MANILA, Philippines -- In the wake of recent floods and landslides in the Philippines, the government reconfirmed its commitment to make more than 60,000 schools and hospitals safer during disasters. At a ceremony to launch UNISDR “Making Cities Resilient: My City Is Getting Ready!” Campaign at East Rembo Elementary School in Makati City, 20 Metro Manila mayors also signed up in support of the campaign.

Sen. Loren Legarda, chairman of the Senate committee on climate change, committed a significant portion of her P200-million Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) under the 2011 budget bill for the construction of green and safe schools. “We want to build not just school buildings, but green schools that are disaster-resilient. We want these schools to be innovative and environment-friendly by putting up rainwater catch systems, by growing vegetable gardens, by using renewable energy and by setting up a recycling program, among others,” Legarda said.
