CAPTION: This is where the Operations and Warning Division receives real-time updates on rainfall, wind speed and other weather indicators. If an extreme weather event is expected, such as flooding or a typhoon, the team working here is equipped to respond immediately and coordinate with different departments. Mark Bocalbos of the Surveillance and Control Department, pictured here, feels that the early warning and emergency response system in Makati City is very effective, and he emphasises that incorporating future climate change projections into planning has already started. With the creation of a Climate Change Resilience Network that spans Metro Manila, ACCCRN hopes to provide Makati City with a channel for sharing its knowledge on early warning and response with other cities across the metropolitan area. LOCATION: Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office, Makati, Philippines. INDIVIDUAL(S) PHOTOGRAPHED: Mark William Bocalbos.
