PROJECT #Maghanda: Meteorological and Geological Hazard Advisories, Warnings and Notifications for Decisive Action is a collaborative initiative by three Department of Science and Technology agencies — the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology, and the Science and Technology Information Institute.

In cooperation with the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) and its training arm, the Local Government Academy (DILG-LGA), the project aims to provide a clearer understanding of warning messages to have better response action among local government units (LGUs) and the media.

The results of this survey will aid the development of capacity-building activities and materials under Project #Maghanda including learning sessions, modules, manuals and other knowledge products. Rest assured that data generated from this survey will be handled with utmost care and confidentiality guided by the Data Privacy Act of 2012, its implementing rules and regulations, and other relevant policies, including issuances of the National Privacy Commission.

The TNA form is accessible through this link: Project #Maghanda Training Needs Assessment (TNA) Form.

Responses should be in by April 27, 2022, as per the guidance of DILG-LGA.
