1. Disaster and Risk Preparedness
IDEP focuses on helping every community with tools and practical knowledge to help reduce the loss of lives and resources when a catastrophe strikes. The foundation gives appropriate training for erosion control, risk mapping and community response, as well as waste management.
2. Emergency Response
A country-wide support network covers immediate aid delivery of basic needs to help keep people from leaving their communities. Basic water, sanitation and health care are addressed right away to initiate community recovery.
3. Facilitating Community Recovery
IDEP also provides the necessary education and materials for earthquake-proof bamboo buildings, soil rehabilitation, planting, self-propagating seed distribution and coastal management. An extension of the program is water management, food security and small enterprise setup.
4. Sustainable Development
To help get communities back on their feet, the organization conducts training for: organic farming, pest control, sewage treatment and conservation, among others. IDEP also supplements this with the appropriate technology needed.
