Manila, Philippines – The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) received a US$3.75 million (approximately PhP 160 million) grant from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), which will be used to expand WFP’s disaster preparedness and response programme in the Philippines. Working in close partnership with the central government and the Office of Civil Defense, WFP and local government units in four disaster-prone provinces of Sorsogon, Benguet, Cagayan and Laguna have been rolling out a disaster preparedness and response pilot programme focused on building local emergency management capacity, disaster mitigation and protection of livelihoods. The new funding from USAID will enable WFP to expand its disaster preparedness activities to parts of the Visayas (Iloilo) and Mindanao (Cagayan de Oro, Butuan and Davao), and to engage local non-government organizations and universities in efforts to build resilience to natural disasters, increasingly exacerbated by climate change. The key components of this expanded initiative will include community-driven disaster mitigation and preparedness projects such as flood control and landslide mitigation activities, training for disaster management personnel tailored to local needs such as contingency planning, and the promotion of innovative and cost-effective disaster mitigation and climate change adaptation projects such as early warning techniques.
No one knows when exactly a natural calamity will occur so being prepared is definitely a must. The beginning of August 2012 has proved to be challenging especially to those affected by the floods brought about by the monsoon rains. Whether there’s an impending typhoon or not, it is better to save these hotlines in your phones or list them down in a directory where people in your house can easily access them.


An average of 20 typhoons and dangerous storms arrive in the Philippines from the Pacific Ocean over the eastern seaboard yearly. All governmental and private entities responsible for large segments of the population  should be prepared for these fateful natural disasters and put into force mitigation techniques to reduce potential risk and loss of life. Information, preparation and understanding of these massive natural disasters is critical for the effective reduction in loss of life and limb. Over 800 people were killed by the eruption, mostly by roofs collapsing under the weight of accumulated and saturated wet ash, a hazard that was largely exacerbated by the simultaneous arrival of Typhoon Yunya. At the writing of this paper, the Taal Volcano is currently exhibiting signs of another eruption. Bad weather, especially during typhoon season, poor maintenance, overloading of vessels -- especially during the Christmas season as families return to their villages for reunions -- and lax enforcement of regulations has brought many tragedies. The need for terrorism suppression and bomb analysis, search techniques and evacuation procedures are critical.


These hotlines are based from the information released by the Presidential Communication Development and Strategic Planning Office. These comprehensive and timely seminars provide the kind of training needed to better-prepare administrators and first responders. Alert level two is currently in effect for Taal, which lies only 30 miles south of the Philippine capital city of Manila.
2016, the next National Seminar-Worskhop on Science Investigatory Projects will be held on April 22-24 at the Concourse Convention Center in Legazpi City, Albay. With this, we at Club New You give you practical tips to help you and others in need during these critical times.
