Devastation is a way of life in the Philippines. Every year, the country gets hit by at least 20 typhoons. Ultimately, one of those annual typhoons would sweep out the provinces and carry loss, destruction, and heartache.
Devastation is a way of life in the Philippines. Every year, the country gets hit by at least 20 typhoons. Ultimately, one of those annual typhoons would sweep out the provinces and carry loss, destruction, and heartache. Typhoon Odette has hit the small island of Siargao at the southern portion of the Philippines, and has flattened the area when it brought hurricane winds, heavy rain, and death to the villagers.
Faced with this recurring dilemma, a group of stakeholders will have a sit-down with expert panelists, and will try not to provide a solution, but go to notions of identifying the main problems with the island: its design, geography, housing and disaster response, especially for Persons with Disabilities. Using the Harvard Case Study Method, the panelists and the audience will attempt to define the problems that must be answered first, delineate the imposing thesis: what did we do wrong?
