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 Human Ecology

The College started as an institute on November 28, 1974 and was reorganized into a college in 1983. It advocates and uses interdisciplinary, holistic, and integrative approaches to understand human-environment interactions. It envisions the development of human-centered, self-reliant, and ecologically stable communities by addressing basic human needs, resource utilization and management, environmental stability, and delivery of social services at the family and community levels in the Philippines and in Asia. As such, its mission is to advance the body of knowledge in human ecology to improve operational capabilities and to strengthen functional commitment in human nutrition and food, human and family development, community and environmental resource planning, and social development services. In essence, the College develops programs for research, training, and community service towards a desirable quality of life.
