ILAGAN, Isabela, January 9 (PIA) –- The provincial government of Isabela will be conducting the first ever climate change summit on Friday, January 13 at the Francisco N. Dy Sr. session hall at the Isabela capitol.

During the climate change summit, Dy is expected to share insights on the issue of flood control and impact mitigation measures in the face of the disastrous effects of climate change.
This will also be a venue to unveil the province’s flood control mitigation plan and to come up with a water release protocol that will govern coordinate links among local government units and government agencies.
The provincial government is hoping for a successful climate change summit in the province this week to cushion the effects of climate change in Isabela. (TCB/MGE/PIA- Isabela)
