The National Resilience Council (NRC) is a science and technology-based public-private partnership that supports government, communities, the academe, and the private sector in advancing the intersecting goals of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, Sustainable Development Goals, the Paris Climate Agreement, the New Urban Agenda, and the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR)’s Making Cities Resilient Campaign. Driven by the convergence of the visions of Ambassador Roberto R. Romulo and Mr. Hans T. Sy, of SM Prime Holdings, Inc., it is co-chaired by Secretary Delfin Lorenzana of the Department of National Defense and Mr. Sy. NRC has four vice-chairpersons representing government, the private sector, academia, and civil society. This structure facilitates the institutionalization of partnerships between various sectors. It likewise ensures the identification of shared values and the co-creation of strategic solutions to demand-driven resilience challenges. The NRC is principally supported by the Philippines’ leading conglomerates; thus, it is also the lead implementing partner of the UNDRR’s Alliance for Disaster Resilient Societies (ARISE) Philippines.
