Monday, 25 March 2013 01:31

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) hosted the “4th Workshop and Joint Coordination Committee Meeting” on the initiatives under the Enhancement of Earthquake and Volcano Monitoring and Effective Utilization of Disaster Mitigation Information in the Philippines project on March 14, 2013 at the PHIVOLCS auditorium.

This project collaboration between PHIVOLCS and National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Prevention (NIED) and funded by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA)—Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST), is essentially to look at science and technology application for sustainable development or the SATREPS program, said Dr. Renato U. Solidum, PHIVOLCS Director.

“This will be a very good opportunity for all of us to share among our research colleagues what we have been doing,” added Director Solidum.

PHIVOLCS and Japan agencies’ personnel and project leaders presented in a session the partial accomplishments and outputs under the categories Earthquake and Tsunami Monitoring, Evaluation of Earthquake Generation Potential, Integrated Real-time Volcano Monitoring, Disaster Mitigation Information and Discussion on JFY2013 and 2014 Plan.

“Having already completed half of the project period…, the project will continue to do collaborative research that would benefit both the governments of the Philippines and Japan, not only in terms of research outputs but as well as capacity enhancement for both Japanese And Filipino researchers,” said Ms. Sachiko Takeda of JICA Philippine Office.

“We expect that the upgrading of systems will be totally completed and thus will result to obtaining and sharing of accurate and real time earthquake, tsunami and volcano information through the operationalization of the portal site,” she added.

There were 71 attendees from the said collaborating agencies, and Japan Meteorological Agency, Kyoto University, Kochi University, Nagoya University, Geographical Survey Institute of Japan, US Geological Survey, The National Center for Scientific Research, The Philippine Council for Industry, Energy and Emerging Technology Research and Development, Office of Civil Defense, International Technology Cooperation Unit, and Commission on Audit.

Representatives from the local government of Parañaque City underwent a capacity-building on Community-based Tsunami Early Warning System conducted by the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) on March 12-13, 2013 at the city’s Saint Andrew Cathedral’s Hall.

The Establishment of a Cost-Effective Local Tsunami Early Warning System for Selected High-Risk Coastal Communities of the Philippines (TeWS) project, where the said capacity-building falls under, mainly aims a) to develop, fabricate and install GSM-activated warning sirens in high-risk coastal communities; and b) to train and educate stakeholders on how to use the early warning system and how to respond properly during tsunami emergencies.

Under the project, PHIVOLCS and the Advanced Science and Technology Institute ASTI previously installed tsunami warning sirens along the city’s coastal barangays prone to hazards brought about by tsunamis.

PHIVOLCS gave an overview of the TeWS project and how the system works, and lectured on earthquake, tsunami and their hazards, and facilitated workshops on Basic Tsunami Hazards Map Reading, Preparing the Barangay Spot Map and Barangay Tsunami Evacuation Map and a Focus Group discussion on community preparedness for tsunami hazards. 

 The participants representing the Paranaque CDRRMC, DOST-NCR, OCD-NCR, and barangays Tambo, Don Galo, La Huerta, and San Dionisio presented and discussed their outputs on the Barangay Spot Map and Evacuation Map, and came up with recommendations to mobilize evacuation information and improve communication system for their own coastal barangays.

The press conference highlighted the midterm accomplishments and sharing of information that all resulted from the close collaboration between the Philippine and Japanese experts working under the JICA-JST Project entitled “Enhancement of the Earthquake and Volcano Monitoring and Effective Utilization of Disaster Mitigation Information in the Philippines.”

 Two new feature stories in manga or comics of the Filipino eyewitnesses’ accounts on the 11 March 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami was launched.

PHIVOLCS Director Renato U. Solidum, Jr. and Mr. Takahiro Sasaki of JICA Philippines together unveiled and introduced the two comics entitled “Ang Huling Sayonara (Ang Huling Paalam)” and “Daang Mapanganib”  to the event’s participants comprised of different tri-media outfits, JICA officers and PHIVOLCS personnel.
