EMI recently delivered the Pasig City Risk Profile and Atlas to Pasig City as part of the organization's implementation of the Pasig City Resilience to Earthquakes and Flood Project.
The City Risk Profile consists of disaster risk management information, physical information, population and demographics, social data, economic information, and current development and administration of the city. Along with it is the Pasig City Atlas which is a compendium of maps of Pasig City. It contains a series of maps on all hazard, vulnerability and risk information on the city, and pulls together relevant information about areas that are at risk to earthquake and flood related hazards such as expected damaged areas, building damage, liquefaction, shelter capabilities and critical facilities.
In addition, a Geographic Information System (GIS) database was also established and henceforth delivered along with the Profile and Atlas, to enable real-time access to the most accurate information on which to analyze and used in conjunction with the results of the Metro Manila Earthquake Impact Reduction Study. The GIS database is set at the barangay-level to provide a clear understanding of the current situation and resources of Pasig City.
The Pasig City Risk Profile and Atlas was finalized with the collaboration and cooperation of key Pasig City government officials, namely: Hon. Robert Eusebio, City Mayor; Atty. Reynaldo Dionisio, City Administrator; Engr. Jose Reyes, Project Director; Engr. Nicolas Cruz, Project Manager; Mr. Ritche Van C. Angeles, Project Coordinator; and Engr. Minwena Gamilla, Flood Control Officer. The resulting maps were also validated with national government agencies such as the Effective Flood Control System Metro Manila Development Authority (EFCOS-MMDA ) and the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS).
