In 2012, after the tropical storm Sendong, SM Prime Holdings took the role to lead advocacy for disaster risk reduction and management (DRRM) within the private sector. SM Prime Holdings organized the first annual meeting amongst top leaders in the private and public sectors to address issues relative to DRRM. In 2015, after the UN adopted the Sendai Framework, SM Prime Holdings and over 60 partners formally established the ARISE Philippines Network.
The Network elected its first Board of Directors (BOD) that will provide guidance and direction to the Network. The Board is composed of eleven members including two (2) Co-Chairs and nine (9) regular members representing their respective companies that are also members of ARISE Philippines.
