To address any movement of the West Valley Fault that may cause damage to life and property, the Quezon City government has established ties with the Earthquakes and Megacities Initiative (EMI).
The EMl is an international scientific initiative organization established to advance urban risk reduction policy, knowledge, and practice in megacities and fast-growing metropolises. The group is a member of the UN Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction and partner of the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery. As a scientific organization, EMI is endorsed by the International Geographical Union, International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics, and the International Union of Geological Sciences.
Mayor Herbert Bautista said he has ordered the assessment of all the city government programs and projects to know whether they are aligned with the standards that will guarantee a more disaster-resilient city.
