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.

National College of Public Administration and Governance

The National College of Public Administration & Governance (NCPAG) is the country’s leading academic institution in providing instruction, research and extension services in public management and public policy. It was established on 15 June 1952, as the Institute of Public Administration, the first of its kind in Southeast Asia. Over the years, the College has actively and consistently pursued a threefold mission: a) instruction, b) research, and c) public service. The NCPAG has expanded the field from an exclusive focus on governmental management to the broader concern of governance for the public interest. It thus studies not only the role of the bureaucracy but also that of the state and civil society in enhancing public service.
