Abstract:In this bachelor thesis the question is posed ‘To what extent and how did the Haiyan typhoon crisis result in a change of the status quo on national decision-making in the Philippines regarding climate change?’ The Philippines is one of the countries most prone and vulnerable to climate change and the effects thereof, such as the increase in the chance of a typhoon the size of Haiyan hitting the Philippines again. Did the typhoon Haiyan crisis have an impact on climate policy in the Philippines? And if yes, to what extent? Several theories were used, mostly decision-making models and disaster management theories. Based on policy documents, literature, news articles and interviews, a narrative is made of climate policy in the Philippines and the typhoon Haiyan crisis. Based on the narrative, a hypothetical decision-making analysis is made. This has shown that there were no major changes in national decision-making regarding climate policy in the Philippines due to several factors. However, there were some minor changes in Local Government Units and in several governmental agencies in the Philippines which eventually could lead to more major changes regarding national decision-making and climate policy in the Philippines.
