“Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction in Metro Manila:
Social Inclusion Perspectives from Vulnerable, Marginal

By Emma Porio, PhD

This presentation builds on her previous research/publications on the
social vulnerability of coastal cities to climate risks and flood-related
disasters, especially those living in marginal, riverine communities of
Metro Manila’s three flood basins (cf., Porio, 2011; 2014; 2015). This is
also the basis of her forthcoming comparative research on social inclusion,
governance and climate resilience initiatives in post-Sandy communities in
New York City, under the auspices of a Fulbright Advance Research Grant.

The paper is a preliminary version of her talk in a UN Side Event, Circular
Science Seminar Series organized by the Brussels-based Intelligence in
Science (ISC) and the City University of New York, during the Sustainable
Development Goals (SDS) meetings/adoption of the UN General Assembly (Sept.
25-27, 2015). This seminar series, “Sustainable Access to Food and Water in
Tackling Climate Change” is designed to support the post-SDGs
implementation/assessment for the next decade. The expected outcome of this
seminar series is a research proposal on sustainable production and
consumption regimes within the framework of climate sciences.
