Bohol Launches Shelter Disaster Resiliency Projects

Resiliency in Bohol’s Top 4 Most Typhoon-Odette Affected Municipalities

The grant from the Office of the President’s Socio-Civic Projects Fund (SCPF), amounting to One Hundred Million Pesos (Php 100,000,000) paved the way to the recovery and rehabilitation of Bohol’s Top 4 Most Typhoon-Odette Affected Municipalities: Talibon, Ubay, Loboc, and the island municipality of Pres. Carlos P. Garcia.

After series of consultation and coordination meeting, and finalization of the necessary Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) and Implementation Plans relative to the release of the SCPF and operationalization of appropriate Post-Typoon Odette Rehabilitation and Recovery Projects, the four beneficiary Local Government Units (LGUs) were able to conduct the initial step for disaster recovery.

During the last quarter of 2022, the Municipality of Talibon launched its Resettlement Center in Barangay San Carlos through a Groundbreaking Ceremony while the Municipalities of Ubay, and Pres. Carlos P. Garcia conducted similar kickoff activities for their respective Evacuation Centers.

The activities were attended by Governor Erico Aristotle Aumentado, Provincial Administrator Asteria Caberte, SCPF beneficiary LGUs’ Local Chief Executives and members of the provincial, and municipal shelter teams.


The resettlement area, located in Barangay San Carlos in Talibon will be built for residents living in disaster prone areas. Beneficiaries are families who were displaced after Typhoon Odette. New homes will be provided to enable them to start anew.

Governor Aris Aumentado led the Groundbreaking and Time Capsule Laying Ceremony for the Resettlement Center in San Carlos, Talibon, Bohol last October 6, 2022, marking the start of the erection of Talibon’s Post-Odette Rehabilitation and Recovery Project funded by the Office of the President’s Socio-Civic Projects Fund (SCPF)

The island municipality of Pres. Carlos P. Garcia opted for the establishment of a disaster-resilient Evacuation Site in Barangay Pitogo considering its multiple inhabited component islets. The site hopes to accommodate island and islet residents who will be needing a safer place during the occurrence of strong typhoons, storm surge, severe flooding, and other calamitous events.
