CSF Revisits LDRRM Plan For 2015-2019 [ Thursday, 19th of October 2017 | 3 months ago ]
The City Government of San Fernando, in coordination with the Office of the Civil Defense Region 3, conducted a revisiting of the 2015-2019 Local Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Plan on October 18 to 20.
This was participated in by Mayor Edwin "EdSa" Santiago, Vice Mayor Jimmy Lazatin and all department heads of the local government unit and attached agencies under the Department of the Interior and Local Government.
Mayor EdSa said the 3-day activity aims to evaluate the implementation of Disaster Risk Reduction programs and assess if these are still aligned with the country's development plan and international agreements such as the Sendai Framework for action which was adopted in 2015.
The Sendai Framework, the successor instrument to the Hyogo Framework for Action, is a 15-year agreement which recognizes the state as the primary responsible for reducing disaster risk and losses. However, it suggests that the responsibility must be shared with the local government, private sector and other stakeholders.
"Our LDRRM plan contains programs, projects and activities focused on four thematic areas namely prevention & mitigation, recovery & rehabilitation, preparedness and response. These are funded by the local government and were conceptualized to strengthen the city's capacity and resiliency in the face of disasters," Santiago added.
For his part, City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Officer Raymond Del Rosario said that at the end of the activity, they expect to identify the gaps and problems encountered as well as provide recommendations to improve and strategize the implementation of the LDRRM plan.
"This is the ideal time to conduct a review and revisit since we are in the mid-year of its implementation. I believe we're on the right track; we have accomplished other programmed activities and the others are in the process," Del Rosario added.
