Publication Overview/Description

Filipinos are always the victims of earthquakes, typhoons and floods. But before disaster hits again, writes Gabrielle Iglesias, an Information and Networking Coordinator of Asian Disaster Preparedness Center in Bangkok, Thailand and Lowie Rosales, a UN-HABITAT human settlement officer in Fukuoka Japan, new efforts have to be made at city level to reduce the dangers of such calamities.

The article is part of a pair of debate pieces for Habitat Debate.
