Formulation of CLUP, CDP, LCCAP AND LDRRMP of NAGA City Cebu


Local government units (LGUs) are mandated by Section 20 of the Local Government Code to create a Comprehensive Land Use Plan (CLUP) and by Sections 106 and 109 to prepare a Comprehensive Development Plan (CDP). Supplementary to these plans are the Ecological Profile and the Climate and Disaster Risk Assessment (CDRA) – the study of vulnerabilities and risks brought about by natural hazards and climate related stimuli. Both documents serve as inputs and as situational analysis tools for the formulation of the CLUP and the CDP of the LGUs. Moreover, the Climate Change Act of 2009 and the Philippine Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Act of 2010 mandate the mainstreaming of Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) to the plans, programs, and budget of LGUs. This includes the formulation of the CDRA and the Local Climate Change Action Plan (LCCAP). In developing the CDRA, climate-adjusted hazard maps are important to anticipate and address future scenarios brought about by climate change. These hazard maps are probabilistic and incorporate climate change projections.

To comply with its mandates as an LGU, the City of Naga, Cebu partnered with the University of the Philippines Resilience Institute to update its development plans, including CLUP, CDP, and LCCAP. Using climate-adjusted, probabilistic hazard maps generated during the planning process, the city will be able to readily see which areas in their locality are exposed to different hydro-meteorological hazards. This enables the LGU to put into concrete actionable points both their spatial and sectoral development strategies, while taking into consideration the future adverse effects of climate change.
