“Greater local coordination and networking can greatly strengthen the Philippines’ capacity to prepare for a disaster,” he added. A study found that institutional capabilities and disaster management performance were positively related to disaster-oriented competencies.

The report clearly assessed the state of disaster preparedness in the country. In 2017, it posted a 6.1% economic growth (National Economic and Development Authority 2017). Designating an interim disaster manager handling other full-time administrative functions impairs the DRRM office from making appropriate plans.

Since then, field agencies have conducted thousands of surveys. 1992 as cited by Scannel et al. This study used the state-designed Local Government Unit Disaster Preparedness Journal: Checklist of Minimum Actions for Mayors in assessing the readiness to natural hazards of 92 profiled municipalities in central Philippines inhabited by 2.4 million people.

Disaster Situation According to the World Risk Report of 2018, the Philippines is the third most vulnerable country to disasters. Further studies are necessary in the long term to . As front liners, local governments face the greatest challenge as they directly respond to natural hazards. DISASTER MANAGEMENT PRACTICES IN THE PHILIPPINES: AN ASSESSMENT Through the years, the Philippines has adopted various approaches from disaster preparedness and response in the 1970s, to disaster management in the 1980s, to disaster risk management in the 1990s and eventually disaster risk reduction in the years 2005 and beyond. It is a working group composed of various government, non-government, civil sector and private sector organizations of the Government of the Republic of the Philippines. Finally, equipment and tools include heavy equipment, rescue boats, ambulances, and early warning devices.

They have lesser funds than cities, but are first responders to calamities. It was the strongest tropical cyclone and deadliest disaster in Philippine modern history sparking catastrophic damage to coastal communities (Center for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters 2014 as cited by Dalisay and De Guzman 2016; Nakamura et al. https://doi.org/10.1108/17568691211248748/full/html, Philippine Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Act of 2010 (2010) Official Gazette of the Republic of the Philippines.

However, disaster plans may lack testing, such as practice drills, to assess their effectiveness before hazards hit (Muir and Shenton 2002 as cited by Tansey 2015). Storm surges were primarily responsible for the loss of lives, injuries and damages to properties in spite of early warning. In the past, only 30% could be spent for preparation. Region-wide-BDRRM Funds Figure 10 presents the Region-wide aggregated data on the total funds allocated by the barangays for Disaster Risk and Reduction Management (BDRRM). The Commission on Audit (COA), an independent office that reviews financial transactions in all public offices, assessed in 2014 the country’s DRRM practices. https://doi.org/10.1007/s11069-020-04383-0, DOI: https://doi.org/10.1007/s11069-020-04383-0, Over 10 million scientific documents at your fingertips, Not logged in Accessed 12 April 2019, Mainul H, Robson P (2003) Bangladesh and the Philippines: the health reform process.

Temporary shelters for livestock and putting up sign boards leading to evacuation areas are helpful to evacuees. It should be backed up by properly-trained responders (Coule and Horner 2007). 1985 as cited by Yaqoob 2017). It was found that there is no existing disaster preparedness plan in the municipality of Balangkayan, Eastern Samar during super typhoon Yolanda. Moreover, strengthening disaster risk governance in all levels for prevention, mitigation, preparedness, response, recovery, and rehabilitation is therefore necessary and fosters collaboration and partnership across mechanisms and institutions for the implementation of instruments relevant to DRR and sustainable development (Sendai Framework for DRR 2015–2030 2015). The area of disaster management receives increasing attention from multiple disciplines of research. There is a need to open the bureaucracy for reforms and flexibility in this period of new normal as long as transparency and accountability are heeded.

STUDY SCOPE In the Philippines, management of disaster risk reduction is governed by the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC). Thus, it is a valuable addition to library and information science literature, especially on disaster management in libraries. Spearman Rho was used in testing the significant relationship.

It can be indicated that the experience of personal injury or material losses during a disaster can motivate the people to become more prepared for future disaster events. LGUs with lesser number of barangays or villages had higher levels of preparation compared to those with more.

There is a need to beef up partnerships with civil society organizations, community volunteers, and local chamber of commerce and industry (Kapuco and Demiroz 2017). They were partially prepared regardless of profile, but the coastal, middle-earning, most populated, having the least number of villages, and middle-sized had higher levels of preparedness. The entire Panay Island is vulnerable to this hazard, but areas in the southwest are less affected. An investment in preparedness substantially reduces future disaster damage (Healy and Malhotra 2009). Disaster Preparedness provides for the key strategic actions that give importance to activities revolving around community awareness and understanding; contingency planning; conduct of local drills and the development of a national disaster response plan.

This study also identified a match or variation between the state guidelines and community DRRM practices, and the source of variations in the levels of preparedness in 92 municipalities. Data were analyzed using statistical package for social sciences, frequency count, percentage, and weighted mean. This finding corroborates the report of COA (2014) which identified the weaknesses of the country’s DRRM lack of capacity, lack of systematic distribution, and inadequately trained and equipped response team. This study focused on the Disaster Risk Reduction and Management of Tarlac City. https://agris.fao.org/agris-search/search.do?recordID=PH2000100148. The city disaster risk reduction and management structure; the identified hazards and evacuation areas; the Tarlac City DRRM Plan in four thematic areas as identified in the NDRRM Plan; the CDRRMO vehicles, equipment, and resources; and the community based responders are presented in this paper. The province of Iloilo has benefitted from its flood control project conceived after Tropical cyclone Fengshen (locally named Frank) submerged low-lying areas in June 2008. 2015). It is categorized into early warning, mobilization of DRRM structures and activation of systems and processes, evacuation and relief, search and rescue, and lifelines. This is a descriptive study based on a search of mainly peer-reviewed studies but also articles, reports, and disaster risk reduction and response projects in the Philippines. Since communities are first responders to any disaster (Walia 2008), strengthening their capacity to cope with calamities is crucial.
