and social impacts at the micro-level.
Main Project Objectives:
- to strengthen the scientific and empirical foundation on the relationship between extreme events and their health, social and economic impacts
- to develop and integrate knowledge, concepts, methods, tools and databases towards a common global approach
- to improve human resources and coping capacity in Asia and Europe though training and knowledge sharing
CDRC is one of the consortium partners in the MICRODIS project which is being funded by the European Community’s Sixth Framework Programme.
