DRN 2017 Vol. XXXV No. 2: DRRM's Design and Implementation Need to Be Beefed Up

The Philippine Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM) Act of 2010, although substantive, is poorly implemented. This, according to a PIDS study, may be attributed to, among others, the weak coordination and cooperation between DRRM agencies, the latter's seeming lack of focus on their DRRM functions as these compete with their primary mandates, and the lack of compliance of some local government units with the DRRM Act as far as implementation of their DRRM plans is concerned. Among its recommendations in order for the country to reap the gains of the law are to revisit the implementation and funding guidelines of the DRRM Plan and to intensify interagency coordination and cooperation.

This issue also features the PIDS book, "Unintended Consequences: The Folly of Uncritical Thinking", which highlights the inadvertent negative results of policies and programs arising from the lack of rigorous analyses of their potential effects prior to their implementation. The PIDS studies on the government procurement law and the Philippine telecommunication sector complete the issue.
