A Geographic Information System (GIS)-Based Climate Change Vulnerability and Adaptation and Risk Assessment for Metro Cebu

Code:    13-131
Date:    01/11/2013 - 01/10/2016
Duration: 2 years, 11 months, 29 days

The project will fill the gap in the availability of scientific studies on how climate change impacts on groundwater resources in Metro Cebu, given reports of depletion and salt water intrusion. 

Applying risk mapping and vulnerability assessment methodologies and using primary data from field survey, data from the local government, and census data on population, the project will produce vulnerability maps and risk assessments regarding the water sector that can contribute in designing strategic adaptation options for the government of Metro Cebu.
