The USAID Water Security for Resilient Economic Growth and Stability (Be Secure) Project, in coordination with the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) and the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) is undertaking a survey to determine the satisfaction of different stakeholders on weather and climate information provided by PAGASA.  The activity aims to understand the usefulness of PAGASA information in strengthening preparations for disaster risk reduction at the local level.  Insight Asia, a leading research agency in the Philippines, has been tasked by Be Secure to conduct the satisfaction surveys in the project focal areas.  Mines and Geosciences Bureau Regional Director Rex Monsanto has been selected as one of the key respondents for the PAGASA satisfaction survey.  RD Monsanto was interviewed at his office on May 26, 2016 by field interviewers from Insight Asia Research Group.
