University of the Philippines, and the VSO conducted the 3 days training on Vulnerability and Risk Assessment and Mapping (VRAM) at Notre Dame Review Center, Barangay Bus-Bus, Jolo, Sulu.


VRAM ensures inclusive and risk-informed and shock-responsive social protection resulting in more resilient communities in the BARMM. The main purpose of said training is for the attendees to be able to enumerate vulnerable households in the community, know who are the most vulnerable and why they are vulnerable. Said data will be used to help the host organizations to know and prioritize targets for assistance and development.


The VRAM will be done in the Municipalities of Jolo, Indanan, Pata, Luuk, Omar and the Municipality of Patikul. This program was in proper coordination with the Ministry of Interior and Local Government and the Local Government Unit.
