COSCA Relief Bulletin No. 4 (4 September 2014)

AY2014-2015


Ms. July Nery, COSCA Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Specialist and Mr. Dwight Lobhoy, COSCA Project Community Organizer for Lian, Batangas will be conducting an assessment this Sept 2014 of the previous COSCA DRRM Intervention in Lian, Batangas. This will be in partnership with Mr. Albert Bautista, Head of the Lian Municipal DRRM Office. Aside from an evaluation of the previous engagement, the activity will also serve as take off point for the next level of DRRM endeavours to be conducted by COSCA in the municipality.

In addition, the center will continue with the process of drafting a DRRM Training Module for partner LGUs which started in 2011. By October 2014, another DRRM related assessment will be conducted in Bagac, Bataan.
