2017 has been a year of significant change for NOAH which is captured by what University of the Philippines (UP) President Danilo L. Concepcion said: “NOAH is home.”
Project NOAH became the UP NOAH Center. It was formally adopted by UP as a research center for climate actions and disaster risk reduction and management during the Board of Regents’ 1325th meeting last February 23, 2017. It was established as a center through Executive Order No. PDLC 17-03 on 21 March 2017.
