The Philippines ranks first among 193 nations in the world for risk, according to the 2022 World Risk Report. In recent years, floods, landslides, extreme heat, and other natural disasters have killed thousands of people in the Philippines. If we don't build people's capacities and offer opportunities for them, the poverty situation will continually hinder their ability to recover and manage these risks.

CDP puts forward seven ways to localize funding practice:

  1. Simplifying entry requirements
  2. Partnership conversations
  3. Skills sharing among awardees
  4. Shared domestic resources
  5. Bolstering horizontal accountability
  6. Co-creating a vision of success
  7. Trust and equitable partnerships
