Resilience and Preparedness towards Inclusive Development (RAPID) Program is an expansion of the Project Climate Twin Phoenix (PCTP) that supports the long-term recovery of local government units (LGUs) and communities in Yolanda-affected areas, namely municipalities located along the coastline of San Pedro Bay and Leyte Gulf which are: Tacloban City, Palo, Tanauan, Tolosa, Dulag, Mayorga, MacArthur and Abuyog in Leyte, Basey and Marabut in Samar, and Lawaan and Balangiga in Eastern Samar. RAPID focuses on risk management, which covers risk and vulnerability assessments, emergency preparedness and response, climate/disaster risk reduction, and a strengthened regulatory framework via control measures to land use planning, engineering standards and project evaluation. The RAPID Program ran from 2014 to 2019 and was funded by the Australian Government implemented by UNDP with CCC as its leading implementing agency. The program held their culminating activity on July 12, 2019.
