Benguet piloted in DRR assessment project
by DSWD release

A total of 21,370 households from Benguet and Kalinga have been profiled and validated by the Department of Social Welfare and Development through the Disaster Vulnerability Assessment and Profiling Project (DVAPP) implemented with the support of the International Organization for Migration (IOM).

The DVAPP took off after the onslaught of Typhoon Ompong.

Based on the terminal report from DSWD-CAR’s Disaster Response Operations Monitoring and Information Center (DROMIC) as of Oct. 18, 2018, there are 115,057 families affected by Typhoon Ompong.

The enumeration or profiling of families was done from March to December 2018 by enumerators who conducted house-to-house enumeration and family-based interviews. The enumeration was done online with the use of an automated profiling that leads to automatic data consolidation.

For the period, a total of 14,519 families from Itogon, Benguet; 4,651families from Tublay, Benguet; and 2,200 families from Pasil, Kalinga were profiled and validated. As a result, these families are now included in the DSWD’s database of families with validated profiles which can be used as a basis for the provision of appropriate intervention in times of disasters.

The DVAPP is only implemented in the region as a pilot area, according to DSWD-CAR Director Janet P. Armas.

“Through DVAPP, we envision a simple and digitized beneficiary registration and verification which we could use for effective planning, management of interventions, monitoring, and reporting,” Armas said.

Profiled families will be given a DSWD Cares card which is a digitized access card that they can be used when availing of the programs and services provided by the DSWD in times of disasters.

On May 26, a total of 1,584 internally displaced persons (IDPs) have already received their livelihood assistance amounting to a total of P31,680,000. They were served through the Sustainable Livelihood Program of the DSWD. As of this date, 2,081 IDPs are yet to receive their assistance.
