The importance of Community-based Disaster Risk Reduction and Management

SM DISASTER MANAGEMENT

A person's safety during calamities is mainly dependent on their community's disaster preparedness. No matter how ready they are for all possible catastrophic scenarios, every bit of preparation can go down the drain if their community cannot respond effectively to such events. 

 

It is why a community-based disaster risk reduction and management plan (CBDRRMP) is essential. It places the responsibility of being prepared for calamities and other emergencies on the community as a whole, ensuring that organizations, households and individuals can work together in making their community more resilient in the face of disaster.

CBDRRMP is important, especially for countries highly vulnerable to disasters, such as the Philippines. Situated within the Pacific Ring of Fire and typhoon belt, the Philippines is frequented by earthquakes and volcanic eruptions and typhoons respectively. The country ranked 9th in the world in terms of vulnerability to calamities in the 2020 World Risk Index. 

One of the most common events experienced by the Philippines is flooding, which underscores the importance of effective floodwater management. There are many ways that local government units are doing this. Efforts range from structural measures such as sizeable underground drainage systems, floodways, pumping stations, flood warning systems, and urban greening to non-structural measures such as minimizing plastic waste, a primary culprit in urban flooding.

With the country situated on five active fault lines, Filipinos must also prepare for earthquakes. It is why many buildings are equipped with earthquake-resistance features. Taking earthquake resilience in the country further are the periodic earthquake drills implemented at the national and organizational levels.

These are good examples of effective CBDRR, where both the authorities and the citizens work together to ensure the safety of life and property in their communities.

SM City Masinag has a rainwater collection tank that can store 17,681 cubic meters of water.

As a trusted and responsible developer of integrated properties, SM has always been committed to promoting Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM) in its communities, which is evident in many of its malls that employ infrastructure design centered on disaster resilience. SM allocates 10% of its capital expenditures to incorporate disaster-resilient features, of which installing water management design features is one of them.

SM DISASTER MANAGEMENT ILLUSTRATION

A few examples of these are SM City Marikina, elevated by several rows of concrete stilts to protect tenants and mall-goers during extreme floods. SM Mall of Asia was built with a storm surge barrier for added protection during storm surges, and several malls employ catchment tanks for recycling rainwater.

Across the country, there are 22 SM Malls that have rainwater collection tanks under the mall. All these malls combined can catch and store 79,880 cubic meters of rainwater, equivalent to 32 Olympic-sized swimming pools. 

“Wherever SM is, we try to help our communities become resilient to changing weather patterns,” explains Arch. Fides Garcia-Hsu, Vice President of SM Engineering, Design and Development.  “Nationwide, we have 22 malls equipped with rainwater catchment facilities that help rain water management to avoid flash floods for surrounding communities.”

SM City Olongapo Central's rainwater collection tank can hold up to 14,580 cubic meters of water.

Supporting these are several initiatives focused capacity-building for its stakeholders. It includes workshops & learning sessions on Disaster Risk Resilience Management and regular participation in the quarterly national simultaneous earthquake drills for its employees, and the annual Emergency Preparedness Forum for persons with disabilities and the elderly, two of the most vulnerable sectors of society during disasters.

Similarly, in line with its multi-stakeholder approach, SM Prime has also continuously built long-term partnerships with organizations that advocate for a disaster-resilient Philippines. It includes collaborations with ARISE-Philippines, the National Resilience Council, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council, the Office of Civil Defense, and the Bureau of Fire Protection, to name a few.

SM City San Mateo's rainwater collection tank can collect 10,800 cubic meters of potential floodwater.

GCash President and CEO honored as Master Innovator for Digital Transformation

Martha Sazon GCASH

GCash President and CEO Martha Sazon was recognized as a Master Innovator for Digital Transformation Innovation during the recent 2nd Annual Mansmith Innovation Awards and Summit. Mansmith and Fielders Inc. is an advocacy-based training and consultancy firm.

Sazon was recognized for helping create innovative digital products and services to improve the lives of Filipinos. Sazon joined other business leaders who were also recognized, namely Bounty Agro Ventures, Inc. President Ronald MascariƱas, Cebuana Lhuillier Group of Companies CEO Jean Henri Lhuillier, and Converge-ICT Chairman and CEO Dennis Uy.


During the summit, Sazon shared insights on how GCash was able to drive successful innovations by quickly responding to the demands of customers. She attributes GCash’s exponential growth to introducing relevant fintech products driven by the powerful insights from its customers.


“At GCash, we believe in innovation for good, driven by the real needs of our customers. We look to our customers as our guide, our North Star as we push for financial inclusion. Our contributions in the individual lives of our users add up to a snowball effect that creates meaningful waves of impact in the country,” said Sazon.


Meanwhile, in his opening remarks, Mansmith and Fielders Inc. Chairman and Chief Innovation Strategist Josiah Go acknowledged the hard work that comes along with innovating and thriving, especially during difficult times.


“The pathway to innovation is not easy. The path to creating something not just new but also successful and sustainable is no easy task. However, a little difficulty doesn't stop people from innovating. In fact, oftentimes, it becomes a driving force for innovation,” he said.

To address the pain points of the unbanked and underserved Filipinos, GCash introduced breakthrough financial services such as GSave for a savings account, GInvest for easy access to local and global funds for as local as P50, and GInsure for insurance in times of emergencies. 


“At GCash, we're changing the mindset that financial services are only for the wealthy by making our digital products more accessible, affordable, and easy to understand,” said Sazon.


Sazon added that GCash wants to help address another concern of unbanked Filipinos – that of having money readily available whenever they need it, especially during emergencies. GCash is helping address this with products such as GCredit, GLoan, and GGives. GCredit has already provided more than 1 million users with accessible credit lines while GLoan, as a quick cash loan, offers affordable and fair rates versus informal lenders. GGives is a buy now, pay later proposition to provide credit to more than 2 percent of the population with accessible installment options. 


Aside from these innovations, GCash has also been bringing its services to the grassroots level through microenterprises, which Sazon referred to as the “key to reaching financial inclusion.” which is the company’s vision. With GCash Pera Outlet, sari-sari stores act as hubs for GCash services for their community while helping the small store owners earn extra income and livelihood opportunities.


Sazon also noted that the company has been beefing up its financial literacy campaigns while educating users how GCash services can help them manage their finances and eventually help them achieve financial freedom.


With GCash’s innovative services and innovators like Sazon, GCash is moving closer to achieving its vision of “Finance for All.”

Confidential N2D and C2D VMs with 3rd Gen AMD EPYC processors:

  • Enable AMD SEV, which keeps VM memory encrypted with a dedicated per-VM instance key that is generated and managed by the AMD Security Processor
  • The ability to run workloads without dramatically impacting performance compared to standard VMs, all while enabling robust protection capabilities against attacks originating in other VMs, on the same physical host, as well as from the hypervisor itself.
  • One-click implementation of Confidential Computing on 3rd Gen EPYC CPU powered N2D and C2D VMs with no code changes
  • Simple upgrading to Confidential N2D VMs with the latest hardware by simply selecting “AMD Milan or later” as the CPU platform.
