Task Force, LGUs pakikilusin para sa El Niño

MANILA, Philippines – TINIYAK ni National Defense Secretary Gilberto Teodoro Jr. kay Pangulong Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. na aktibong pakikilusin ang Task Force El Niño at local disaster risk reduction and management councils (DRRMCs) para pagaanin ang epekto ng weather phenomenon.

Sa idinaos na second task force meeting sa pangunguna ni Teodoro, chairman ng task force, sa Camp Aguinaldo, tiniyak at binigyang-diin ni  Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Undersecretary Marlo Iringan na inalerto na ang mga  regional directors at maging ang lokal na DRRMC para sa pagtugon sa El Niño.

“Our local chief executives and DRRMCs are in the best position to determine the needs of their communities during crisis and emergencies,” ani Teodoro.

“Effectively addressing the effects of El Niño across the country surely requires all hands on deck,” aniya pa rin.

Ito’y matapos na sumang-ayon ang DILG sa posisyon ni Teodoro na ihanay ang local government units (LGUs) at maging ang provincial at city-level DRRMC sa whole-of-government approach ni Pangulong Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. para pagaanin at pangasiwaan ang epekto ng El Niño.

“As in any disaster or calamity, the provincial, city, municipal and barangay-level DRRMCs should take the lead and get involved,” ang sinabi ni Teodoro kay Iringan sa task force meeting noong Pebrero 12.

Winika pa ni Teodoro na gagawing simple at madali ang gagawing pagtugon ng national government sa weather phenomenon, sabay sabing gusto ng Pangulo na mag-pokus sa “systematic, holistic, and results-driven interventions.”

“We should all cooperate and coordinate as we deal with the effects of and concerns on El Niño. We do not need a new structure. What we need is to breathe fresh energy and a new lease on life on the existing networks and links that we have all access to,” ayon sa Kalihim.

“At the regional- and local government-levels, we can reignite old connections of collaboration. We have done this in handling past disasters and calamities. The provincial DRRMCs and city DRRMCs should restart reconnecting,” dagdag na wika nito. Kris Jose
