Scoping of Legislations on Climate Change and Natural Disasters vis-à-vis Tenure

Author(s) : ANGOC Type of Publication : Paper Publish Date : 2017 Publisher : ANGOC

This paper examines the linkages between climate change and natural disasters, with land tenure, as reflected in major Philippine legislations and international instruments on the mentioned subject matters. It concludes that Philippine laws on climate change and natural disasters have merely abstract linkages to tenure rights, while the VGGT is one of the few international instruments which address these linkages. This review also peers into proposed legislations in the country that could address the identified gaps.

Scoping of Legislations on Climate and Natural Disasters vis-à-vis Tenure was prepared by Atty. Antonio GM La Viña and Atty. Joyce Melcar Tan for the project “Mainstreaming Voluntary Guidelines on Governance of Tenure,” implemented by ANGOC and supported by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations.
