This study focused on the disaster preparedness of 92 municipalities in Panay Island, central Philippines. These three key international policies developed by United Nations Frameworks were signed and approved in 2015 (Banwell et al., 2016): 1) The Sendai Framework, which focused on the reduction of disaster losses considering health, livelihood and lives, was signed by 187 member states. To be able to arrive to the final SNAP document, it took information from the Four point action plan of action on disaster preparedness (4PPADP), published by the National Disaster Coordinating Council (NDCC), which included information on how to obtain positive information from key stakeholders. To be able to achieve this, vertical communication between LGUs and central government will be a key element. and regional frameworks. The initial follow up of the Hyogo initiative with the creation of the NDRRMP was good and the way was started, but a reticence of will until 2013 and Haiyan avoided the evolution of the DRR activities the way that they should have. in the country. PERCEPTIONS OF DISASTER RESILIENCE AND PREPAREDNESS IN THE PHILIPPINES • INTRODUCTION • V Yet, 83 percent of Filipinos claimed to have discussed emergency plans with their families. Philippines. Municipalities make up most of local governments in the country. List of disasters in the Philippines. DUMAGUETE CITY -- In the wake of two major quakes that rocked the country since Monday, the chief of the Albay Public Safety and Emergency Management Office (APSEMO) emphasized that disaster preparedness is the key to successful disaster mitigation and response.

Scientific Research Volcanic eruptions Pre-history. INTRODUCTION The Philippines is naturally prone to disasters – typhoons, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, landslides, floods, tsunamis, and others. The Hyogo’s Framework for action operational plan was distributed for dissemination and approval in November 2006 and the Filipino NDRRMP was approved in 2010. Even the media has a role in the dissemination of correct information during a disaster, he said.

Daep also highlighted the need for LGU officials to take a pro-active stand in disaster preparedness because the success of a technical team also depends on the support of the decision-makers. 3) The incorporation of risk reduction approaches into the implementation of emergency preparedness, response and recovery programmes. The framework has been formulated to continue providing tools for the achievement of the MDGs (Burkle et al., 2014). “Our office has been institutionalized and our program on disaster preparedness has become sustainable so that regardless of a change in political leadership, we are still there. The Hyogo framework of action (HFA) started a ripple effect on the countries, which in the case of the Philippines was represented by the enactment of the Republic Act 10212, which has become to be known as the Philippine Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Act of 2010. • The disaster preparedness and resilience system in the Philippines was found to have primarily one-way relationships, with less than 1% of relationships being reciprocal, or … The expected outcome of the implementation of the framework is “the substantial reduction of disaster losses, in lives and in the social, economic and environmental assets of communities and countries” (Asian Conference on Disaster Reduction 2006 (ACDR 2006), 2007). prevention, promotion and response, representing the 69% of social expenditure Best known for achieving zero casualty during calamities, the province of Albay has institutionalized its disaster risk reduction and management office. (“ Asia meets to implement Sendai Framework-World”, s. f.). The NDRRMP strengthens the resilience (Manyena, 2006) of the communities on disaster preparedness and response through the partnership of stakeholders, the National Government and Local Government Units (LGUs). Increased level of awareness and enhanced capacity of the community to the threats and impacts of all hazards Philippine Information Agency (PIA) 8. Following the Hyogo framework, the concept of vulnerability considers the socio-economic factors. Two hundred nurses were invited to participate in the study, with 170 responses (105 hospital nurses and 65 community nurses) or an 85% response rate, during the months of April 2014 through July 2014. As a member of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) the Philippines takes part, where the disasters and its impact on the different country members is discussed (“ APEC High Level Policy Dialogue on Disaster Resiliency-Thailand”, s. f.). The described challenges for collaboration on health DRR in the Philippines included as a main element the lack of available documents and awareness of DRR activities and available research (Banwell et al., 2016).

Gaps in the basics for any research continue with the lack of a unified definition of community, continuing with a single way to measure social and capital as well as big limitations of access to marginalised groups of the communities (Kabil & Kabeil, 2011). Review of International Communities are equipped with necessary There have been political efforts to create guidelines They cannot remove us from office and that assures us of continuity of the program,” Daep said, adding that this should also be replicated in other parts of the country. If the article met the criteria, the article was read and then accepted or rejected. country and regional areas. With the implementation of the NDRRMP the Philippines will have: “Safer, adaptive and disaster resilient Filipino communities towards sustainable development”. DISASTER MANAGEMENT PRACTICES IN THE PHILIPPINES: AN ASSESSMENT Through the years, the Philippines has adopted various approaches from disaster preparedness and response in the 1970s, to disaster management in the 1980s, to disaster risk management in the 1990s and eventually disaster risk reduction in the years 2005 and beyond. As a result, all the DRR community based activities that are being developed and have been identified in previous studies (Alcayna et al., 2016) of the full disaster response cycles have identified important gaps, both at research and practical levels. Sensitization campaigns happened both for the population and for the Decision makers at all levels, from barangay up to National level providing the opportunity and the will. A privately-run disaster resilience group is urging the Philippine government to set up a new agency to take charge during disasters. The second difference is the approach to disasters, coming from a more reactive and post disaster management to a pro-active focus, where the preparation and preparedness measures aim at building the resilience of the communities and countries that are disaster prone. It took place in Kobe, Hyogo, Japan and the document produced was the “Hyogo framework for action 2005-2015” (Burkle et al., 2014). The DW article, “Philippines: A country prone to natural disasters” listed the major disasters and calamities that are hitting the country. so as to work on disaster risk reduction and vulnerability reduction for the 1 Faculty of Education and Health, Camilo José Cela University, Madrid, Spain.

Over ten years had to pass by until 2005, when the UN called for a second World Conference on Disaster Reduction. a literature review of the published manuscripts on different sources, It was as of June of 2014, just 5 months after the impact of Hayian, when there was a new, updated and comprehensive document published; the National Disaster Response Plan (NDRP), supported by JICA (Japanese Cooperation) (Matsuoka & Shaw, 2014). The Philippines is considered to be one of the most storm-exposed countries on Earth. This second document had several differences from the first one in Yokohama (Egawa, MacIntyre, Beadling, Walsh, & Shimomura, 2014), starting from the framing of the period in time until the next revision, supporting this way the commitment of keeping it a live document and a regular exercise. The activities have been divided into three main timelines: This document was intended to become a roadmap where the objectives in DRR, with the key objectives for the next 10 years would be collected. Personal disaster preparedness ranged from 12% (having a disaster kit for car) to 64% (safe storage for important documents). These presented cross cutting issues which include; multi-hazard approaches, gender perspective and cultural diversity, community and volunteer participation and the capacity building and the transfer of technologies. It was not only the landfall of typhoon Yolanda and the winds and rains associated with it, but the sea surge that came with it, creating a pseudo-tsunami in the coastal areas which went up to 1km inland, that created a disastrous situation. and promotional levels, including the political initiatives at local, country ABS-CBN News Posted at Jul 18 08:09 PM. The Philippines is one of the most high-risk countries in the world for experiencing natural disasters. While earthquakes can be predicted, it is not possible to make a forecast, he noted. Most participants (88%) indicated at least … However, only 27 percent of the population was confident that they could adapt to changes resulting from a disaster, and The Philippines is one of the most disaster-prone countries in the world and frequently ranks among the top three countries most impacted by disasters. Despite the fact that the Strategic National Action Plan (SNAP) (“ Philippines: Strategic national action plan (SNAP) for disaster risk reduction 2009-2019 — Policy, Plans & Statements—Knowledge Base—PreventionWeb.net”, s. f.) for disaster risk reduction, a 10 year plan from 2009 until 2019, which follows the same roadmap as the Hyogo framework, this document was not implemented. As a result, the Filipino government produced the National Disaster Response and Recovery Management Plan (NDRRMP), which adapted the Hyogo framework and the already existing SNAP to their legislation. (“ Towards Policy Integration of Disaster Risk, Climate Adaptation, and Development in ASEAN”, s. f.). initiatives…) in the DRR process in an area to avoid duplication of activities The legal documents reviewed to support the situation of the response of the Filipino community were complemented with the already existing academic studies published on the subject. Copyright 2021 Philippine News Agency. Like many countries in the world, the Philippines has had its share of disasters … An Academic Publisher, Disaster Preparedness in the Philippines: From the Will to the Way (). Fishermen on sea saw a fiery and swift ball of fire falling from sky (daytime). The enactment of Republic Act 10121 otherwise known as the Philippine Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Act of 2010 has laid the basis for a paradigm shift from just disaster preparedness and response to disaster risk reduction and management (DRRM).The National DRRM Plan serves as the national guide on how sustainable development can be achieved through inclusive growth while … Our approach now is not to rescue but to prepare the victims so they can do their own rescue to protect themselves,” he pointed out. archipelago one of the most disaster-prone areas in the world. “Then they can serve themselves even without the intervention of government because as a matter of rule in disaster protection, the first responder must be able to see and assess the situation.”. Their DRR mechanisms are strong and are a part of the mind-set of the community, but the legal framework has been missing for many years. This study examined the perceived level of disaster preparedness in Philippine nurses. The list of possible natural disasters includes earthquakes, floods, mudslides, typhoons, and volcanic eruptions. Unfortunately, the response mechanisms worked as they had been working until that moment: regional solidarity, support from neighbouring Regions and then the support from the National level. In terms of disaster preparedness in the Philippines, the raison du jour is localized, decentralized contingency planning stemming from local governments. Multilevel efforts to prevent the results of the disasters second one in Hyogo in 2005 produced a comprehensive guideline for the risk The NDRRMP got its legal support after the approval by the executive committee of the National DRRM Council and the final version was ready by December 2011, three years after the SNAP was approved. Its original name was Philippine Disaster Recovery Foundation, but after Yolanda, we began to shift our strategy to disaster prevention and preparedness. Design. The Filipino archipelago is composed of over 7100 islands and is located in the Pacific ring of fire and the typhoon belt, experiencing an average of over 20 typhoons every year (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, 2015). By Mary Judaline Partlow The memorandum No. Disaster Preparedness. It would include the vision and the projection of the desired results, basing itself on the Hyogo Framework for action (“ Philippines: Strategic national action plan (SNAP) for disaster risk reduction 2009-2019—Policy, Plans & Statements— Knowledge Base—PreventionWeb.net”, s. f.).

The frameworks described have a 5 to 10-year validity and are documents in progress, with theoretical deadlines, which in rare cases are respected and the objectives achieved. As a result of Preparedness can save lives and minimize damage. “The priority of the LGU is response, meaning, preparing the responders for rescue but I suggested to them to empower the community because what we need here is that there will be no victims of any disaster,” Daep said in broken English and Filipino. like archipelagos, countries in high risk areas and high impact areas. The convergence of financial development, the DRR agreements and the climate change initiatives create an optimum scenario for the development of the policies required (Carabine, 2015). Then again, each and every one of the local government Health Emergency Preparedness Responses and Recovery Plans include specific hazard assessments for their areas (Wridt, Seley, Fisher, & DuBois, 2014). These efforts are being developed at operational There have been political efforts to create guidelines so as to work on disaster risk reduction and vulnerability reduction for the most vulnerable countries, with the first world conference held in 1994. Disaster mitigation, prevention and preparedness has been in the international agenda for over 20 years. actors involved (local government, INGOs, regional government, international NDRRMP: National Disaster Response and Recovery Management Plan. The country lies in the Pacific Ring of Fire were 80% of earthquakes occur. Govt. hitting the Philippines have been developed, including the local, regional, This NDRRMP presented the roadmap for DRR in the Philippines for the following 5 years, 2010 to 2015. (Photo by Judy Flores Partlow). The Partnerships developed in the preparedness phase reviewed by previous studies (Carabine, 2015) Identified that the approach and initial intentions differ from what eventually took place and the stakeholders engagements. The way presented to achieve this objective is by prioritising four main areas as part of a whole and not taking them independently. The Philippines is very vulnerable to natural disasters because of its natural setting, as well as its socio‐economic, political and environmental context ‐ especially its widespread poverty. For the period between 2009-2019 the SNAP includes the following: • All of which are clustered in 5 objectives, o Mobilization of resources (financial and economic viability). and communication between levels of implementation, the clarification of the A descriptive, cross‐sectional research design was used in this study. As of the finalization of this manuscript, the climate change initiative in the ASEAN area are still ongoing with frameworks such as “The ASEAN Vision 2025” on DRR, where the member states are encouraged to develop and implement new strategies by 2020. Having an increasing number of in-depth documents such as the Hyogo Framework and the NDRRMP as references, complemented by the SNAP and the local identifiers of hazards, and being aware of their situation and vulnerability, should have been enough for the will of the Philippine community to implement it by providing the way. He lamented that unfortunately, this is not the priority of the LGUs. When these partnerships approach the capacity building of the local structures, the results obtained present a wide variety of responses, from human resource capacity building with training programs to the increase in institutional capacities by the creation of partnerships between the LGUs and the partner in particular. It is during 2014, with the influx of resources when the different departments in charge of a disaster response such as the Department of Health (DoH), the Department of Interior and Local Governance (DILG) and the Office of Civil Defence (OCD) started to improve and polish their protocols and procedures. and looking forward to engaging in synergetic initiatives. It is time for the policy-makers and implementers to have the will by taking advantage of the way created. The key words used were: DRR Philippines, Asia-Pacific DRR, DRR framework. Asked what has made Albay a front-runner in disaster preparedness, he shared that they have made it a “career” to put a premium on the lives of their constituents. AV conducted the literature review, analyzed the data and was the principle author in writing the manuscript. Within these high level policy meetings, the members agree upon activities such as: provision of businesses with tools to help them prepare for hazards, the promotion of community based approaches and research and education of the population as well as the promotion of public-private partnerships.

Introduction: The Department of Education of the Philippines implements one of the provisions of the Philippine disaster risk reduction and management act of 2010 (DRRM Act) to integrate DRRM in the school curriculum and other educational programs, and to heighten the level of resiliency of students toward natural disasters. o Inclusiveness of the Filipino citizens in the decision making. Methods. Within these activities in capacity building, there is a clear gap to identify and develop what kind of training is needed for the local political leaders to improve their commitment and understanding of DRR (Jeremy, 2014). & Office for Disaster Risk Reduction, 2015) (Guha-Sapir et al., 2012). No country, no matter how well prepared may be, is ready to respond to such a disaster as Yolanda, but all the documents were already in place and some improvements should have happened since the approval in November 2011 until the disaster in November 2013. @article{Labrague2016DisasterPI, title={Disaster Preparedness in Philippine Nurses. The discrimination process was done by reading the title and abstract / short summary provided. National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Plan (NDRRMP). In many cases, Local Governments and Local NGOs were not aware of the cluster system for coordination of resources and not understand the how and where to request their needs (Alcayna et al., 2016). 3) The Paris Agreement on Climate Change, signed by 195 countries. The Hyogo framework (Burkle et al., 2014) had as a result the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Plan (NDRRMP) (Brassard, Giles, & Howitt, 2015), which followed the Hyogo initiative and created a single document where DRR was the main focus at all levels. This paper explores the policy and institutional mechanisms for disaster risk reduction management and research which have been conducted in the Philippines related to disaster preparedness, management and resilience. Geographically situated in the circle of fire in the Considering both issues, we find ourselves in a scenario where valuable documents are generated at different levels, but that would find benefits from each other if communication between governmental levels was improved. Being in one of the most vulnerable places in the planet for multi-hazards, it was a matter of time for a big disaster to happen, despite the fact that the “big one” is still expected to arrive, being this a mega earthquake such as the one in San Francisco in 1906. Typhoon Yolandac locked wind gusts over 210 Mph falling under a category 5 typhoon, struck the Philippine islands on November 2013, seven years after the approval of the HFA and three years after the approval of the Filipino NDRRMP. These academic documents did not provide the key documents, which were searched for using https://reliefweb.int/, a specialised site in DRR. By the time many Filipinos turn 21, they are likely to have experienced more than 200 tropical cyclones with top wind speeds of at least 118 km/h. Lastly, the disaster preparedness program of the DRRMP also identified the increase of capacity of institutions as one of its priorities. Warnings given by forecasters of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration cannot be ignored. To predict means to be able to tell the possibility of an earthquake occurrence in a certain area, but to forecast means to be able to tell when it would happen, and that is not possible, he explained. One cited activity as to disaster preparedness is the conduct of trainings on disaster preparedness and response as well as on search, rescue, and retrieval operations to barangay officials with basic/intermediate incident command system. The method used is a bibliographic and documental review of the published information concerning the Disaster Response and Recovery (DRR) in the Philippines and the response to super typhoon Hayian. In 1994 the “Yokohama Strategy for a safer world: guidelines for natural disaster prevention, preparedness and Mitigation” was approved. These trainings should be summative so as to create a single national training programme, where the different actors working in the country can participate and collaborate. The second one in Hyogo in 2005 produced a comprehensive guideline for the risk reduction for the most vulnerable countries, focusing on those most at risk like archipelagos, countries in high risk areas and high impact areas (Banwell, Rutherford, Mackey, & Chu, 2018) (Asian Conference on Disaster Reduction 2006 (ACDR 2006), 2007).
