1st ARISE Virtual Annual General Membership Meeting Focused On Business Resilience

ARISE Philippines discusses the need to focus on key priority areas in its advocacies on disaster risk reduction in its first virtual Annual General Membership Meeting.

The Mindanao Development Authority (MinDA) will conduct capability trainings on financial management and livelihood opportunities for earthquake victims in Davao Region and Cotabato through the MinDA Tienda project.

MinDA Secretary Emmanuel Piñol said the agency is developing a post-disaster intervention project that will help quake victims become self-reliant and independent from dole outs as they rebuild their lives following the series of earthquakes.

“The relief assistance and dole outs won’t last for long,” Piñol said.

He added that the aftermath of earthquakes will have longer effects on the lives of the individuals especially those who will be relocated and uprooted from their communities.

He said after the capability training on financial literacy and livelihood, they will be organized into associations and cooperatives.

Piñol added that MinDA TienDA outlets will be established by the first quarter of 2020 in all earthquake-affected areas which would be owned and managed by the quake victims.

“This new advocacy that MinDA is introducing could be the first of its kind in the history of post-disaster interventions in the country”, Pinol said.

The MinDA TienDA outlets will serve as monuments of the Filipino resilience and spirit of self-reliance amidst disasters and calamities.

MinDA will also seek the support of development partners in providing funds for capitalization for the operation of the MinDA TienDA outlets.

MinDA TienDA was first held in North Cotabato last month. It will move to Davao del Sur this month particularly in Bansalan town on Nov. 16 to 18 and in Digos City on Nov. 21 to 23. (PNA)
