A-PAD PHILIPPINES is a platform, a framework for collaboration, cooperation and pooling of efforts and sharing of resources between humanitarian organizations, CSOs, private sector, and government units in delivering emergency response and early recovery services and in undertaking projects for rehabilitation, disaster risk reduction, and addressing the vulnerabilities of peoples and communities.

[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”]
Citizens’ Disaster Response Center (CDRC) takes on the secretariat functions of A-PAD-Philippines. As such, it would take responsibility for entering into bilateral and multilateral relationships with organizations, institutions, agencies, groups and individuals, under the platform of A-PAD Philippines, for the purpose of delivering emergency response and early recovery services and undertaking projects for rehabilitation, disaster risk reduction and addressing the vulnerabilities of peoples and communities.

CDRC in partnership with the Philippine Disaster Resilience Foundation (PDRF) jointly undertakes activities of A-PAD Philippines in the pursuit of strengthening multisectoral cooperation. PDRF is commissioned by the Government to solidify the commitment of private sector support in disaster aid programs, and in doing so, it draws agreement with humanitarian organizations, such as CDRC, to complement initiatives to address the issue of disaster resiliency in the country and the Asia Pacific region.

[av_heading tag=’h3′ padding=’6′ heading=’BACKGROUND’ color=” style=” custom_font=” size=” subheading_active=” subheading_size=’15’ custom_class=”][/av_heading]

[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”]
The Philippines, being situated in the Pacific typhoon belt, is a host to an average of 20 typhoons every year, five (5) of which are destructive.  It is also located along the Pacific Ring of Fire which makes the country vulnerable to frequent earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. In the 2015 World Risk Index, the Philippines ranked 3rd among all countries worldwide affected by climate- related impacts and its associated vulnerabilities.   During the last three years, thousands of lives and millions of pesos worth of infrastructure and properties were lost due to destructive typhoons and earthquakes.

With the increasing risks to disaster, both the government and non-government organizations are faced with overwhelming need to respond, rehabilitate, and capacitate affected areas.  Technical expertise and resources from the private sectors, however, remain untapped. The need to foster a stronger relationship with the private sector is now being emphasized, not only in disaster response, but more so in preparation and in building resilient communities. This has been underscored in the recently signed Sendai Framework of Agreement for Disaster Risk Reduction.

The need to establish a multi-sectoral platform is imperative, especially now that the private sectors are becoming more invested in DRR initiatives. A developed tripartite relationship among civil society organizations, the government, and private sectors can generate an increased efficiency and effectiveness in delivering needed services for the people and in building a disaster resilient nation.

Forging stronger ties with other organizations at the regional level offers opportunities for sharing DRRM knowledges and lessons from other countries’ experience. Regional collaborative centers, like A-PAD, can provide assistance in resource mobilization and capacity-building efforts between nations.
