Mapping and Analysis of Vulnerable Groups (MAVG) in the Philippines

Mapping and Analysis of Vulnerable Groups (MAVG) in the Philippines

Oct 21, 2021

In 2015, the United Nations (UN) Member States adopted the “Leave No One Behind” or LNOB agenda which seeks to enable and accelerate progress in achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by putting the furthest behind at the forefront of development initiatives.

Guided by this framework, a nationwide study titled, 'Mapping and Analysis of Vulnerable Groups (MAVG)', was conducted jointly by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Philippine government, with support from the Government of Japan, under the ‘DX4Resilience’ project. The said study—which gathered insights of vulnerable individuals throughout the country’s Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao regions—sought to support digital readiness in terms of climate and disaster resilience in the Philippines by better understanding where the most vulnerable are, the climate and disaster risks they face, their priority needs, and what barriers and opportunities that digital solutions can help address.
