The NEDA Board-National Land Use Committee (NB-NLUC) will mainstream disaster risk reduction in subnational development and land use or physical planning.

In the very first meeting of the NEDA Board-NLUC chaired by NEDA Deputy Director-General Augusto B. Santos said "the Board has agreed to tackle in the next two years land use-related concerns such as mainstreaming disaster risk reduction in subnational development and land use or physical planning".

Santos added that the NEDA Board-NLUC will also look into mapping and ground delineation of the boundaries of protected and hazard-prone areas, forest boundary delineation and cadastral surveys or mapping.

The NEDA Board-NLUC also discussed the implementing rules and regulations of Executive Order (EO) 770.

As provided in Executive Order (EO) 770, the NLUC is strengthened and reconstituted into a NEDA Board committee, making it the highest policy-making body on land use.
It is chaired by the Secretary of Socioeconomic Planning with the following as members: Secretaries of Environment and Natural Resources; Agriculture; Agrarian Reform; Trade and Industry; Public Works and Highways; Transportation and Communications; Tourism; Interior and Local Government; Justice; Science and Technology; and Energy; Chairpersons of the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council/Housing and Land Use Regulatory Board; and the National Commission on Indigenous People; and two representatives from the private sector. The EO likewise provides that the NB-NLUC shall invite the respective presidents of the League of Provinces, Municipalities and Cities to its meetings.
