Pre-Disaster Recovery Planning Workshop: Intramuros 23 November 2018 (Friday) | 9AM-5PM (Manila City, Philippines)
ICOMOS Philippines and the University of Tokyo Graduate Program in Sustainability Science, in collaboration with the Intramuros Administration, will be holding a Pre-Disaster Recovery Planning Workshop for Intramuros on November 23 (Friday), from 9AM-5PM, at the Casa Blanca in Casa Manila Compound, San Luis Complex, Gen. Luna St., Intramuros, Manila City.
The workshop will be based on a slight amendment from the Ritsumeikan Model, which is currently taught in workshops and is considered to be the best practice of disaster workshops for heritage. Already in Phase 2, this workshop will involve the disaster imagination game for contextualizing the disaster; collaborative focus group discussion with stakeholders; and drafting the policy brief.
The Intramuros would be the second historic district in the Philippines, after Vigan, to have such a plan.
For those interested to join us, kindly send us a message at email@example.com for us to save you a seat.

The mission was held from 2 to 12 December 2013 to Manila to assess areas hit by the Bohol earthquake of 15 October 2013 as well as those areas affected by typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) of early November 2013.
The goal of the joint mission is to identify immediate needs and emergency safeguarding measures, as well as medium-term interventions that would be needed for rehabilitation and recovery. Other representatives from the cultural agencies were also present, with the Philippine National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) leading the mission.
