MOVE UP – DILG LGA Executive Webinars (Part 2): Presentation Decks on The Urban Resilience Model, Shock-Responsive Social Protection, and the BREADY Project

The Moving Urban Poor Communities in Mindanao towards Resilience Project (MOVE UP Mindanao) is an urban resilience project which aims to contribute to the resilience building of urban poor populations to withstand and manage the impact of disasters. It aims to strengthen urban disaster preparedness, response, and management capacity of the national, sub-national, and local government units (LGUs), and other stakeholders through the adaption and/or replication of tested urban resilience strategies. 

MOVE UP- Mindanao project advocates, among others, the strengthening of shock responsive social protection mechanisms to help reduce vulnerability and support timely recovery in the event of shocks and stresses.  

In partnership with the Department of Interior and Local Government – Local Government  Academy, the project aims to share its lessons learned, good practices, and innovations gathered and tested from its experience in working with urban poor communities to contribute to the large-scale resilience-building effort. 

MOVE UP- Mindanao is implemented by a consortium of international non-government organizations which includes Plan International Philippines, Action Against Hunger, and  CARE Philippines with its local partner ACCORD Inc. Funded by the European Civil  Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO), the project is currently implementing in  9 LGUs in Mindanao.



Effective social protection is critical to reduce vulnerability and support timely recovery.  However, to date, national systems have been too underdeveloped or not flexible enough to allow them to expand before or during emergencies.  

This webinar will discuss the basic concepts of shock-responsive social protection and the  MOVE UP projects strategies in its goal to help LGUs strengthen their social protection mechanisms to respond to and recover from shocks and stresses. 

This webinar will also share some good practices at the local level in implementing anticipatory action strategies in the context of disaster risk reduction and management.

This session was aimed at the following objectives:

1. Provide an overview on the basic concepts of shock-responsive social protection; and

2. Share good practices in implementing Disaster Risk Reduction and Management strategies in the context of social protection from local experiences.
