Unformatted text preview: Republic of the Philippines House of Representatives Quezon City, Metro Manila foreword the welfare and protecon of children and disaster response management have long been among the government’s priority concerns. Today, in the context of increasing populaon and the growing effects of global warming, the welfare and protecon of children as well as disaster response management have become immensely alarming challenges to sustained development in the Philippines. This compilaon of Philippine laws and execuve issuances is intended to serve as a reference material for legislators and policy makers in craing laws and formulang policies and programs that are more responsive to current needs for children’s welfare and effecve disaster response management. Students and researchers will also find this compilaon equally helpful as it enables them to gain a broader perspecve on the spectrum of government iniaves for safeguarding children’s welfare and consolidang communal capabilies for disaster response management. This book contains the laws and execuve issuances of different administraons through the American period, the Commonwealth era, the Japanese occupaon, up to the country’s independence covering the period 1907 to 2010. Thus, the reader will see laws that are named Acts, Commonwealth Acts, Presidenal Decrees and Republic Acts. Execuve issuances are those promulgated by the President of the Philippines such as Execuve Orders, Presidenal Decrees and Presidenal Proclamaons. It also includes orders emanang from the different departments of the government such as the Department of Health and the Department of Social Welfare and Development. Laws and execuve issuances on the welfare and protecon of children and disaster response management from 1907 to 2010, whether these have been repealed and amended, are included in this book. This book is the first of a series of topical compilaons of laws which will be produced by the House Secretariat, a most commendable program of legislave documentaon which will certainly enrich the terrain of legislave policy making in the country. I acknowledge the reless efforts devoted into the producon of this book by the House Secretary General Marilyn B. BaruaYap and the Legislave Informaon and Resource Management Department consisng of the Legislave Library Service and the Archives and Museum Management Service, as well as the Prinng and Reproducon Service.
