A Coastal Vulnerability Assessment (CVA) was conducted by the Mines and Geosciences Bureau XI Geohazard and Engineering Geology Section in Maco, Davao de Oro. This includes shoreline mapping, documentation of shoreline characteristics, and beach profiling. CVA enables the government to plan for risk reduction programs for vulnerable coastal barangays that experience coastal erosion.

Coastal erosion is a result of geologic, atmospheric and oceanographic factors, including the relative sea level rise due to climate change. Moreover, rise of sea level has also been attributed to anthropogenic activities.

These activities are just one of the many efforts of MGB relevant to climate change mitigation, adaptation, and disaster preparedness.
