Abstract: Using the descriptive and developmental design, the study developed a decision support infographics system for DRRM in Biliran province. It answer significant issues as to challenges encountered by the participants regarding the DRRM, application that can be developed to address the identified disaster risk and reduction management, extent of compliance of the developed application to ISO Standard. The participants of the study include two groups of individuals. Participants in the focus group discussion were the ten DRRM officer from the different municipality of the Province of Biliran. The second group were the ten (10) ICT experts who participated in the technical evaluation of the developed system. The study adopted two types of research instruments, which includes proving questions for the FGD, and the evaluation tool based on the ISO 25010. Interestingly, result implies that the area which needs appropriate action based on the FGD conducted was the absence of computerized system for DRRM. There is really a need to come up with a system that is capable of addressing issues on DRRM and is anchored on the agenda of the PDRRMO. Moreover, areas evaluated based on ISO standard were met by the developed application and can be used as a tool for disaster planning and mitigation measures.
