YPDR DRR Program

In the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan, one thing became very clear to YPDR as they worked to clean up and deliver disaster relief to the island: the local community lacks the necessary training and understanding of proper disaster risk reduction and preparedness. The scale and severity of Typhoon Haiyan provided a stark reality check of the current abilities of Bantayan Island to foresee natural disasters and alert the community. One of the most essential resources of disaster risk reduction is early detection and communication. Some of the ways in which YPDR is working to support such resources is through training programs, hazard mapping, data sharing, and encouraging local government to make life-saving information quickly and readily available to their communities.
