Treñas to share resilience best practices at UN gab


Mayor Jerry Treñas is scheduled to share Iloilo City’s best practices on resiliency at the Asia-Pacific Partnership for Disaster Risk Reduction Forum from December 1 to 2.

The United Nations Office for DRR (UNDRR) Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific hosts the event.

“We will appreciate if you could bring the local action and resilience perspective into the discussion from your experiences as a Mayor. We look forward to your participation and a productive meeting,” Animesh Kumar, Officer-in-Charge, UNDRR Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific, wrote Treñas.

“To set the stage for consultation, a panel will be organized to consider lessons and good practices that DRR community can draw from the coronavirus disease pandemic,” added Kumar.

It will also suggest key regional priorities in Asia-Pacific for resilience building.
