ALBAY STRATEGY

ALBAY MABUHAY- is our central economic strategy. These are strategic initiatives to grow the economy including Daraga International Airport and Eco-Cultural Tourism.

Our provincial goal is redefined as “climate-proof, disaster proof development.

Development is operationally defined by adopting UN Millennium Development Goals and improvement in Human Development Index.

Action on Climate Change and Disaster Risk Reduction (CRR/DRR) are embedded into the central economic strategy; not as an afterthought or as contingency.

Climate Change is expected to exacerbate current gender inequalities:

Women tend to depend more on the natural environment for their livelihoods than men do; and
