Greens PH Village Ecological base Governance Development Framework

 

PROJECT SUMMARY

The recent Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) concluded the debate’s on the real definition of climate change. The skeptics among the intellectuals of climate change cannot be arguing on the effects on lives and economy of the victims of the recent typhoon. Thousands of lives and millions of properties were destroyed. The fact still haunts the government and the so called intellectuals on the mitigation process that can address the same. For the sake of argument, whether it is in the context of climate change debate or not, the country is frequently visited by more than 30 typhoons annually. Statistically, the victims were from the poor communities of the country and almost facing tragedies of floods, landslides and economic dislocations.

Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Act define a clear definition on disaster mitigation brought about by typhoons and other natural calamities. It is a clear all multi-stakeholders initiative that guarantees intervention down to the village level of the country. The law itself mandates a comprehensive plan that guarantees Local Government Unit (LGU) initiatives and supervisions over the Disaster Risk Reduction and Management as embodied in the Internal Rules and Regulation to effectuate the same. It is strongly stated that community participation towards to the implementation of the law is suggested.

The Village Disaster Risk and Reduction Management (VDRRM) Process: Community Mobilization towards Climate Change Mitigation will be piloted in the sixteen (16) Baranggays in Laguna. From April to June 2014, this is intended to facilitate the formulation of a community based and responsive VDRRM.  The identified Baranggay are industrial/urban centers and lakeside and upland communities. It  will be a collaboration with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) both represented by its respective provincial office in Laguna, the members of the Sangguniang Baranggay, leaders and community facilitators of KABALANGAY and Partido Kalikasan (PK). The output will be duplicated in the entire 674 Baranggay of the Province.

II. RATIONALE

The failure of many laws of lack of people’ participation was addressed in the Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Act and the Climate Change Mitigation Act. These two exemplary laws served as the basis of the Conceptual Framework of the Village level Disaster Risk and Reduction Management (V/DRRM) Process.

Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Act provides for a clear definition of disaster mitigation. It is a clear all multi-stakeholders initiative that guarantees intervention down to the village level of the country. The law itself mandates a comprehensive plan that guarantees Local Government Unit (LGU) initiatives and supervisions over the Disaster Risk Reduction and Management as embodied in the Internal Rules and Regulation to effectuate the same.

It was attended by the representatives from the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Partido Kalikasan (PK) which was initiated by KABALANGAY. The RTD encompassed the commitment towards the realization of the Village Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (VDRRM) and the integration of different framework, strategy and methodology to effectively implement the same. On March 8, 2014, in compliance to the agreement set forth by the primary stakeholders of the process, the DENR, DILG both represented by the respective Provincial Office of Laguna, the leaders of the Partido Kalikasan (PK) and the respective Kagawad of the 16 Pilot Baranggay’s conducted a planning-workshop address the common template to be used in the process of conducting the Village level Disaster Risk and Reduction Management (V/DRRM) planning exercise.
