The need to scale up the capacity of disaster risk reduction (DRR) at the local government level to build urban resilience is a key incentive for this study. With particular reference to the example of Makati City in the Philippines, this book analyses a local DRR approach with reference to the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA), a ten year plan to build the resilience of nations and communities to disasters, applies a micro-level resilience assessment and discusses an effective model for enhancing local DRR capacity in the future.
