Stakeholders involved in the use of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Fund (NDRRMF) now have a ready reference for requesting and using it after the Office of Civil Defense launched the NDRRMF Guidebook (A Guide for Requesting Party and the Fund Administrators) in a simple ceremony held July 28, 2022, in Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City.
This document contains the action guide for project prioritization, preparation, processing, and endorsement under the NDRRMF.

The Guidebook has three parts: (I) General information on the NDRRMF; (II) Process for NDRRMC endorsement; and (III) Monitoring and Evaluation.
