In observance of the National Disaster Resilience Month 2021, the Mines and Geosciences Bureau Regional Office No. III (MGB R3), through the Geosciences Division’s Vulnerability and Risk Assessment/Exposure Mapping Team, has successfully conducted an Information, Education and Communication Campaign on July 21-23, 2021 in the Municipalities of Candelaria, Masinloc, Sta. Cruz, and Palauig, all in the Province of Zambales to discuss the Role of the Mines and Geosciences Bureau in the following:

  1. Disaster Risk Reduction and Management through the Updating of 1:10,000 Scale Geohazards Map and Vulnerability and Risk Assessment Program
  2. Groundwater Resource and Vulnerability Assessment and Water Resources Management
  3. Assessment of Sanitary Landfill Sites and Solid Waste Management
  4. Coastal Vulnerability Assessment
  5. Mineral Resources Management
  6. Mine Safety, Environment and Social Development Programs
  7. Mine Management and Rehabilitation Programs

With the aim of informing the local executives and stakeholders on its activities and programs, MGB R3 works to strengthen its relationship with the public authorities through disaster risk governance in order to manage and reduce disaster and climate-related risks and to sufficiently inform the general public of the natural hazard risks they are exposed to and be able to take necessary precautions to reduce the number of deaths and damage caused by these.

The team was composed of geologists Chief Noel Lacadin, the champion of the team, Clarissa Villanueva, Ma. Lourdes Cruz, Ma. Teresa Coching, Carlo Salac, Louie Delos Angeles, mining engineers Julius Tabucao, Kathryll Francisco, Paul Justine Cuyugan (MGB Embedded-Masinloc), SEMS Jandel Plurad, and Atty. Mica Joy Fajardo. #NationalDisasterResilienceMonth2021 #MineResponsiblity
