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.

School of Environmental Science and Management

The School of Environment Science and Management (SESAM) was established in 1977 in response to the country’s move to address the pressing concern of environmental degradation through instruction, research, and public service. SESAM envisions to be the center of excellence in the fields of environmental science and environmental management, consistent with the aspirations of the Filipino people, in a manner that fully respects the limits of nature.
