Leveraging technology toward community-level disaster resiliency

Private organizations, the academe, and local government units have accelerated the adoption of technology-based programs to develop community-based disaster resiliency capabilities.

Recently, Cebuana Lhuillier Foundation Inc., the corporate social responsibility arm of micro financial services giant Cebuana Lhuillier, held its second Barangay Resilience Exchange 2022 Online Conference to provide a platform for local communities to share best practices and connect community leaders, multi-sectoral groups, and private organizations for much-needed support in times of emergencies and natural disasters.

The conference was free and open to the public.

Bannering the theme “Ang Handang Barangay, Mahusay!” this year’s forum highlights the importance of collaboration and coordination among the government, private organizations, NGOs, and the community to survive and thrive in times of significant calamities.

“Cebuana Lhuillier has always prided itself on its commitment to helping Filipinos lead better lives — through our call towards financial inclusion or our CSR programs designed to empower Filipinos.

Disaster Resilience is one of our main thrusts as it impacts the safety, security, and livelihood of the very communities we serve. Through BRX2022 and with the help of our partner institutions, we hope that our barangay leaders will get valuable learnings that they can use in emergencies,” shares Jean Henri Lhuillier, president and CEO of Cebuana Lhuillier.
