QUEZON CITY, Dec. 30 - The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) member agencies met to prepare for TY Nina Post Disaster Needs Assessment, on December 29, at the NDRRMC Conference Room, Camp General Emilio Aguinaldo, Quezon City.

The meeting involved discussions of updates on assessed damage caused by the recent typhoon and preparations for the conduct of PDNA in provinces declared under the state of calamity.

Various National Government Agencies (NGA) reported on actions taken during the preparatory and response phase for TY Nina. OCD through the Rehabilitation and Recovery Management Service (RRMS) also presented consolidated reports of the PDNA conducted for TY Nona in December 2015, TY Ferdie in September 2016 and STY Lawin in October 2016.

The National Economic Development Authority (NEDA) shall take the lead in organizing the PDNA being the Council’s Vice-Chair for Rehabilitation and Recovery.

The result of the assessment will be used in crafting a Comprehensive Rehabilitation and Recovery Plan that will outline the restoration activities which will be undertaken in the affected communities.

Usec Jalad emphasized the importance of the conduct of PDNA. “This assessment would lead us to facilitate the effective delivery of services to the typhoon-affected communities”, said Usec Jalad. (NDRRMC) - See more at:
