The Mines and Geosciences Bureau-RXI (MGB-RXI) is conducting series of information dissemination meetings with the local government units on geohazard. The main objective is for the municipalities to highlight the importance of disaster risk reduction management plans and programs at the municipality level and awareness and appreciation of disaster risk reduction preparedness at the barangay level.
For the last three years, the MGB-RXI has been working on the 1:10K scale landslide and flooding geohazard maps of the different municipalities of the region. The said maps has already been reflected at the MGB-RXI website for easy public access. Geohazard mapping has been one of MGB’s main concerns as one of the government’s way of addressing climate change.
