MANILA, Philippines – Responders, decision-makers, and advocates of disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation (DRR-CCA) will gather from July 7 to 8 for the Agos Summit on Disaster Preparedeness at the Samsung Hall of the SM Aura Mall in Taguig City.

The summit builds on the work of Agos, powered by eBayanihan, a disaster information management platform that amplifies and crowdsources critical information before, during, and after disasters. Together with its partner agencies, organizations, and volunteers, Agos enables disaster managers, local leaders, and responders to make quick life-saving decisions.

The summit, which is organized by Rappler’s civic engagement arm MovePH, aims to highlight best practices and innovations in DRR-CCA. The Summit also aims to train responders and volunteers in the use of social media, technology, and crowdsourcing in times of crisis.
