Gov Uy seeks for Davao Oriental’s recovery after devastating flooding

Davao Oriental Governor Niño Uy has expressed his hope that various government agencies and the community will continue to help the province on its recovery following the recent devastating flooding triggered by continuous and heavy rainfall.

A composite team from the provincial government, the Office of the Civil Defense, and the local government units was deployed recently across the province to conduct a Post Disaster Needs Assessment (PDNA).

The assessment encompassed evaluating damage and losses across all sectors, including infrastructure, agriculture, education, social services, production, and cross-sectoral impacts, among others.

The provincial government said the findings from the PDNA will serve as the foundation for a rehabilitation and recovery plan to be developed during a workshop on March 20-22.

The PDNA conducted by the composite team will play a pivotal role in guiding the formulation of comprehensive recovery plans aimed at rebuilding infrastructure, restoring livelihoods, and enhancing the resilience of communities against future disasters.

Simultaneously, similar assessments are being conducted in the provinces of Davao de Oro and Davao del Norte.

Torrential rains and subsequent flooding have caused widespread devastation across various municipalities of Davao Oriental, inundating homes, severely damaging infrastructure, and submerging agricultural lands. These challenges significantly impact the livelihoods of affected communities.
