Exploring Development Support for Iloilo City

with our co-principal investigator of CCARPH Ms Jessica Bercilla

During the Embassy of Sweden’s fact-finding mission in Iloilo City last February 23, 2023, the National Resilience Council, together with Ms. Jessica Bercilla, co-principal investigator of Coastal Cities at Risk in the Philippines, and representatives from academic institutions and civil society organizations met with Swedish Ambassador to the Philippines, H.E Annika Thunborg. One of the agendas on the table being discussed was research and development in environmental sustainability and climate and disaster resilience.

The National Resilience Council has a robust partnership with Iloilo City to champion climate and disaster resilience, navigate science- and technology-based investments, and provide capacity development interventions on leadership, governance, and science and technology through the NRC’s Resilient Local Government Unit Program (RLGUP).
