PICE joins the nation in the observance of the “National Disaster Resilience Month” on July 2020 with the theme “Sama-samang Pagsulong Tungo sa Katatagan sa Gitna ng Bagong Normal.”
PICE calls all its members to support government programs geared towards attaining and strengthening disaster resilience in the country while adapting the “new normal” caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The institute conducted various activities during the month-long celebration; though most will be done online due to the current health crisis such as webinars that focus on disaster resilience, among others.
It is recalled that Executive Order No. 29 signed on June 28, 2017 mandates the observance of NDRM throughout the country through the conduct of activities relative to building of disaster resilience covering the four thematic areas: prevention and mitigation, preparedness, response and rehabilitation and recovery.
