Public Works and Highways Secretary Mark A. Villar and University of the Philippines (UP) officials led the ceremonial groundbreaking of the UP Resilience Institute (UPRI) building at the UP Diliman Campus on Wednesday, September 25, 2019.

As the center for research on climate change and disaster risk reduction and management, the construction of the ten (10) storey building is expected to steer further studies on how to address the issues.

“The construction of UPRI shall provide scientists adequate space to conduct their experiments and cross-disciplinary discussions which will pave way to more solutions on how to combat climate change and improve disaster risk reduction and management in the country,” Secretary Villar added.

The P400 million building, with funding covered by the the Memorandum of Agreement between UP and DPWH, will be situated at the former site of Villadolid Hall, the Environmental Science building in UP Diliman.

Implemented by the Quezon City Second District Engineering Office, the building project is expected to finish on January 2021.
