Vulnerability assessment on climate change seminar held in San Carlos City

San Carlos City (25 March) -- The city, in cooperation with Tambuyog Development Center, conducted a seminar workshop on Vulnerability Assessment for Adaptation Planning on Climate Change, recently at the Alger Community Center.

San Carlos City was among the cities and municipalities along Taņon Strait selected by the Center for the vulnerability assessment under its Sustainable Fisheries and Trade program which includes the major activity on adaptation of their partners on climate change impacts.

The seminar was sponsored by the San Carlos City Disaster Coordinating Council and was participated by barangay officials and secretaries, NGOs, officers and staff of local PNP and other offices of the city.

Climate change is already causing and continue to cause negative impacts on coastal communities and municipalities fisheries, most significantly on coastal fisheries yield and community welfare.

Response to climate change center on two main types of interventions, one is mitigation that focuses on reducing emissions of green house gases, and the other is adaptation that concerns on reducing the risks of and improving society?s resilience to increased climate variability and long term climate change.

Considering that coastal ecosystems are severely degraded, an important element of any adaptation strategy is to reduce human threats to corals, mangrove areas, seagrass beds, estuaries, living shorelines and other coastal ecosystems. (San Carlos City/PIA/cad) [top]
