Disasters, natural or human-induced hit the country every now and then. This usually results in the tremendous destruction both to life and property. In the event that such eventualities occur, everybody must react properly so that lives can be saved and damage to properties be prevented or can be minimized. And because of this need, a functional and action-oriented disaster risk management planning workshop is very important.

The occurrence of disasters has become an important factor adversely affecting our economic development and social stability. However these natural disasters such as typhoons, earthquakes, storm surges and flood occur mainly because of our geographic location. Many of these emergency situations just cannot be avoided. Our government has to formulate plans in order to prevent emergencies, mitigate their destructive effects and ensure the provision of assistance to those in need, hence this workshop.
