UP RI/NOAH Holds Teleconference with UP Campuses for CCA-DRR Initiatives
University of the Philippines Diliman - The UP Resilience Institute (UP RI) and NOAH Center teleconference was held last 20 October 2017 at the conference room of Information Technology Development Center (ITDC) building. Organized and hosted by UP Padayon Director Ma. Crisanta Flores, the activity aimed to discuss the Resilient UP Campuses project and the plans to execute Sen. Loren Legarda’s directive for the UP RI to help the Climate Change Commission (CCC) and lead all State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) to assist municipalities with formulating and completing their Local Climate Change Adaptation Plans (LCCAP).
Representatives from various departments of UP Diliman attended the meeting as well as officials from UP Manila, UP Baguio, UP Los Banos, UP Mindanao, UP Iloilo, and UP Open University.
UP RI would like to thank all of the representatives who extended their valuable time and expressed their interest in helping with the initiatives of UP RI/NOAH. It was clear in the meeting that the UP community was highly enthusiastic to help in the Climate Change Adaptation - Disaster Risk Reduction (CCA-DRR) efforts of the country. With this spirit, our concerted efforts that build on past accomplishments can forge resilience faster, ahead of future catastrophes.
We also extend our sincerest gratitude to the UP Padayon Office and to Executive Vice President Teodoro J. Herbosa for their invitation and valuable insights and contributions to the success of the initiative and activity.
We hope to see more representatives from the different UP units for the next UP RI/NOAH teleconference sessions. May we work hand in hand in making a more resilient Philippines!
