DRRM contingency plan
Nilagdaan na ng mga miyembro ng Quezon City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council ang bagong balangkas na Contingency Plan for Earthquake and Floods. Ang Contingency Plan ay binuo sa isang workshop na pinangasiwaan ng Office of Civil Defense sa Cocoon Hotel. Bahagi ng plano ang mga hakbang na dapat gawin ng mga action agencies ng City Hall bago, habang at matapos maganap ang lindol o malakihang pagbaha. Ayon kay Mayor Herbert Bautista, magsisilbing gabay ang Contingency Plan sa walang humpay na paghahanda ng City Hall sa anumang sakuna na posibleng tumama sa Quezon City.

Prepared to respond
ActionAid, together with partner WeDpro and the Barangay (local authority) are building an evacuation centre to improve the communities' resilience to future disasters. It is being used as a model by the government and other NGOs for evacuation centres in the Philippines - the third most disaster-prone country in the world. The Philippines is a country highly prone to multiple disasters such as typhoons, storm surges, floods, landslides and volcanic eruptions. When Yolanda struck the Philippines in November 2013, over 4 million people were displaced across the Visayas region. In the absence of evacuation centers, most of the time during typhoons schools, churches and Barangay halls are designated as evacuation centres. In the Philippines, ActionAid is strengthening the capacities of the most vulnerable communities, especially women, to be able prepared to reduce risk and respond to disaster. ActionAid in partnership with Women Education, Development, Production and Research Organization (WeDpro) is supporting communities in Culasi municipal, Antique province to construct a gender, age and disability sensitive evacuation centre to reduce risk to future disasters. When typhoon Yolanda struck Culasi, around 40,537 people were displaced, 44 schools that served as evacuation centers where partially damaged and 18 schools were totally damaged and unusable. In February 2013, communities from 44 Barangays (villages) in Culasi prioritized the need to develop an evacuation centre during a participatory planning meeting to support them to reduce risk and people’s vulnerability to disasters. The centre is being constructed in tripartite agreement between ActionAid/Wedpro, the community and Camancijan Barangay/Culasi municipal government with support of Antique province. Camancijan Barangay procured the land worth £3,783 and is taking full responsibility for managing and maintaining the evacuation centre when it’s completed.

SUBU in Arakan
The rolling hills of Barangay Kinawayan, home to 216 families, mostly belonging to the ethnic tribe Manobo, is highly susceptible to landslides, according to the assessment made by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources-Mines and Geosciences Bureau. Early this year, Jimmy Montero, the Municipal Environment and Natural Resources Officer, sought the relocation of families whose houses were located on steep slopes in the five sitios considered as critical areas for landslides. To further limit the impact of disasters, the Arakan Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (Arakan MDRRMC) and the Barangay Kinawayan Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (Kinawayan BDRRMC) held a day-long communitywide contingency plan and disaster preparedness drill simulating a major storm in the northeastern part of Arakan, with oversight from the Provincial Government of North Cotabato and the Department of Interior and Local Government. The activity was initiated by ACF International through the project "Scale Up, Build Up: Strengthening local alliances and advocacy and empowering champions on disaster risk reduction (SUBU)" in collaboration with the Center for Disaster Preparedness. The project is implemented by a consortium of international non-government organizations led by ACF International, together with Care Nederland, Plan International, Christian Aid, Oxfam and Handicap International, with funding support from the Disaster Preparedness Program of the European Community Humanitarian Office (DIPECHO).

Capacity Strengthening on DRR and CCA in 5 Philippine LGUs and SUCs
The Capacity Strengthening of Five Provincial Governments and State Universities in Integrating Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Reduction in the Philippines is a part of the Australian Government's Public Sector Linkages Program (PSLP) that has aimed to contribute to project beneficiaries’ increased knowledge on disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation (CCA). It has intended to make vulnerable people in disaster-prone communities more active participants in undertaking community-managed projects and more hands-on on disaster prevention and risk management. It is a two-year program that has been implemented from February 2013 to April 2015 with the provinces of Albay, Bohol, Lanao del Norte, Misamis Oriental, and Quezon as partners in advancing collaborative measures on CCA and DRR. Six state universities and colleges (SUCs) have also participated in undertaking this program, they are the Bicol University, Bohol Island State University, Mindanao State University-Iligan Institute of Technology, Capitol University, Mindanao University of Science and Technology and the Southern Luzon State University.

UNDP Launches Cash-for-Work Programme for Destroyed Communities in the Philippines
25 November, Tacloban, Philippines -- The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) began debris removal projects last week by providing cash-for-work to villagers hit hard by typhoon Haiyan. Local communities started clearing rubble and medical waste, earning much needed income to get back on track after the destruction from the typhoon, while also easing access routes for humanitarian supplies. "The debris removal is an important part of the relief operation as streets without rubble are a precondition for aid distribution," said Haoliang Xu, UN Assistant Secretary-General and Director of UNDP's Regional Bureau for Asia and the Pacific during his visit to the storm ravaged city of Tacloban. Over the past weekend, an initial 180 men and women started removing rubble and medical waste in two hospitals, two schools and streets in three severely damaged neighborhoods (barangays) in Tacloban and in Palo through the UNDP organized cash-for-work programme. They received basic equipment and tools such as generators, shovels, and wheelbarrows to begin the early recovery process. With the assistance of the Australian aid agency, AusAID, 50 workers per day receive vaccinations against tetanus. "In addition to contributing to the humanitarian effort, the debris removal is also a critical component of economic recovery," added Haoliang Xu. "We're going to create 200,000 temporary jobs in debris removal in the most affected municipalities over the next six months." The benefits of debris removal cash-for-work programme include: · The cleared roads will allow easier access for humanitarian aid to reach isolated communities; · The cash-for-work employees selected in cooperation with local authorities and community leaders will bring income to 200,000 households; · The payments to workers will inject needed cash into the local economy; · The removed rubble and properly disposed waste will reduce the risk of disease. The debris removal and waste management are part of a US$ 20 million early recovery plan which has building resilience of these communities at its core. The programmes under the plan will help, among other things, rehabilitate local businesses, restore community infrastructure such as access roads and town (barangay) halls, and will contribute to restarting the provision of services of the local governments . "While meeting the immediate needs of the families who lost everything is of utmost importance right now, we must also work with communities to recover their lives and livelihoods, and build in resilience to withstand future super storms," added Haoliang Xu. "It is not just a matter of building back better, it is also a matter of building back sustainably." The cash-for-work and recovery programme builds on UNDP's extensive experience in reconstruction and rebuilding. For example, 16,000 people employed in UNDP's cash-for-work programme after typhoon Pablo hit the Philippines in 2012 removed half-a-million cubic meters of rubble. The funding for the new initiative so far comes from Japan, the UN Central Emergency Response Fund, and UNDP. To meet the urgent needs of the devastated communities, UNDP is seeking another US$ 10 million for recovery through the Typhoon Haiyan Action Plan launched on 13 November 2013 in Manila.
International Day for Disaster Reduction
Read more: 'Children, youth important in disaster risk reduction' (http://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=163956317029345) Children and young people's involvement in disaster risk reduction is at the center of this year's celebration of the International Day for Disaster Reduction. In Makati City, elementary and high school students participated in lectures and demos on first aid and fire prevention measures, as well as a poster-making contest, part of the city's Youth Summit on Disaster Risk Reduction. The IDDR aims to celebrate and raise awareness about reducing risks related to disasters and emergencies, both natural or man-made. This year, the United Nations focuses their celebration on the youth. The "Children's Charter," an action plan developed by children for children, was presented in a symposium in the afternoon. The charter focuses on the youth's roles and rights in disaster risk reduction. The whole-day event was spearheaded by the City Government of Makati and the UN International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UNISDR), and sponsored by various public and private organizations.

Mayor of Tacloban looks to nature for recovery
The Mayor of Tacloban Alfred Romualdez intends to take a leaf out of the Hyogo Framework for Action in his city's recovery plan and address one of the key drivers of local disaster risk. Degenerated local ecosystems are consistently associated with higher disaster risk and Mayor Romualdez has decided to work with rather than against nature as his city recovers from the devastation of Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda on 8 November 2013. The Mayor envisions nurturing a vibrant 'sea forest' of mangroves in Tacloban Bay to protect the city from future violent storms Here the Mayor explains to the Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Disaster Risk Reduction Margareta Wahlström how he intends to look beyond hard engineering solutions as the recovery gathers momentum.

What is SELECTIVE ENFORCEMENT? What does SELECTIVE ENFORCEMENT mean? SELECTIVE ENFORCEMENT meaning - SELECTIVE ENFORCEMENT definition - SELECTIVE ENFORCEMENT explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ In law, selective enforcement occurs when government officials such as police officers, prosecutors, or regulators exercise enforcement discretion, which is the power to choose whether or how to punish a person who has violated the law. The biased use of enforcement discretion, such as that based on racial prejudice or corruption, is usually considered a legal abuse and a threat to the rule of law. In some cases, selective enforcement may be desirable. For example, a verbal warning to a teenager may effectively alter their behavior without resorting to legal punishment and with the added benefit of reducing governmental legal costs. In other cases, selective enforcement may be inevitable. For example, it may be impractical for police officers to issue traffic tickets to every driver they observe exceeding the speed limit, so they may have no choice but to limit action to the most flagrant examples of reckless driving. In the United States federal system, the prosecutor has wide latitude in determining when, who, how, and even whether to prosecute for apparent violations of federal criminal law. The prosecutor's broad discretion in such areas as initiating or forgoing prosecutions, selecting or recommending specific charges, and terminating prosecutions by accepting guilty pleas has been recognized on numerous occasions by the courts. Wayte v. United States 470 U.S. 598 (1985) said: In our criminal justice system, the Government retains "broad discretion" as to whom to prosecute. This broad discretion rests largely on the recognition that the decision to prosecute is particularly ill-suited to judicial review. Such factors as the strength of the case, the prosecution's general deterrence value, the Government's enforcement priorities, and the case's relationship to the Government's overall enforcement plan are not readily susceptible to the kind of analysis the courts are competent to undertake. Yick Wo v. Hopkins (1886) was the first case where the United States Supreme Court ruled that a law that is race-neutral on its face, but is administered in a prejudicial manner, is an infringement of the Equal Protection Clause in the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. More recently this has become a topic of great discussion in the undocumented immigration debate in the United States, fueled by the "Morton Memo". The memo was intended to channel limited resources into prioritized pursuit of cases involving criminals and felons. The memo has been interpreted as the waiver of active prosecution of non-criminal illegal aliens and the exclusive focus on criminal illegal aliens.
