BRAZIL’S SÃO PAULO STATE RECOGNIZED BY UN FOR PIONEERING WORK IN BUILDING URBAN RESILIENCE TO DISASTERS Source: UNISDR GENEVA, 3 December 2014 — UNISDR’s Making Cities Resilient Campaign usually recognizes exceptional performance by cities and towns in disaster risk management but today it granted role model status to São Paulo State, Brazil, for its ability to mobilise 211 cities and towns in the populous state to join the Campaign. The four year old campaign now has over 2,400 cities and towns committed to basic principles of disaster management which protect citizens from a range of natural hazards through improved land use, urban planning and strong building codes. Margareta Wahlström, Head of the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction, said: “Brazil recognizes clearly that building urban resilience to disasters is vital for saving lives and avoiding disruption to basic services which all citizens depend on such as hospitals, schools, transport links, Food Security, water, energy and communi ...

Today I attended workshop on Disaster Risk Reduction at New Delhi after back from USA. I want to clarify on some spurious false news spread by some antagonistic elements including some media on Chinese President's Visit. 1. Home Ministry has no direct issue for MoU to be signed with China so only related Ministers participated during ceremony with President Xi Jinping. 2. There's no such order for North-East people to stay away from any place. In fact children from NE also interacted with Chinese first lady at Tagore School. We should understand that Tibetans across the country were emotionally charged & ready to go to any extent to protest during the visit. We must know that any incident with Chinese President due to security lapse could cause unthinkable damage to India. Hence unprecedented security was put up & those restrictions were put for Tibetans only. I morally support Tibetan sentiments for their autonomy. Normally, security measures for USA & Chinese President are unprecedented. 3. Some people ...

CONCEPCION TEACHER SUPER TYPHOON "HERO" Panay News, May 1, 2014 ILOILO – The Civil Service Commission (CSC) has chosen the public school teacher who lost his life rescuing children when super typhoon “Yolanda” struck as one of its Pamanang Lingkod Bayani (PLBi) awardees. PLBi is an annual CSC tribute to civilian public servants who displayed the characters of a bayani (hero) in the name of public service. Rogelio Lardera Sr., teacher at Concepcion Central School, died on November 8, 2013 after being hit by a broken tree branch which caused him to fall off the truck carrying volunteers and rescued residents during the onslaught of “Yolanda.” Prior to the incident, Lardera left his family after evacuating them in his parent’s house to fulfill his obligations as a Manaphag Quick Response Team volunteer. The PLBi has three components: Pamanang Parangal sa Lingkod Bayani, where the deceased civil servant is given recognition Pamanang Lingkod Bayani Iskolarsyip wherein three immediate family member ...
UNISDR: A RESILIENT PLANET, RESILIENT PEOPLE (From the Foreword of UNISDR's Annual Report for 2013 now available on line) The year 2013 was studded with many milestones which underscored the wisdom of those who designed and adopted the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA) in 2005. It has promoted an unprecedented set of clear priorities for what the world needs to get right when it comes to reducing exposure and vulnerability to multiplying threats from natural hazards. Some of the clearest evidence yet that mortality from weather-related disasters has been reduced over the last decade with pre-emptive evacuations and improvements in critical infrastructure such as public roads and housing, was presented by the Indian State of Odisha. It avoided major loss of life largely through the well-timed evacuation of almost one million people from the coastal areas hit by Cyclone Phailin in October 2013. A major focus for UNISDR over the last two years has been the consultations on a new post-2015 framework for disast ...

Senator Loren Legarda today renewed her call for more investments in renewable energy as part of a long-term solution to the growing power needs of the country and to mitigate the effects of environmental degradation and climate change. Legarda, the United Nations Champion for Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation for Asia-Pacific, made the call at the Clean Technology Congress 2014 organized by ThomasLloyd in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. “The aftermath of Haiyan was an eye-opener for us Filipinos. The devastation it caused made us realize that we need to climate- and disaster-proof our energy sector,” Legarda said. Typhoon Haiyan left more than 6,000 dead and nearly 2,000 missing. Damages and losses are estimated at P571.1 billion (equivalent to USD 12.9 billion).

Today, Tess Vistro of Apwld - Asia Pacific Forum on Women Law and Development APWLD & WMG presents on disaster risk reduction and climate change. "In the Philippines, Typhoon Haiyan cost 6000+ lives, 2000 missing, 27.000 injured, 5% GDP. Women in poverty most vulnerable to disasters e.g 80-90% death '91 flooding Bangladesh were women. Women and girls suffer increased sexual assaults after disaster, also now after Hayan. 9 out of 10 women suffered sexual assaults after Tsunami in India -also increased enforced child marriage. Eliminating gender discrimination must be central part of Disaster Risk Reduction goals & target. We need increased resilience of communities by transformation to agro-ecology (more resilient) & decentralized renewable energy."

The devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda highlights more than ever the need for effective Disaster Risk Reduction BEFORE natural hazards strike.
