Antonia Yulo-Loyzaga, CCARPH Co-Principal Investigator, in SRI 2021 Dialogue Forum

CCARPH Co-Principal Investigator Ms. Antonia Yulo-Loyzaga (President of the National Resilience Council), together with Mr. Hans Sy (Co-Chair for the Private Sector of the Executive Committee, National Resilience Council), will be in a panel for SRI 2021. Their session will take place on June 14, 2021, 3 PM (Philippine Standard Time).

Disasters have long been fatal threats in human history. Along with rapid growth of economies and urbanization, human society has recently become even more vulnerable in terms of the loss and damages from disasters. While extensive research has been done to learn relevant bio-physical processes and impacts, we recognize that effective mitigation of impacts requires strategies for disaster risk management at all stages, from preparation to prevention and recovery. A variety of stakeholders are involved in developing and implementing such management strategies, including governmental organizations, civil society centric NGOs, and NPOs, and academically focused consortia. The objectives, priorities, and experiences of different stakeholders vary quite a lot depending on specific local and regional context. Sharing with each other all the experiences and best practices is a constructive process to enhance the overall performance in the work of disaster risk management and to build up societal resilience. Also as we already perceive, anthropogenic climate change has significantly enhanced impacts of disasters. More engagements and collaborations among stakeholders is essential in view of anticipated increases in hazards and vulnerability.

The aim of this session is to bring experienced stakeholders together to share their knowledge and wisdom through the open discussion so that effective strategies and best practices can be exchanged and disseminated. All registered participants of SRI2021 are welcomed to join us in the discussion.
