Updating the Cavite Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Plan


     A Planning Workshop to update the Cavite Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Plan (PDRRMP) was conducted on November 9 to 11, 2016 at the Seorabeol Grand Leisure Hotel, Subic Bay, Freeport Zone, Zambales.



     Participated by the Cavite PDRRM Council, the output of the said capacity-building program will be the 2017-2022 Cavite PDRRMP which will serve as the provincial guide on how sustainable development can be achieved through inclusive growth while building the adaptive capacities of communities, increasing the resilience of vulnerable sectors, and optimizing disaster mitigation opportunities with the end in view of promoting people’s welfare and security towards gender-responsive and rights-based sustainable development.

     Provincial Administrator for Internal Affairs Engr. Enrico M. Alvarez graced the event and shared a special message to all the participants, underscoring the need to have a plan and prepare at all times.

     Before the workshop proper, Provincial Planning and Development Coordinator Mr. Jesus Barrera, presented the thrusts of the Provincial Government of Cavite and its integration in the PDRRMP, while PDRRMO Cecil Miranda discussed the Risk Profile of Cavite. Operations Head of the Office of Civil Defense 4A Mr. Frederick Bragas  presented the highlight of the four thematic areas of DRRM: Prevention and Mitigation, Preparedness, Response, and Recovery and Rehabilitation.  Moreover, Ms. Felipa Servañez together with Ms. Daryl Avila of the PSWDO and Ms. Trixia Flores of the PG-COPS, gave a thorough discussion of Preparedness and Response, respectively.

     The workshop is heeding the call of President Rodrigo Duterte, chair of the National DRRMC, to implement programs, activities and projects for DRRM, with emphasis on preparedness actions for effective response to prevent the negative impacts of disasters and climate change. Most importantly, Republic Act 10121 (The Philippine DRRM Act of 2010) requires DRRM councils in all levels – national to barangay – to have their respective DRRMPs as it emphasizes strengthening local governments and the importance of local communities. The same act also empowers regional and local disaster management bodies in terms of responsibilities and funding.

   Spearheaded by the Provincial Government-Cavite Office of Public Safety/PDRRM Office, the workshop concluded with the way forward where all member offices and agencies assured their commitment to the completion and implementation of the plan. The 2016 4th Quarter PDRRMC Meeting ensued thereafter.
