    In 2015, the Department of Agriculture (DA) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) collaborated to pilot an unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV)-based methodology for pre- and post-disaster assessment in the Bicol and Davao Regions in order to mainstream innovative ways to enhance Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) in the agriculture sector. As of 2019, all DA- Regional Field Offices (RFOs) are equipped and capable of operating fixed-wing or multi-rotor UAVs, which have been used in numerous areas affected by disasters. This good practice fact sheet looks at how UAVs contribute to strengthening disaster resilience in the Philippines.
