Monitoring the Social Impact of Tropical Storm Ondoy and Typhoon Pepeng on Communities in Metro Manila and Northern Luzon

The objectives of the project are the following:

  • to provide an updated assessment of the social and economic conditions of urban and rural poor communities affected by Ondoy and Pepeng and the various trajectories they underwent from disaster to recovery;
  • to inform further reconstruction efforts in both urban and rural areas; and
  • to contribute to the development of an urban renewal strategy, as part of the ongoing effort to develop a holistic approach to the transformation of Metro Manila into a metropolis better protected from and equipped to respond to natural disasters.
