Governance and Development Programming
The land use plan must be revisited considering the projected risks were found in the built environment (hotspots).
There are also hotspots in the Agricultural (Osiao and Sto. Nino) and Mangrove areas (Gimaloto). This would have implications on the existing city agri and environment programs.
The city has not considered yet the risks areas and climate change impacts into its physical development planning.
Data and information management needs to be developed (GIS, Knowledge Management)
