Iloilo City Gets Geographic Information System Workstation

Iloilo City Government got a Geographic Information System (GIS) workstation from United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and CRS Philippines’ Climate Resilient Cities Project on Jan. 10.

“Climate change has changed a lot of our priorities in the city and we will continue to train our people to be more prepared,” stressed Mayor Jerry Treñas.

Led by the Philippine Disaster Relief Foundation, USAID and CRS Philippines support data-driven disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation (DRR-CCA) planning in the metro. This is coupled with a series of upcoming CRC training workshops on enhancing climate data which will contribute to accelerating data-driven DRR-CCA planning.

Following the turnover, ceremony was the commitment signing on the Climate Change Competency Assessment Framework (3CAF) by the Iloilo City Technical Working Group (CTWG). The signing demonstrated strong commitment from City Government in driving the Climate Resilient Cities project forward, and to building the resilience of its citizens to climate impacts.
