THE Disaster Risk Reduction and Mitigation Council-10 will come out with a post disaster needs assessment-damage loss assessment (PDNA-DALA) report in the aftermath of Tropical Storm Sendong which hit the country last year.
The report will contain information on the impact of the disaster on people, infrastructure, value of the damages and losses, and long-term recovery needs and priorities.
PDNA is a government-led exercise which seeks to harmonize and centralize information to come up with a single, consolidated disaster report.
It is the first in the country and will serve as a model for other regions.
Needs identified in the PDNA that goes beyond the national capacity may be used as an evidence base for the mobilization of more international resources in support to recovery.
RDRRMC 10 Chairperson and Office of the Civil Defense 10 (OCD 10) Director Ana Cañeda said that the Sendong PDNA is on its final phase and will hopefully be ready in few days.
The sectoral summary tables and findings were presented to the members of the Regional Disaster Risk Reduction Council 10 yesterday during a workshop for correction, prioritization, and finally for approval.
