ACCORD Commemorates 11 Years of Development and Humanitarian Projects
Assistance and Cooperation for Community Resilience and Development, Incorporated or ACCORD is one of four founding members of the Resilience and Innovation Learning Hub. As a non-profit civil society organization, ACCORD works in partnership with the least-served, most vulnerable communities in the Philippines on resilience-building activities. Working hand-and-hand with poor communities, people’s organizations, local governments, and other civil society organizations, ACCORD works to harmonize approaches to climate change adaptation, disaster risk reduction, and environmental protection. ACCORD has a long history of jointly developing and implementing projects together with CARE.
Last March 9 marked ACCORD’s 11th year of implementing development and humanitarian projects and programs across the country. Through conducting and implementing over 50 different projects, over 4 million Filipinos were reached in the past decade, a feat that contributed to strengthening communities across the nation, most especially those who belong to the most vulnerable sectors of society.
RILHUB’s reactivation in 2020 was greatly contributed to by partners and colleagues from ACCORD through the coordination and implementation of projects such as Partners for Resilience (PfR) and Moving Urban Poor Communities toward Resilience (MOVE UP). ACCORD has also contributed largely to the production of various knowledge and learning materials produced by RILHUB or available on the different RILHUB platforms.
On their official Facebook page, ACCORD shared a heartfelt, albeit short message of gratitude to who has been and is a part of their journey — be it from far-flung areas and communities, local agencies and government units, non-government organizations, and donors.
