An earthquake known as the “Northwestern Luzon Earthquake” happened on 27 July 2022 at 8:43 AM. According to the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS), the earthquake magnitude was 7.0 with a 15 km depth. The highest intensity was intensity VII, based on the PHIVOLCS Earthquake Intensity Scale (PEIS), which is considered destructive. The said intensity was felt in the municipalities of Tayum, Bangued, Bucay, Bucloc, Danglas, Dolores, La Paz, Lagangilang, Licuan-Baay, Luba, Malibcong, Manabo, Peñuarrubia, Pilar, Sallapadan, and San Juan in the province of Abra. The number of aftershocks recorded as of 4 August 2022 was 2,492.
The UNDP Country Office formulated interventions for the municipality of Tayum guided by the UNDP recovery policy of ensuring that development perspectives are introduced as early as possible in response and recovery cycles, including approaching recovery as an opportunity to reset development efforts onto more resilient, green, and equitable pathways. By undertaking assessments of multiple risks and vulnerabilities that communities may be exposed to and that could hinder the recovery process and their future development will contribute to strengthen local government capacities to prevent and mitigate adverse impacts from future crises. Forward looking, the CO will implement long-term recovery interventions that build or strengthen resilience and capacities and that help to lay the foundations for sustainable recovery and for a speedy return to longer term development pathways of the municipality of Tayum.
In this regard, the CO intends to help the municipality of Tayum in building back better and manage residual risks by identifying risks and mitigation measures, promoting resilient recovery, and reduction of risks. These recovery strategies will be implemented through the identification of risk-informed settlements areas in the municipality by utilizing various recovery tools such as Housing and Building Damage Assessment (HBDA) of the UNDP and Climate and Disaster Risk Assesment (CDRA) in the Supplemental Guidelines on Mainstreaming Climate Change and Disaster Risks in the Comprehensive Land Use Plan.
The UNDP will assist the LGU in locating the safest settlement and institutional areas in Tayum by assessing all the risks within their municipality. To assist in the conduct of the initiatives, an Environmental Planner specializing CDRA and GIS under the CAPT will be engaged to formulate recovery strategy for the Municipality of Tayum in the Province of Abra.
