The UPLB Climate and Disaster Risks Studies Center (UPLB-CDRSC) is the university’s interdisciplinary studies center or program for climate change adaptation and mitigation (CCAM) and disaster risk reduction and management (DRRM). It exists virtually with a mandate to pursue a more holistic and integrative inter-, multi-, and transdisciplinary basic and applied research, development, and extension (RDE) programs, projects, and activities (PPAs). Its core technical working group (TWG) is composed of faculty members and researchers representing the nine Colleges and one School of the university. UPLB-CDRSC is housed in the School of Environmental Science and Management (SESAM). The School also serves as the Center’s secretariat.
