CDRRMC beefs up competence of frontlines in disaster rehab

Members of the Cordillera Regional Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (CRDRRMC) completed a five-day training on Post-Disaster Need Assessment (PDNA), a multi-sectoral and multi-disciplinary structured approach on the government’s disaster rehabilitation and recovery program.

The training, which was spearheaded by the Office of Civil Defense-Cordillera and held at Ridgewood Residences from May 29 to June 2, included orientation on the PDNA mission, human recovery needs and damage and loss assessment, and table-top exercises to familiarize the participants with the PDNA forms and templates and in formulating an assessment report that corresponds to the provided disaster scenarios.

It also focused on the assessment of the possible impact of disasters on the productive, social, and infrastructure sectors and cross-sectoral areas.

CRDRRMC Chair and OCD Regional Director Andrew Alex Uy said the training was aimed to provide council members better understanding for proper implementation of PDNA, which is a newly developed tool on the government’s disaster rehabilitation and recovery efforts.

The CRDRRMC implemented an intensified PDNA last year in the aftermath of Typhoon Lawin where six teams were deployed to cover each of the six provinces in the region.

NEDA Regional Director Milagros Rimando, the CRDRRMC vice chair for Disaster Rehabilitation and Recovery during the training’s closing program, outlined the importance of having a larger pool of skilled persons for PDNA work that must be anchored on the “Build back better” principle given the importance of having a reliable, complete, and timely data and information for rehabilitation and recovery planning.

Rimando added that PDNA is an important part not only of the rehab and recovery phase but the whole Disaster Risk Reduction and Management cycle which is an essential component of both the Philippine Development Plan and the Cordillera Regional Development Plan 2017-2022.
