The regular monthly meeting of Project Managers began on Friday, April 26 at 9:00 am CET. Current organizational issues and problems were presented.

LOOK: The University of the Cordilleras (UC), through UC ROS Executive Director and CALAMI-T Project Leader Engr. Nathaniel Vincent A. Lubrica with the Team, met with the Office of Civil Defense-Cordillera Administrative Region (OCD-CAR) today, 12 April 2024, to present and solicit inputs to the on-going implementation of the Project CALAMI-T.

Project CALAMI-T or Cordillera Administrative Landslide Monitoring Toolbox is a landslide mitigation research and development for BLISTT (Baguio City, La Trinidad, Itogon, Sablan, Tuba, Tublay). It aims to develop a landslide movement model toolbox that can predict landslides and provide information on the impact of rain-induced landslides on communities, infrastructure, and the environment. This is the Project 2 under the Program MULAT BLISTT: Modeling and Understanding Landslide Events in BLISTT.

Engr. Lubrica was able to explain the overview of the project and on how it will support DRRM measures in BLISTT areas to ensure safety during the rainy season. On the other hand, OCD-CAR was able to provide strategic inputs on how to operationalize the system and turn the information from the designated dashboard into proactive actions and policies particularly on pre-emptive evacuation and early warning system.

Meanwhile, OCD-CAR Regional Director and Cordillera RDRRMC Chairperson Albert A. Mogol commended the UC for this project and assured the Project Team of the support of OCD-CAR and the Cordillera RDRRMC for the promotion, operationalization, and institutionalization of the Project CALAMI-T. #ResiliencePH | #CivilDefensePH | #BidaAngHanda
