The event was organized through the efforts of Sentro para sa Ikauunlad ng Katutubong Agham at Teknolohiya Inc. (SIKAT), an NGO which aims to enhance coastal community resiliency by implementing community-based Coastal Resource Management (CRM) and Disaster Risk Reduction Programs (DRR).
The meeting also included an orientation as to the powers, functions, and responsibilities of the Council and its component committees.
