1 Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Measures


3 Recognition of different actors

4 Decentralization: Development of Local Structures Composition of the LDRRMC (Sec. 11.a) Governor/ Mayor Chair DRRM Officer Health Officer Engineering Officer Agriculture Officer Budget Officer Veterinary Officer Private Sector AFPPNPABCPNRC CSO Planning & Dev’t Officer Social Welfare & Dev’t Officer Superintend ent of Schools Bureau of Fire Protection Gender & Dev’t Officer Members LDRRMO (Sec. 12) DRRM Officer Administrative & Training Operations & Warning Research & Planning Local governments have the capacity to declare a state of calamity

5 Risk Assessment: Identifying and Organizing the Most Vulnerable sectors Targeting the women, children and elderly; hazard-prone communities; discriminated people; informal settlers; mining affected communities; remote small islands

6 Risk Assessment: Addressing Uncertainty in Assessing Risks Valuing community knowledge through Participatory Capacities and Vulnerability Assessment (PCVA) Engagement with Scientists to identify emerging and imminent hazards Dialogues to surface sectoral and gender-based knowledge

7 Risk Reduction: Building Capacity Para-legal Training Enterprise and employable skills training Psycho-Social Support DRR & PCVA

8 Risk Assessment: Installing Early Warning Systems Linking Upland and lowland communities to provide EARLY warning Community- based Monitoring Community-based Communication Systems

9 Risk Reduction: Introducing Redundancy Communication Systems Community-Based Response capacities Response Diversity Repetitive Emergency drills

10 Risk Reduction: Protecting the Environment Solid Waste management Beach Clean-ups Sandbagging Reforestation

11 Risk Reduction: Building Safe Settlements Stabilizing slopes Building safe housing, foot paths, evacuation centers Self-help and Retrofitting Training

12 Risk Reduction: Generating Disaster-Resilient / Climate-Smart Livelihoods Seaweed-based CompostFlood-Resistant Crops/ Diversified Crops Alternative Agricultural practices

13 Risk Reduction: Diversifying Livelihoods Diverse Livelihoods Associative Livelihoods using Value Chain Analysis

14 Risk Reduction: Ensuring Food Security Urban container and Community Gardens Sustainable Agriculture/ Sloping Agriculture Land Technology Mobile Gardens

15 Risk Reduction: Ensuring Access to Safe Water Water filtration Community- Based water System Rainwater Catchment

16 Risk Reduction: Rekindling the Values of Saving and Stockpiling Seedbanking and Nursery Food processing and Packaging Microfinancing

17 Governance: Influencing multi-level Governance Systems Mainstreaming in Barangay Development Plans Linking local and National Policy Lobbying Leveraging and Use of Calamity Funds for DRR Campaigning

18 Disaster Preparedness: Preparing for Disasters Provision of life saving equipment and training Contingency Planning

19 Responding to Disasters Emergency Relief based on international standards Pre-positioning Response capacity through CA Rapid Response and Assessment Team (CARRAT)

20 Knowledge Management: Managing Knowledge Awareness Building Activities Networking/GIS Consortium Building Visible Hazard Maps Documentation, production and dissemination of knowledge products

21 Knowledge Management: Investing on Learning Cross partner visits Cross Partner and Community- based Learning Circles Work in diverse ecosystems

22 Strategies 1.Advocacy and Information, Education and Communication (IEC) Mobilize and harness the print and broadcast media to regularly communicate, warn and educate people nationwide about DRRM. Evidence-based advocacy is key for effective information sharing and making people understand DRRM. 2. Competency-based capability building Customized training programs should be developed to ensure that people are trained based on the needed skills in the different DRRM aspects. 3. Contingency Planning More commonly used before as only part of disaster preparedness activities, contingency planning is now a living document which is updated and used in all the different aspects of DRRM

23 4. Education on DRRM and CCA for ALL education through the integration of DRR concepts in the curriculum (i.e., basic education, NSTP, bachelors’ degree) and for the public sector employees 5. Institutionalization of DRRMCs and LDRRMOs 6. Mainstreaming of DRR in ALL plans In all 4 aspects, we need to ensure that DRRM (and CCA) is mainstreamed in the various programs, plans, projects of either national or local government units, including the private sector groups and other members of the community.

24 7. Research, Technology Development and Knowledge Management With the changes in the climate and technological advances, we need research to help us innovate, adapt and maximize the use of our resources to help our people reduce and manage the risks to disasters. This also include database development and the documentation, replication and recognition of good practices 8. Monitoring, evaluation and learning Feedback mechanisms are important aspects of gauging performance targets and learning from our experiences on the ground 9. Networking and partnership building between and among stakeholders, media and tiers of overnment
