About the project This project is funded by the United Nations World Food Programme (UNWFP), Philippines and

implemented by EMI. The main objective of the project is to map existing capacity development

activities for disaster risk reduction, identify key gaps in capacity and recommend specific areas of

intervention at the national level and in four (4) highly disaster-prone provinces in Luzon. The

outcome of this capacity needs assessment will inform UNWFP as it is preparing to implement a 12-

month project to enhance the capacity of communities and key government agencies on disaster

preparedness and response, which is funded by the United State Agency for International

Development (USAID)/Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA).
