Keywords:DRRM, Universities, Colleges, LGU
This research was conducted to determine the disaster risk reduction management capabilities of the State Universities and Colleges and Local Government Units in the Province of Iloilo and formulate a development program based on the result. A total of 160 respondents were involved in this study. In gathering the needed data, a valid and reliable researcher-made instrument in the form of a questionnaire checklist was utilized considering all the variables included in the study. The data gathered were analyzed using the mean, the-Kruskal Wallis and Mann-Whitney set at a .05 alpha level of significance. The findings revealed that the disaster preparedness, disaster response, prevention and mitigation, and rehabilitation and recovery of the four State Universities and Colleges as a whole and classified as an institution was “very satisfactory” while the Local Government Units as a whole and classified as to location was “excellent.” Significant differences existed in the disaster preparedness, disaster response, prevention, mitigation and rehabilitation and recovery capability levels of the SUCs classified as institutions and LGUs classified as to location. The State Universities and Colleges and Local Government Units’ capability levels in disaster preparedness and disaster response were significantly different while no significant differences in prevention and mitigation and rehabilitation and recovery were found. The challenges encountered by residents during disasters were inadequate.
