Connecting Business initiative Secretariat • 8 May 2020

The MSME Guide to Disaster Resilience serves as a reference material for micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) to have an understanding of the basic concepts of disaster risk reduction and management, and business continuity practices. The guide also includes sample toolkits and exercises which can help MSMEs develop their own emergency preparedness and business continuity plans.

The MSME Guidebook contains four (4) major components:
Chapter 1: Why the Need to Prepare? The Importance of Disaster Preparedness for Small Businesses
Chapter 2: Introduction to the Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Law: The Philippine DRRM System
Chapter 3: Preparing Your Business
Chapter 4: Helping Businesses Recover

The MSME Guide to Disaster Resilience was developed by the Philippine Disaster Resilience Foundation, Department of Trade and Industry, Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Philexporters Confederation, Inc., and Office of Civil Defense as part of the National MSME Resilience Core Group.
