This thesis looked into how Metro Manila Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council (MMDRRMC) and the Local Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (LDRRMC) exchanged flood mitigation and preparedness information. The study was guided by the Time-Critical Information and Services (TCIS) framework and the four dimensions (communication willingness, behavior, quality, and commitment) of the Inter-Organization Communication Management model. Using the operational, organizational and governance dimensions of the TCIS framework, the study discovered the different information sharing practices of the employees of local and regional DRRM units.
