Makati City hosted CityNet Disaster Cluster Seminar

The 15th CityNet Disaster Cluster Seminar (15th CNDC)  has been held in Makati city in Philippines during June 7-8, 2023. The CNDC was hosted by Makati City as a Lead of CityNet Disaster Cluster. Ms. Mar-Len Abigail S. Binay, Mayor from Makati City Government had welcomed the participants.

As the first major cluster activity under new leadership, this seminar launched and gathered inputs on the Disaster Cluster Plan for 2023-2026.
