The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) is the National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHS) agency of the Philippines mandated to provide protection against natural calamities and to insure the safety, well-being and economic security of all the people, and for the promotion of national progress by undertaking scientific and technological services in meteorology, hydrology, climatology, astronomy and other geophysical sciences. PAGASA now serves as one of the Scientific and Technological Services Institutes of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST).
The Department is the primary agency responsible for the conservation, management, development, and proper use of the country’s environment and natural resources, specifically forest and grazing lands, mineral resources, including those in reservation and watershed areas, and lands of the public domain, as well as the licensing and regulation of all natural resources as may be provided for by law in order to ensure equitable sharing of the benefits derived therefrom for the welfare of the present and future generations of Filipinos.
The Climate Change Service of DENR facilitates the effective and efficient integration and implementation of the Risk Resiliency Program and Risk Resiliency and Sustainability Program, among others.
Much progress is being made to deploy early warning systems in vulnerable countries to detect, monitor, and forecast natural disasters. However, knowing early that a disaster is coming is only the first stage in protecting lives and livelihoods.
With modern technology it is possible to connect the dots across the incident lifecycle in order to prepare the community; coordinate the incident response operation and disseminate critical information to those impacted using targeted multi-channel population alerting, ensuring that first responders and people at risk receive early and continual communications before, during and after a major incident.
In this session we will illustrate with examples from recent storms and wildfires, how Everbridge solutions are helping to keep people safe and build resilient communities across APAC and the wider world.
