This act has significant political support especially where DR R crosses over into climate change, an issue that is one of the five key areas for the president. And although there are separate institutions developing for climate change issues (the Climate Change Commission in particular) there is clear political will to join the dots between adaptation and DRR, with senior representation of all parties within the government’s National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC). Government agencies responsible for disaster preparedness, mitigation (prevention) and response have meanwhile all been open to extending their work to supporting those affected by conflict in Mindanao, which is a positive and rarely seen stance, and one which bodes well for broader and more comprehensive risk management beyond just t hat for disasters.
