Have we institutionalized DRRM in the Philippines?
Domingo, Sonny N.; Olaguera, Ma. Divina C. | May 2017
Slow economic development, wealth distribution disparities, high population growth, and rapid urbanization are some of the factors that increase the country’s vulnerability to disasters. As such, an effective disaster risk reduction and management (DRRM) scheme requires action on several fronts: good governance and institution building, social protection and antipoverty effort, investment on augmented capacity and resilient infrastructure, and sustainable resource management. The government must embed it in development planning and institute appropriate development policy to lessen vulnerability to a multitude of hazards and promote national resiliency. This Policy Note assesses the extent of DRRM institutionalization in the country.
