Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Secretary and Task Force Build Back Better (TFBBB) Chairman Roy Cimatu has ordered the creation of TFBBBs in the regional level in an effort to fast-track the government's recovery and rehabilitation programs in typhoon-ravaged areas in the country.

The creation of the regional TFBBB was pursuant to the DENR's mandate under Executive Order 120 issued by President Rodrigo Duterte on Nov. 18, 2020 to expedite and lead the preparation, implementation, and monitoring of post-disaster rehabilitation and recovery program for typhoon-ravaged areas.

"The creation of RTFBBB is in response to the intention of EO 120 for government entities to work with a clear unity of command and in a sustained and cohesive form in relation to current and future post-typhoon recovery and rehabilitation efforts," Cimatu said at the recent DENR expanded executive committee conference.
