The Library supports the broader mission of Citizens’ Disaster Response Center as articulated in its mission statement:
CDRC assists the vulnerable sectors to comprehensively respond to disaster situations and addresses the root causes of their vulnerabilities. CDRC offers itself to the most needy, deprived, and poorest segments of Philippine society whose socio-economic conditions make them highly vulnerable to hazards and disasters, giving special attention to children, women, the frail elderly, and the differently-abled sectors.
This is accomplished by:
- developing a live and growing collection of information resources which are carefully selected based on the needs of the organization and the community it serves;
- providing intellectual and physical access to information resources in all formats;
- working with the administration and staff to design strategies to meet the information needs of the institution and the community it serves.
- CDRC Staff
- Member organizations of Citizens’ Disaster Response Network
