Building disaster-resilient communities

Civil society monitoring and advocacy that is vertically integrated across different levels of action is one strategy for seeking government accountability. This case study summary is one of a set of seven from the Philippines. Each discusses a civil society campaign in a different sector, and draws out lessons for vertical integration. This summary looks into the advocacy campaign of the Disaster Risk Reduction Network Philippines, which was directed at the passage, implementation and review of the 2010 Disaster Risk Reduction Management Act. The network provided a unified public education strategy, a venue for shared learning and exchanges between both local and national organisations, and a forum for information dissemination, consultation and consolidation on issues and positions.
