Organized by the Technology Application and Promotion Institute of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST-TAPI), HANDA PILIPINAS: Innovation in Disaster Risk Reduction and Response Expo will be held on 12-14 March 2020 at the World Trade Center Metro Manila, Pasay City.

Showcasing DOST’s technologies, innovations, inventions, and initiatives on disaster risk reduction and management (DRRM), the expo serves as the platform for the localization of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Science, Technology, and Innovation (STI) for disaster and climate resilience – an initiative led by the Department.

Moreover, it is aimed at raising awareness on the existing disaster risks and environmental issues that could pose harm and danger to humanity.

“We, at DOST, acknowledge the vulnerable condition of our country and our people to disaster risks as we truly care for everyone’s safety,” said DOST-TAPI Director Edgar I. Garcia.

Co-organized by the DOST-National Capital Region, the event will spread hope through the DOST initiatives to mitigate disaster risks for safer communities and to better the lives of the people, particularly on their readiness to risk and disasters.

Among the exhibitors are the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (DOST-PAGASA), Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (DOST-PHIVOLCS), Advanced Science and Technology Institute (DOST-ASTI), Philippine Nuclear Research Institute (DOST-PNRI), Industrial Technology Development Institute (DOST-ITDI), Food and Nutrition Research Institute (DOST-FNRI), and Philippine Council for Industry, Energy, and Emerging Technology Research and Development (DOST-PCIEERRD).

The expo is composed of technology exhibits and forum which will be participated by DRRM Officers from various government agencies intended to capacitate them on locally-developed technologies and to strengthen their partnership and coordination among stakeholders.

Entrance to the expo is FREE.
