The first of its kind in the Philippines, the Time Critical Debris Management Project was implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). The project covered the towns of Laak, Montevista, Monkayo, Compostela, Mabini and New Bataan in Compostela Valley and Boston, Baganga, and Cateel in Davao Oriental. The project was able to integrate debris management into disaster preparedness measures, livelihood and skills development activities and solid waste management. It has assisted the affected areas in managing their debris - from clearing to proper disposal to engaging in productive livelihood ventures using the collected debris.
