Disaster Risk Management and Institutional Strengthening (DRMIS)
Description of Project:
The Disaster Risk Management and Institutional Strengthening (DRM-IS) Project is a collaborative undertaking between the Agence Française de Développement (AFD), through a grant mobilized from the European Union’s Asia Investment Facility, and the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG). The Project aims to strengthen the scope and certification mechanisms of the Disaster Preparedness Audit (DPA), an innovative mechanism developed by Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) since 2012 and initially focus on flood risks, taking into account other climate-related and natural hazards, such as typhoons, storm surge, landslides, and earthquakes. The Project will support DILG in reinforcing the DPA external review mechanisms to ensure data quality and enforcement while maintaining cost-effective verification solutions. Furthermore, it seeks to support the pilot implementation of an enhanced DPA methodology (first year) and its subsequent replication on a national scale (second year).
Description of actual services provided by your staff within the assignment:
The Project has three components aimed at strengthening the CCA/DRRM capacity and technical competencies of DILG regional and field/local offices (Component 1), enhancement of the DPA methodology and system implementation (Component 2); and provision of key DRRM TA support to partner implementing local government units (LGUs) (Component 3).
