The UP NOAH Center

The UP NOAH Center is a core component of the UP Resilience Institute. It was formally adopted by the University of the Philippines during the Board of Regents 1325th meeting on February 23, 2017 as a research center for climate actions and disaster risk reduction and management. An Executive Order signed by UP President Danilo L. Concepcion, (EO PLDC 17-03), established the NOAH Center as a research institute in the UP System.

The core of UP NOAH’s work is producing freely accessible, accurate, reliable, and relevant scientific disaster data. It also highlights a multidisciplinary approach in assessing risk and using the lens of different scientific areas. This ensures that Filipinos are provided an integrative appraisal of the natural hazards that put them in danger.

College of Education

The College is a Center of Training of the Department of Education and the Commission of Higher Education and a home base to several professional organizations. It also has expanded linkages with UNESCO, ASEAN, and other international organizations. The UP College of Education continues to fill the country’s need for qualified teachers and teacher-leaders as it remains at the forefront of teacher education.
