WeatherPhilippines commits to partner with the Philippine Disaster Recovery Foundation (PDRF) to strengthen the role of business in building the nation’s disaster preparedness, response and resiliency

The partnership focuses on using WPF's weather 101 trainings to enhance the private sector’s capacity on disaster preparedness, and to provide weather information for the Disaster Operations Center.

The Disaster Operations Center is an inclusive private-sector driven initiative that aids government efforts in the four thematic areas of disaster risk reduction and management: preparedness & mitigation, response, relief and rehabilitation. The DOC’s 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.
