When tropical storm Sedong hit the Philippines in December 2011, the Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP) through member ACF and with support from ECHO extended its presence in the country in order to fill important gaps in coordination and to provide technical support.
Tropical storm Sedong
From the very first stage of the emergency, the CaLP’s support was appropriate and effective in addressing the needs of stakeholders and filling gaps in coordination.
On Friday 16th December, 2011, tropical storm Washi, locally known as Sendong, brought 10 hours of torrential rains that triggered disastrous flash flooding across Mindanao, in the south of the Philippines.

The 24th round of peace talks between the Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GPH) and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) to end the decades old conflict was concluded on 11 January 2012 at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The joint statement of the talk spoke of constructive discussion on substantive issues between the parties. The talk apparently also formulated a draft road map towards a resolution of the Bangsamoro demand for an independent Muslim state.
Changing climate, changing disasters: pathways to integration (and accompanying policy brief) is an essential step-by-step guide for more joined-up thinking and action in disaster risk management, especially for sudden and slow-onset disasters exacerbated by climate change. It supports disaster risk practitioners to:
connect with colleagues in development and climate change adaptation by creating a shared ‘language’ of resilience
assess existing (or develop new) organisations, policies or programmes and build partner networks to fill capacity gaps
BANGKOK, 31 January 2012 - Mayors from the Mindanao region in the Philippines recently ravaged by Typhoon Sendong have been tasked to invest more in prevention and mitigation measures, by one of last year’s recipients of the prestigious Sasakawa Award.
The call was issued by disaster risk reduction (DRR) champion vice-Mayor Al Arquillano from San Francisco, in the Camotes Islands, who won the award for making his municipality safer against disasters.
