Good day!

The UP Resilience Institute (UP RI) <https://resilience.up.edu.ph/> was
formed to scale up and transform the previous multidisciplinary initiatives
in DRRM by UP and its national and regional partners into interdisciplinary
or transdisciplinary research or creative work, extension service, and
training, both for added capacity building within UP and capacity building
within the larger society. The UP NOAH Center
<http://center.noah.up.edu.ph/>, as a core component of the UP RI, was
established in the University of the Philippines to conduct research,
development and extension services on natural hazards, disaster risk
reduction and climate change actions. The core of UP NOAH’s work is
producing freely accessible, accurate, reliable, and relevant scientific
disaster data.

The UP Resilient Campuses Project by the UP RI aims to create disaster
management contingency plans to address the UP campuses’ vulnerability to
natural hazards. It intends to take off from previous and existing plans
and improve them by using the latest technology and the best methodologies
to develop better strategies specific to the higher education units of the
University of the Philippines campuses. This new and improved plan will
cover the entire scope disaster risk management, from the identification of
the risks all the way to recovering from disasters. It also aims to develop
strategies to become resilient against the adverse impacts of geological
and climate related natural hazards.

With this in mind, we would like to ask for assistance from
OpenStreetMap-Philippines to map the various communities in the various UP
campuses using OpenStreetMap (OSM). As such, it is helpful in identifying
points of interest, critical facilities (e.g. health centers, schools, town
halls), buildings, and other infrastructures in the community that help
identify areas vulnerable to disasters using risk and exposure details
(number of affected houses, commercial buildings, evacuation centers).

The task numbers are as follows:

UP Diliman 3436

UP Manila School of Health Sciences, Aurora 3794

UP Diliman Extension Program in Pampanga 3434

UP Baguio 3435

UP Bonifacio Global City 3437

UP Manila 3438

UP Los Baños 3457

UP Open University – Headquarters 3790

UP Visayas, Miag-ao 3470

UP Visayas, Iloilo City 3460

UP Cebu 3461

UP Cebu South Road Properties (Professional Schools) 3469

UP Visayas, Tacloban College 3471

UP Manila School of Health Sciences, Leyte 3472

UP Mindanao 3791

UP Manila School of Health Sciences, South Cotabato 3792

UP Alabang 3793

We would also be happy to provide training to those who are willing to help
in this effort to achieve this goal of disaster-resilient UP campuses.

Please e-mail us if you have any other questions regarding the project.
Thank you.
