Para mapabuti ang paghahanda sa mga kalamidad, dapat na gawing ehemplo ng pamahalaan ang mga matatagumpay na kumpanyang namuhunan sa research and development (R & D).

Ito ang iminungkahi ni Senador Panfilo Lacson, chairman ng Senate Commitee on National Defense and Security, matapos ang sunod-sunod na kalamidad, kasama ang pagsabog ng bulkang Taal.

Ayon kay Lacson, mga 0.4 porsiyento lamang ang nakalaan sa R & D sa pambansang gastusin.

To enhance its disaster preparedness and risk management capabilities, the government should take a cue from big, successful companies: invest big on research and development (R & D).

On this note, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson pushed for bigger investments in R & D, which he lamented accounts for only a minuscule 0.4 percent of the national budget.

“Science entails research. Science can greatly help especially during disasters. Yet, why do we appropriate only 0.4 percent on the average for R & D?” said Lacson, who chaired a Senate hearing on disaster management last Wednesday.
