One of Governor Aris Aumentado’s new administration’s focus for the 1st 100 days in office is to revitalize the economy of the province post pandemic and Typhoon Odette with the approach to “strengthen public resiliency.”
This was made possible by the Grant from the Office of the President’s Socio-Civic Projects Funk (SCPF), amounting to One Hundred Million Pesos (Php 100,000,000), to Bohol Province affected by Typhoon Odette.
To be able to achieve the maximum benefit of the Grant, the new administration find it most appropriate to utilize the financial assistance for the implementation of a long-term and more comprehensive solution. Anticipating similar future calamities, the Provincial Government of Bohol (PGBh) decided to appropriate the Grant for the establishment of resettlement and evacuation facilities for the Top 4 Most Typhoon Odette-Affected Municipalities identified by the Bohol Shelter Cluster Team; Talibon, Ubay, Loboc, and Pres. Carlos P. Garcia Island. Resilient Resettlement Sites for people living in Talibon and Loboc, and Safe Evacuation Facility in Ubay, and Pres. Carlos P. Garcia will be established.
Consultation and coordination meetings with the members of the Provincial Shelter Cluster Core Team and the four (4) Municipal Shelter Teams were held for the development of a necessary Memorandum of Agreement (MOA), and Implementation Plan, as well as discuss related issues and concerns.
The Joint Meeting of the Bohol Provincial Shelter Cluster Core Team and the four (4) Municipal Shelter Teams held last September 16, 2022, was facilitated by Provincial Administrator Asteria Caberte and was attended by the local chief executives of the municipalities of Loboc, and Pres. Carlos P. Garcia, and the concerned key department heads of the four project ares.
To launch the Municipality of Talibon Resettlement Program, a Groundbreaking Ceremony is scheduled on October 06, 2022, at Brgy. San Carlos in Talibon.
