About Task Force Ruby

TASK FORCE RUBY: Activating CODE-NGO's Regional DRRM Coordinating Hubs

 

Last Friday, Dec 5, 2014, during the CODE-NGO Social Development Celebration in Davao City, CODE-NGO held a meeting with partners to activate the DRR Coordination Hub in anticipation of the impacts of Typhoon "Ruby". The meeting was attended by representatives of CODE-NGO member networks who have operations in the identified path of Typhoon Ruby: Agri-Aqua Development Coalition, PAKISAMA and PhilDHRRA for Northern Mindanao, Eastern Visayas Network of NGOs and Pos (EVNET) for Region 8, Western Visayas Network of Social Development NGOs (WEVNET) for Region 6, Central Visayas Network of NGOs (CenVISNET) for Region 7, Partnership of Philippine Support Service Agencies (PhilSSA) for MIMAROPA,  and Coalition for Bicol Development (CBD) for Region 5. The identified areas are also those that were devastated by the Super Typhoon Yolanda more than a year ago and are currently being assisted by the CODE-NGO member networks in the rehabilitation and recovery phase.

The member-networks in attendance agreed to become part of the coordination hub dubbed as “Task Force Ruby” which will be CODE-NGO’s platform for sharing of information and latest updates regarding Typhoon Ruby and do an initial damage assessment after the storm has passed. A Facebook group was established which serves as the repository of information and the members have been updating and exchanging information and data to monitor the status of typhoon impacts on the ground. A Community Damage and Needs Assessment (CDANA) template has also been distributed. Once filled-up by partners, these would be processed by the CODE-NGO National Secretariat thru the ACED2 Project and the results will be used as basis for immediate intervention.

CSOs rally behind a more peaceful and resilient PH in Social Development Celebration 2014

 

Nearly 200 civil society organization (CSO) leaders are expected to convene this coming December 3-5, 2014 at the annual Kasali Ka, Sumali Ka! Social Development Celebration (SDC) of the Caucus of Development NGO Networks (CODE-NGO) to be held at the SMX Convention Centre, SM Lanang, Davao City.

Co-hosted by the Mindanao Coalition of Development NGO Networks (MINCODE), this year's SDC will also serve as the 18th General Assembly of the CODE-NGO's 12 member networks (MNs) which represent more than 2,000 development NGOs, people's organizations, and cooperatives all over the Philippines.

In line with the upcoming theme of the celebration, "From South to North and from Bottom Up: CSOs Shaping Peace and Resilience", the SDC will focus on the role of CSOs in promoting peace in Mindanao and disaster-preparedness around the country.  This year’s theme illustrates that CODE-NGO’s work as a national coalition of CSOs are grounded on and arising from the initiatives and lessons of its members at the local levels.  Its focus on the twin issues of peace and resilience are timely, now that the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro (CAB) has been signed and the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) is being deliberated upon in Congress, and it has been a year after typhoon Yolanda, when lessons should have informed and should be informing Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM) efforts of various stakeholders.

SDC 2014


Kasali Ka, Sumali Ka! Social Development Celebration 2014 and CODE-NGO’s 18th General Assembly

 

The Caucus of Development NGO Networks (CODE-NGO) will hold its annual Kasali Ka, Sumali Ka! Social Development Celebration (SDC) and 18th General Assembly on December 3-5, 2014 at the SMX Convention Centre, SM Lanang, Davao City. This year’s SDC will be co-hosted by the Mindanao Coalition of Development NGO Networks (MINCODE), one of the 12 member networks of CODE-NGO.

Themed, From South to North and From Bottom Up: CSOs Shaping Peace and Resilience”, the event highlights the development initiatives of civil society organizations (CSOs) across the Philippines in building peace and disaster-resilient communities. These two issues are timely, now that the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro (CAB) has been signed and the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) is being deliberated upon in Congress, and a year after typhoon Yolanda when lessons should have informed and should be informing Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM) efforts of various stakeholders. It will also be a good opportunity for CSOs to take stock of the status of their constructive engagement with government, at a time when government reform efforts (e.g. the bottom-up budgeting (BUB) or grassroots participatory budgeting (GPB) process) are being challenged and criticized by a few legislators and CSOs locally, while being acknowledged and supported by other local CSOs and being recognized globally, receiving a Gold Award (3rd prize) from the Open Government Partnership Awards last September 2014.
