Philippines: National disaster risk reduction and management framework

This framework aims to raise awareness and understanding among governments and people on the country's DRRM goals. A national framework for DRRM, which shows the overall direction, set of priorities and which delineates the fundamental elements and components of disaster risk reduction and disaster risk management in the country, is necessary to guide national and local efforts in DRM.

The DRRM framework will provide a common direction towards addressing underlying causes of vulnerability to help reduce and manage the risks of disasters. The DRRM framework will also show that DRR and DRM efforts are not isolated activities but are inevitably linked to the development process and should converge and contribute towards attaining sustainable development.
