South Cotabato rated ‘fully compliant’ in Gawad Kalasag disaster risk reduction assessment

The Provincial Government of South Cotabato has again bagged the Gawad KALASAG (Kalamidad at Sakuna Labanan, Sariling Galing ang Kaligtasan) Seal for local disaster risk reduction and management council and offices (LDRRMCOs).

In a post by the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC), South Cotabato was assessed as "fully compliant" in major areas such as "structure, competency, management systems, enabling policies, knowledge management, advocacy, partnership, and participation.”

The Gawad Kalasag Seal for LDRRMCOs is envisioned to serve as a performance assessment mechanism for all LGUs as they implement the mandatory provisions of RA 10121 (An Act Strengthening the Philippine DRRM System) on the institutionalization of their LDRRMCOs, including other NDRRMC issuances.

Other local government units in South Cotabato were also rated "Beyond Compliant" and "Fully Compliant" in this year's Gawad Kalasag:

- Municipality of Tupi
- Municipality of Surallah
- City of Koronadal


- Municipality of Lake Sebu
- Municipality of Norala
- Municipality of Polomolok
- Municipality of Sto. Nino
- Municipality of Tboli
