The International Center for Climate Governance (ICCG) announced Balangay
Legazpi as the winner of the Best Climate Practices 2017 Award on October 13,
2017. The result of the Best Climate Practices 2017 was announced during the
International Day for Disaster Reduction.
Balangay Legazpi is a cloud-based mobile and web application developed by the
Legazpi City Government and Layertech Software Labs. The disaster information
system connects vulnerable communities and other sectors to information that
can help save lives before and during disasters. The Balangay in its test run has
proven to be very promising in bridging general information gap. The city
government launched and rolled-out the application in August 2017.
