The Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) XII through the Philippine Commission for Women (PCW) conducted a virtual training on Gender and Development (GAD) Concepts and Gender Mainstreaming as part of the Bureaus’ Women’s Month Celebration on March 30, 2022.

A total of 48 MGB XII personnel underwent the training activity with the PCW Resource Speaker Frances Noelle G. Escalera. Ms. Escalera discussed gender equality, gender concepts, gender biases and gender mainstreaming. She further elaborated the role of GAD to developmental initiatives in promoting social change and economic change.

Gender mainstreaming, as defined, is considered as the perspective of both male and female people during the design, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation elements of policies, regulatory measures, and spending programmes. It is a way of realizing gender equality.

Based on the Daily Weather Forecast from PAGASA issued at 4:00AM of April 13, 2022, SOCCSKSARGEN will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms due to localized thunderstorms. Severe thunderstorms may trigger landslides in elevated and mountainous areas and wide-spread flooding along low-lying areas adjacent to river systems. Flash floods are also possible along hilly to mountainous areas with narrow streams and rivers. Low-lying coastal municipalities and barangays within the region may experience inundation due to moderate to strong northeast to northwest winds with moderate to rough (1.2 to 2.8 meters) wave heights.

This Office encourages the Local Disaster Risk Reduction Management Offices (LDRRMOs) in the region to refer to the MGB-XII geohazard maps and information in identifying safe areas for evacuation and appropriate evacuation routes. Utilization of these maps and data to properly inform residents living in geologically hazardous areas to take precautionary measures is highly encouraged.
