Naungan community just outside of Ormoc City is threatened by Typhoons and Tsunamis and plant Mangrove sea forests as a protection strategy. The Government is planning on relocating the community but not to another area where the fishermen can continue with their usual livelihood, these people are being moved to the mountains.
We will interview the residents, find out what they need and attempt to collaborate with the local government in the relocation process. As this is a recurring issue perhaps a building typology could be defined. More on this soon!
