80 LGUs in CAR have DRRM plans
by PIO release

The Department of the Interior and Local Government Cordillera said 80 local government units in the region have submitted their Local Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (LDRRM) plans, which is one of the major criteria for local governments to be awarded the Seal of Good Local governance (SGLG).

Mary Ann Griba, DILG-CAR regional DRRM-CCA focal person, said the only local governments that have not yet submitted their LDRRM plans are the provincial government of Ifugao and municipal governments of Hingyon, Ifugao and Bokod, Benguet.

Griba said that of the LGUs that have submitted their LDRRM plans, only 23 local governments have plans that are beyond 2017, which means that most Cordillera local governments have to update their LDRRM plans to comply with updated risk assessments and vulnerabilities in their areas of jurisdiction.

Griba said concerned government agencies are now extending the appropriate assistance to the LGUs that have not yet submitted their updated LDRRM plans so that local officials will be guided and for them to qualify for the SGLG.

She said the LDRRM plans LGUs must incorporate the interventions, programs, plans, and projects that will be implemented by government agencies and local governments to significantly reduce the exposure of their constituents to risks to hazards.

She added the agency is also assisting other LGUs to work out the appointment of Local Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Officers (LDRRMOs) in their localities so that there will be continuity in the implementation of various programs and projects related to disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation in their areas of jurisdiction to prevent the loss of lives and damage to properties.

Griba called on local officials to strictly adhere to the guidelines crafted for the appointment of LDRRMOs and the submission of updated LDRRM plans for their localities to be able to qualify for the stringent rules and regulations relative to their compliance to disaster risk reduction and management.

Griba expressed confidence that the LGUs that have not yet updated their LDRRM plans will be able to update their submitted plans and programs that will further empower their constituents to be disaster resilient for the benefit of safer places to live and zero casualties during the occurrence of natural calamities in their places.

LGUs are mandated to earmark at least five percent of their Internal Revenue Allotment for disaster risk reduction and management programs and projects to build disaster-resilient communities around the country.
