In celebration of the National Women's Month, OCD 10 holds a Regional Youth Training on Mainstreaming GAD into DRRM. Regional Director Ana Cañeda highlighted the importance of programs in government and private sector partners to be responsive in addressing gender concerns as aptly articulated in this year's National Women’s Month theme: Kapakanan ni Juana, Isama sa Agenda!

The gender lens needs to be introduced and developed among the youth especially in the planning of DRRM programs and activities in the communities towards a more gender sensitive society.

The participants are youth leaders from organizations duly recognized by the National Youth Commission: Iligan Youth Affairs Office, Kauswagan Youth Federation, Bridging Leaders for Sustainable Development, Barug Kabatanunan Movement Inc, Oro Youth Development Council, Pagasa Youth Association of the Philippines.
