Transcript Challenge in using FORIN
Experiences with FORIN Narratives
• Objective #1: To enhance the FORIN approach for application to the category of gradual hazards represented by changing climate “normals” in a manner that is consistent with the current application of FORIN to discrete extreme events.
• Objective #2: To operationalize the framework in a preliminary multi-sectoral scoping process to develop FORIN narratives for Metro Manila, a coastal city at risk to climate change and extreme weather events.
• Objective #3: To connect the critical factors and feedbacks contributing to climate change and disaster risk and resilience across all the sectors in a preliminary systems model of Metro Manila.
• In response to Objective #1: Framework/guidelines for harmonizing the FORIN approach for CCA as well as DRM.
• In response to Objective #2: Sectoral and integrated preliminary CCA-DRM FORIN narratives for Metro Manila.
• In response to Objective #3: Preliminary multi-sectoral causal diagram as the structure for a systems model of Metro Manila.
Challenge in using FORIN: Focus on discrete hazard events; Focus on DRM rather than CCA
Context: Emphasis on Climate change Adaptation (CCA) – Disaster Risk Management (DRM) Mainstreaming
“We want to produce CCA-DRRM compliant LGUs with enhanced CCA-DRRM mainstreaming capacity” - Local Government Academy Executive Director Marivel Sacendoncillo
DRM and CCA: Points of Convergence and Difference
Climate Change Adaptation:
Disaster Risk Management
to: Gradual changes in climatic parameters Sea level rise Changes in mean temperature Changes in precipitation patterns Extreme weather events with increased frequency and severity
Climate- and weather-related events Geophysical events Ecological events Other events (e.g. technological, terrorism) Hazards that are associated with extreme events Hazards that are associated with changing climate “normals” Gotangco 2012, adapted from Gotangco Castillo 2007; thanks also to IRDR FORIN Faculty Dr. Alan Lavell
Rationale for CCA-DRM FORIN:
• Need for a clear and holistic framework and approach to CCA in the same way as we have the FORIN approach for DRM. • Allow for analysis of common variables that affect risk and resilience to both climate change and disaster impacts. • Identify factors related to disaster risk (climate change) that can influence vulnerabilities to long-term climate changes (rapid onset extreme weather events). • Facilitate the CCA-DRM research and planning process to apply one integrative framework to the investigation and targeting of risk drivers.
What we did to integrate CCA-DRM into FORIN…
• Adapted hypotheses, objectives and templates • New guide questions (generic and sectoral) • Revised conceptual framework • Highlighted transformational aspect, recognizing indicators of both process and outcomes that can be traced • Suggested list of indicators by sector (risk indicators, M&E indicators)
Risk Assessment o H, E, V o Past, Present, & Projected Including indigenous/traditional knowledge
Inter-sectoral, Multi-Stakeholder, & Transdisciplinary Approach
Communication Understanding & Awareness Governance (top-down laws & policies) Community-based strategies (bottom-up actions)
Risk Reduction Enhancing Resilience Building Adaptive Capacity Transformational Change Sustainable Development
• The starting point for incorporating CCA with DRM in the FORIN approach was the recognition that risk can stem from discrete events as well as from gradual or continuous changes. • Conceptually straightforward but operationally challenging: problem of detection and attribution.
• The “fingerprint” of historical gradual changes in climatic normals and their associated evolution of risks is difficult to detect in the midst of intervening factors and data issues.
Challenge in using FORIN: Operationalizing Trans- and Inter-disciplinarity
• Physical • Dr. Gemma Narisma (MO/ADMU-Physics), Dr. Celine Vicente (MO) • Social • Dr. Emma Porio, Emily Roque, John Paul Dalupang and Justin See (ADMU-Socio-Anthro) • Economic • Dr. Ramon Clarete (UP Economics), Randy Tuano (ADMU Economics), Joey Sescon (ADMU-Economics) • Health • Dr. John Wong (ADMU-Health), Dr. Sio Marquez (ADMU-Health)
General Narrative Outline I.
• Framework and Approach to CCA-DRM FORIN in Sector • Interfaces with Other Sectors
Application to Metro Manila
• Contextualization • Evolution of Risk in Metro Manila
Conclusions and Recommendations
• How to encourage inter-/trans- and not just multi disciplinarity? • Need for levelling-off of sectoral approaches and perspectives and reconcile differences in paradigms and terminologies among the different sectors. • Having different perspectives can itself be a strength in building a more holistic picture of the issues at hand. However, more time and deeper involvement among participants are required to evolve a methodology that is truly integrative and collaborative.

**What is IRIACC-CCaR?
• IRIACC-CCaR is a 5-year program involving in-depth studies of coastal megacities in Canada, Thailand, Nigeria and the Philippines.
• CCaR aims to: •
Develop and advance the knowledge base of CCA-DRRM
of coastal megacities. This knowledge base will help us adapt to and cope with the effects of climate change.
Develop strategies and methodologies
for CCA-DRRM •
Enhance practitioner and academic capacity and transfer knowledge
