In response to the need of an intensive Information, Education and Communication (IEC) campaign for the awareness and preparedness of the public on climate change adaptation and mitigation, the Mines and Geosciences Bureau Regional Office 8 has begun its series of IEC campaigns on Vulnerability Risk Assessment (VRA) to some municipalities of St. Bernard and San Juan in Southern Leyte on October 22-23, 2020.

IEC-VRA is a one-day training-workshop that includes lectures regarding the history of National Geohazard Mapping and Assessment Project (NGMAP), Vulnerability and Risk Assessment, the methodologies used for the conduct of the projects and the output produced. It likewise introduces and provides additional technical information to the Local Government Authorities on Risk Exposure Assessment (REA) for a more efficient mainstreaming of Disaster Risk Management and sustainable development in the Philippines.
