Highlights

The residents of Cat Hai Island were able to preserve their traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) in predicting storms and floods.

Although TEK on storm and flood prediction was widely used by the residents, the knowledge was not integrated into the current disaster risk management (DRM) scheme of the island.

The DRM of the island can be improved by integrating relevant TEK.
