Last December 18, 2015, stakeholders from the coastal communities in Tacloban City and the Regional offices of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources in Region 8 assembled to discuss the implementation of the Joint Memorandum Circular – 01, series of 2014, entitled Adoption of Hazard Zone Classification in Areas Affected by Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) and Providing Guidelines for Activities Therein.

Through the activity, the stakeholders agreed to consult people at the barangay level on how they can creatively teach and engage people in the roll out of the JMC; to consider the historical evidence of natural hazards that have occurred in the areas marked in the hazard maps to help people understand what the maps are for and to integrate the hazard map in the process of establishment of resettlement sites for fisherfolk.
