The CCARPH team led by the Dr. Emma Porio, and Academic Partners from Ateneo de Naga University and UP-Visayas participated in the Training of Trainers Workshop for the Academic Partners organized by National Resilience Council last June 11-13 at St. Giles Hotel in Makati City. This training is part of NRC’s Leadership for Resilient LGUs Program.
Ms. Donna Magno, Iloilo City’s Resilience Officer, shared that newly-elected Mayor Jerry Treñas already promised to construct a Resilience Office. Chief Resilience Officer Rene Gumba of Naga City discussed showcasing climate data and disaster technologies in the Naga City Innovation Market Fair that will happen in November. Iloilo and Naga are partner cities of CCARPH.

Manila Observatory scientists Dr. May Celine Vicente, Dr. Rosa Perez and Dr. Laurice Jamero discussed the Climate and Disaster Risk Assessment (CDRA) Manual including Hazard-Exposure-Vulnerability-Capacity (HEVC), influence diagram and impact chain. Dr. Porio facilitated the session on Social Dimensions in Risk to Resilience and Rationalized CDRA-based LGU Planning. The sessions will be cascaded by the Academic Partners in localized workshops in CCARPH partner-cities and other cities covered by the NRC Leadership for Resilient LGUs Program to help the LGU officials develop science-informed resiliency plans.
