The Citizens’ Disaster Response Center (CDRC) welcomes the launching of the National Platform of Asia Pacific Alliance for Disaster Management in the Philippines. CDRC, as one of the five founding members of A-PAD, is ready to take on the responsibility and challenges of A-PAD Philippines. Disaster has become an issue of resiliency in the Philippines so it demands a collective response and responsibility from our society. The engagement among civil society organizations, private sectors, and the government in disaster management needs to be further developed. This is the only way to make a greater impact on the issue of disaster resiliency in the Philippines. A-PAD Philippines is a dynamic platform that facilitates cohesive collaboration and pooling of resources of different sectors.

With the guidance and leadership of the Asia Pacific Alliance for Disaster Management (A-PAD), A-PAD Philippines works towards the greater involvement of private sector in disaster management. The private sector must realize their capacity to complement the efforts of humanitarian organizations and the government in disaster mitigation.

Learning from the experiences of our neighbor countries in the Asia Pacific and the decades of experience of CDRC in disaster management, I strongly believe that A-PAD Philippines will thrive on mitigating the impacts of disasters as it intensifies cooperation, support, and connectedness across different sectors.

The Citizens’ Disaster Response Center (CDRC) is proud to undertake the A-PAD Philippines project. The fundamental objective of A-PAD Philippines is relatively similar to CDRC’s Community-Based Disaster Management. Both work on enhancing the capacity of people to respond to disaster through the concept of community-building. It is indeed essential to encourage all sectors to be a part of a community that contributes and assumes roles in disaster preparedness and response. CDRC believes that A-PAD Philippines can work on developing a pro-active role for private sectors. The framework of A-PAD is an effective disaster aid mechanism which allows all sector to participate and work for a common goal, alleviate the impact of disasters in the Philippines.

Seeing the progress of Asia Pacific Alliance for Disaster Management (A-PAD) in other member countries, I am honored that A-PAD entrusted CDRC for this project. With CDRC’s commitment and dedicated staff, I have high hopes for the success of A-PAD Philippines.
