Short summary
Being within the typhoon belt, the Philippines is vulnerable to typhoons that can cause destructive floods. The Land Utilisation and Capability (LUCI) model is being applied to the Cagayan de Oro watershed to identify areas providing flood mitigation services and potential areas to target for improving flood mitigation. LUCI can complement the existing disaster risk framework by assessing land use plans under scenarios of extreme events and climate change, and the effect on flooding downstream.
