NEDA Caraga prepared the Regional Rehabilitation and Recovery Program (RRP) from Severe Tropical Storm Odette on January 31, 2022.

The socioeconomic impacts caused by the typhoon prompted NEDA Caraga to develop the RRP being the Vice Chairperson of the Caraga Regional Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (RDRRMC) – Rehabilitation and Recovery Committee (DRRC).

The RRP provides a strategic rehabilitation and recovery framework which focuses on rebuilding affected communities, restoring livelihoods using the Build Back Better (BBB) principle, strengthening local resilience against future disasters, and harnessing conditions for future development.

The RRP is anchored on the overarching goal of safe, adaptive, disaster-resilient, healthy, and progressive communities across various natural and man-made hazards and risks through rehabilitation and recovery programs that are aligned with the Country’s disaster-risk reduction outcomes that the Philippine Development Plan.

In the RRP preparation, the Post-Disaster Needs Assessment (PDNA) report prepared by the Office of the Civil Defense Caraga served as the main reference. The PDNA includes Damage and Loss Assessment (DALA) which also served as basis in the RRP assessment. Other inputs include the Rapid Damage Assessment and Needs Analysis (RDANA) and situation reports.

The RRP covers the five provinces and the City of Butuan with emphasis on the severely affected provinces of  Surigao del Norte and Dinagat Islands. It focuses on tourism livelihood and business development, agriculture and fisheries, housing and settlement, social services, physical infrastructure, and the environment.

The RRP was developed in coordination with the Caraga Task Force Build Back Better chaired by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources Caraga, provincial, and city local government units in the Region, and key regional line agencies.
