  • GREETINGSWe know that at the forefront of disaster management are the Local Chief Executives. But we would also like to assure our LCEs that they are not alone – disaster and climate change is EVERYONE’s concern and thus, we need to work hand-in-hand to achieve resilient communities.
  • The country is 3rd in the world in terms of exposure and vulnerabilities to disasters and if we look at data on the risk rankings, we are consistently in the top 10. This means that we should have mechanisms to address these risks, exposures and vulnerabilities because, while often they are inevitable, we have the ability to mitigate, and to some extent, prevent them from being disasters.We have more than 20 Billion in damages from Ondoy and Pepeng alone. This should already compel us to address the issue of disasters and climate change but above the property damages are the loss of lives – this, above all else, propels us to move to action.
  • Again, just to establish that these four (4) events are present in the country. Thus, the task ahead is not anymore on convincing people that we have contributed to this steady increase but rather, we are to ask: what are we doing to reduce the human contributions to the worsening impacts of extreme weather events; andwhat mitigation and adaptation measures are we doing in terms of climate change
  • World trend shows that it is the hydrometeorological hazards that have had the most alarming increase thus, the interventions are focused on to the contiguous local government units (LGUs) in the periphery of the 18 major river basins in the country consisting of 47 Provinces. We invite convergence with the Commission to focus efforts on the targets. This way, we can have harmonized efforts and ladderized initiatives for more effective results. The 18 Major River Basins (MRBs) are flashed on the screen.  Cagayan River BasinMindanao River BasinAgusan River BasinPampanga River BasinAgno River BasinAbra River BasinPasig-Laguna de BayBicol River BasinAbulug River BasinTagum River BasinIlog-HilabanganPanay River BasinTagoloan River BasinAgus River BasinsDavao River BasinCagayan de Oro River BasinJalaur River BasinBuayan-Malungun Note that some of the WB-GFDRR and the Locally-funded sites we have started last year are carried over since most are part of the LGUs in the MRBs and it is only appropriate to include those outside the MRBs for continuity.
  • While we have various environmental laws, these three (3) laws directly relate to DRRM and CCA. I am confident that everybody here has at least an idea on the salient features of the DRRM and Climate Change Act and the Act Creating the People Survival Fund.What we really need to do is to find:Points of complementation – which aspects/actions are involved in realizing the mandates of the law? And;Point of integration – where would all this lead us to?
  • March this year, the NDRRMC gathered various stakeholders for a National DRRM summit. The DILG facilitated the session on Preparedness and as an output, a roadmap was proposed. Let me share it with you as I know, some of us here were also present during that time. From the gaps, we have tried to map-out a road map to strengthen the LCE role in DRRM as the LCE takes leadership and should advocate SHARED communal responsibility (a hand-in-hand approach) to ultimately achieve resilient and climate-adaptive communities. The roadmap starts with the formulation of the local plans (or updating and review of those with existing) accompanied with resource allocationWe then move into policy enforcement coupled with review (as necessary) and monitoring of complianceSimultaneously, the mechanisms for institutionalization the LDRRMC/O should take place in tandem with awareness campaigns and capacity development Finally, we should establish sustainability mechanism through multi-stakeholdership , one-government approach and LGU performance review
  • This is an attempt to summarize the function and role of the Local Chief executive and the local disaster risk reduction and management office: to lead, manage and coordinate. This is superimposed with the three staff functions of the Local DRRM office. But more than that, together with Monitoring and Evaluation, we realize that research and development are cross-cutting activities that compliments these functions and must be pursued by local governments together with local research institutions to truly provide for science-based/influenced decision-making.
  • Now a lot of us are asking: WHAT CAN I DO NOW? Flashed on the screen are a menu of options that the we may choose from to commit to. We just need ONE commitment a month to start making a difference.In DISASTER MITIGATION AND PREVENTION, the we should initiate the assessment of the LGU in the different hazards present in the community and create policies addressing them – we know that the knowledge of the local research institutions will make this process faster and easier;In DISASTER PREPAREDNESS, the LCE should see to it that the LGU has updated capacities and facilities for DRRM and the LRI may be the service provider to give such interventions; In DISASTER RESPONSE, to activate different local instrumentalities (part of it are different stakeholders from business sectors to the academe), facilities and resources to manage the impact of disasters; andIn DISASTER REHABILITATION AND RECOVERY, to make sure that the basic needs are sustained while recovering and that gaps in the previous disaster are addressed in the long-term and that lessons learned will be remebered
