Systems and Training Specialist for the Implementation of DevLIVE+ in Tuao, Cagayan
Recovery and Resilience Building in the Philippines Project
B. Project Description
Typhoon Vamco (Ulysses) wreaked havoc across Luzon on 11-12 November 2020 with more than three million people from 5,594 barangays in eight regions affected, with 283,656 people seeking refuge in 2,205 evacuation centers while 158,926 people are in a home-based setting. The already swollen Cagayan River in northern Luzon rose quickly, inundating low-lying communities when authorities released water from Magat Dam, one of the largest in the country, to prevent the dam from reaching its critical spilling level. At least 1.1 million people were affected by the flooding in the two provinces of Isabela and Cagayan including Tuguegarao City, which local authorities said were the worst in the region in four decades.
Through the assistance that UNDP CO received from Crisis Bureau, the UNDP CO immediately deployed Climate Action Staff to do initial assessments and connect with the Province of Cagayan. It was agreed then with the Province of Cagayan the following support to be provided by UNDP: i) the conduct of recovery planning activities ii) the formulation of a long-term rehabilitation plan of government, iii) identification of specific entry points for support to livelihood and resource mobilization and iv) demonstrate the use of the DevLIVE+ platform.
Originally designed to assess risks and exposure of households to natural hazards, the DevLIVE+ was further enhanced and expanded to collect data on non-residential structures i.e. commercial, institutional, and industrial, and agricultural production areas i.e. livestock, poultry, and fishing which are significant information to the exposure database of an LGU. The DevLIVE+ is implemented for a detailed evaluation of potential risks in an automated manner, which would significantly enhance the development of future local plans and programs.
UNDP will be providing technical support on mapping available data solution and databases of the Municipality of Tuao, Cagayan, nominated by the Province of Cagayan as the demonstration site, and recommend enhancements for possible system integration. The assistance will also be extended on demonstrating how the existing information from the LGU’s local database could be visualized using the DevLIVE+ dashboards, upon identification of integration points.
UNDP will also provide technical assistance at key stages of the implementation from data collection, validation to management, through training, mentoring, and coaching. This intensive training design is adopted to instill the processes within the LGUs for future updating of their data, to ensure the sustainability of the system, and to promote common data among departments.
To achieve the aforesaid support to the local government of Tuao, Cagayan, UNDP CO requires the services of a qualified Systems and Training Specialist.
