Introduction :

Country: Philippines


Description of the Assignment: 

The Philippines is one of the fastest growing economies in Southeast Asia and plays an important role in the stability of the region. Environmental degradation and more frequent climatic events are likely to be key political, economic, and security disrupters over the longer term. Humanitarian crises can also undermine growth, reverse development gains, increase poverty, and cause instability that can last for decades. 

To address this challenge, the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) through the support of the Government of Australia Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade in the Philippines (DFAT), is implementing the Strengthening Institutions and Empowering Localities Against Disasters and Climate Change (SHIELD) Program. Australia invested AUD18 million in SHIELD.

The goal of the SHIELD Program is to make all people in target communities safer and more resilient to the impacts of natural hazard events and climate change. This will be realized by achieving three interdependent components:

Component 1: Government, private sector, and civil society stakeholders in targeted local government units (LGUs) are collaborating to unlock funding and implementing informed and inclusive resilience actions

Component 2: Relevant national government agencies (NGAs) are prioritizing action on local climate and disaster resilience

Component 3: Philippine scientific agencies are producing tailored and accessible information for local resilience action

SHIELD will be implemented in in 11 provinces, Metro Manila, and the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM).
