Ateneo de Manila University President Fr Roberto C Yap SJ delivers a message, on behalf of the University and the academic sector for the 2021 National Disaster Resilience Month Kick-off Ceremony

Executive Order No. 29 s. 2017 designates July of each year as the National Disaster Resilience Month (NDRM) throughout the country and mandates the conduct of activities relative to building of disaster resilience covering the four thematic areas.

This year’s NDRM theme: “Tamang Pamamahala’t Kahandaan, Kaalaman at Pagtutulungan sa Sakuna at Pandemyaý Kalasag ng Bayan”, emphasize the important role of disaster risk governance and the collaboration of all Filipinos to overcome the challenges of this pandemic and to build a green and resilient normal.

The limitations brought by COVID-19 pandemic has introduced alternative strategies using online tools and campaigns in strengthening public participation and increasing awareness in Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM) to DRR practitioners and the general public.

Together with the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) we enjoin everyone to participate in this month’s NDRM online activities.
