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