Mining related hydrologic disruptions occurring during an El Niño induced drought have the potential to disrupt resources relied upon by the poor and create a disaster, the situation where a natural hazard impacts upon a vulnerable population.
Natural disasters worldwide regularly impact on human activities. As a frequently occurring natural disaster, drought has adverse impacts on agricultural production.

In an editorial for vulnerability to natural hazards addressed the question of integration between natural and social scientific approaches based on a number of research studies. Their findings show that, studies that are dedicated to different components of vulnerability (e.g.
frequency and magnitude of a hazard, elements at risk, exposure. The Philippines is prone to various climate/ weather-related hazards because of its location in the tropics, along the path of typhoons, monsoons and El Niño-La Niña.
RISK TO PROJECTED TEMPERATURE INCREASE: The areas most at risk to temperature increase during the projected climatology are Mindanao and Central Visayas.sharing activities.
To achieve this, high quality comprehensive hazard and vulnerability maps for major natural hazards would need to be produced or updated.
