Project Tambon: A Disaster Prevention & Mitigation Project for Fisherfolk
Pamalakaya/Panay Center for Disaster Response (PCDR)
Barotac Viejo, Iloilo
This project aims to address the following:
● Loss of livelihood of the small-scale fisherfolks due to destruction of traditional
fishing gears caused by a typhoon, a squall, or the southwest monsoon;
● Fisherfolks’ indebtedness as the cost to rebuild and restore the traditional fishing
gear currently being used is expensive.
