NEDA-RDCS seeks solution to disaster risk, Climate Change in PH

MANILA – “Let’s anticipate and minimize the risk and let’s adapt and mitigate climate change”, Dr. Candido Cabrido, project consultant, said.

The National Economic and Development Authority-Regional Development Coordinating Staff (NEDA-RDCS) conducted a training workshop on Integrating Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation (DRR/CCA) in Local Development Planning and Decision-making Processes at the University of Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City on October 21-26, 2013.

Supported by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and the European Commission on Humanitarian Aid, the training was designed to help local development planners and decision-making bodies effectively update and refine their Disaster Risk Assessment (DRA) and Climate Change and Vulnerability Assessment (CCVA) reports.

Dr. Cabrido said this is primarily done by addressing the data and analytical gaps in the existing reports, as well as revising and enhancing the Provincial Development and Physical Framework Plan (PDPFP), through systematic and comprehensive mainstreaming of DRM and CCA.

He explained that the DRA assessment must include the hazard characterization, consequence assessment, risk estimation and risk evaluation.

Dr. Maricel Paringit said that the conduct of CCVA must consider the sensitivity, as well as the exposure and adaptive capacity of the community as well as the six sectors or areas of concern, such as: Agriculture, Forestry, Coastal and Marine, Water, Biodiversity and Health.

“Let’s start to prepare. Integrating DRA and CCA to the PDPFP is one way of preparing”, Dr. C.P. David of the National Institute of Geological Sciences, University of the Philippines, said.

“Let’s protect our water sources and manage our watershed well for us not to be like with other countries with no water sources, and (is) just dependent on their manmade lake”, he added.

Various lectures on how to mainstream DRR and CCA into Provincial Development Physical Framework Plans were also presented by UP experts.

Regions IV-B, VIII, CAR and the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM), and the provinces of Basilan, Tawi-Tawi, Sulu and Maguindanao took part in the mainstreaming activity. Some of the major outputs included the draft of enhanced Disaster Risk Assessment/Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment using tables and maps and PDPFP. Some experts on DRR and CCA from UP-Diliman were also present.

The mainstreaming activity is one of the mechanisms provided under Republic Act No. 9729, known as the Climate Change Act of 2009 or more aptly: “An Act Mainstreaming Climate Change into Government Policy Formulations, Establishing the Framework Strategy and Program on Climate Change, Creating for this Purpose the Climate Change Commission, and For Other Purposes”.
