The UP Resilience Institute (UPRI) was established in 2016 with a mission statement to empower local communities through multidisciplinary research and actions toward resilience. Last year, the UP Resilience Institute Youth Mappers was formally launched under the UPRI with the aim of mapping the communities using volunteered geographic information (VGI) and building the capacities of the local communities in order to fight real world problems such as poverty, disease, hunger, and disasters.

With our new project, “Building Resilient Communities in Bohol Through the Use of OpenStreetMap (OSM)” funded by the TELUS International Community Board, we seek to improve the structures dataset including building footprints and road network and to produce municipal-level risk maps in the province of Bohol through the use of open-source tools such as OSM, QGIS, and WebSAFE that can be used for disaster risk planning and mitigation. OSM and its associated mapping tools are effective at providing rapid support to local government unit efforts in disaster risk reduction and management, including strengthening of contingency plans and risk-sensitive land use plans. 

Having embraced public participation and open data, we collaborate with like-minded organizations to help us improve emergency response and disaster mitigation throughout the country. Part of this effort is to conduct a 2-day OSM training in Bohol and finish the mapping task on HOT Tasking Manager (https://tasks.hotosm.org/project/6212). The mapping activities will run for 4 months (June-September). We hope to use the OSM data in creating municipal-level disaster risk assessment that can be used by the communities, LGUs, and NGOs.
