WeatherPhilippines has partnered with Philippine Disaster Recovery Foundation (PDRF) to support the establishment of a Disaster Operations Center (DOC) specifically for the private sector.
The partnership focuses on utilizing WeatherPhilippines’s Weather 101 trainings to enhance the private sector’s capacity on disaster preparedness and providing the DOC with weather information.
The DOC is an inclusive private sector-driven initiative to aid government efforts in the four thematic areas of disaster risk reduction and management: preparedness & mitigation, response, relief, and rehabilitation. Its main goals are: 1) to empower individual businesses to promote greater awareness of risks; 2) support business continuity planning for risk resiliency; and 3) ensure coordination and collaboration among the private sector, public sector, and humanitarian organizations.
This partnership enables WeatherPhilippines to meet its objectives of integrating weather knowledge with business and empowering the private sector towards creating a #WeatherWiser Nation.
