DILG Sec. Año supported the creation of Department of Disaster Resilience

Año said in an interview with ABS-CBN’s Teleradyo that he favored the creation of the Department of Disaster Resilience, adding that its coordination with other related agencies shall be made clear.

When asked if he supported the creation of the said department, he said that it’s one of the priority bills that were being pushed by the President.

President Rodrigo Duterte on Sunday said that some members of Congress were resisting the creation of the Department of Disaster Resilience fearing that there would be “duplication of work” among other government agencies.

The bill creating the Department of Disaster Resilience had already been approved in the House of Representatives last September, but similar measures remained pending in the Senate.

In his previous State of the Nation Addresses, President Duterte had been encouraging Congress to pass a law that would create the Department of Disaster Resilience.

Meanwhile, President Duterte had directed the creation of a task force for government response on a series of typhoons.
