Abstract

Disaster risk reduction concerns many nations along the most disaster-prone areas. Academic sector is inevitable to the threats and impacts of hazards and as such, typhoon is ubiquitous hazard in the tropical areas where Philippines is one. Vulnerability and risk assessment is carried out as an evaluation of mission-critical infrastructures (MCIs) for disaster resiliency. MCIs are said to be the backbone of universities where the functions may serve as administrative, instructional, research and extension purposes, and auxiliary services (e.g. sports) and these operations are essential for any academic institutions. The concept of vulnerability and risk assessment is carried out using the concept from Intergovernmental Panel on Climate to assess the vulnerability and risk of MCI to typhoon hazard. Vulnerability has three determinants namely, Exposure, Sensitivity, and Adaptive Capacity. The three determinants are evaluated by formulating multi-parametric indicators to assess the infrastructures and using indices and scoring. GIS software is incorporated in this study in reflecting the level of vulnerability of the infrastructures where mitigation and policy formulation and strengthening can be adapted. The results in this study reveals that 7 MCIs have a high risk to typhoon hazard and highly vulnerable.
