The Proceedings report documents the discussion and highlights of the Megacities Forum on Building Urban Resilience focusing on the Philippine Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM) Act of 2010 (or Republic Act 10121). The Republic Act 10121, in the context of global DRR, is relevant as it emphasizes the role of local government units (LGU) as key actors in DRRM. Four years after the adoption of the law, it is relevant to discuss the accomplishments, issues, and challenges related to its implementation. Results of the self-assessment exercise using the Disaster Risk Resiliency Indicators (DRRI) tool are also included in the report.
