Philippines: Mindanao declaration on disaster risk reduction priorities

An eight-point declaration, which include: knowledge, emergency preparedness and response, disaster risk reduction and management plans, enforcement of laws, ecosystem-based approach, national legislation, institutional mechanisms, and implementation.

The declaration was approved by consensus during the Mindanao summit on disaster risk reduction and geo-hazard awareness, the first island-wide gathering to discuss and learn lessons from the Sendong tragedy in December 2011, convened by Mindanawon senators Aquilino "Koko" Pimentel and Teofisto Guingona.
