PCIERD-DOST holds symposium on climate change

Tuguegarao City (9 June) -- To bring the climate change issues to key places across the Philippines, the National Institute of Geological Sciences-University of the Philippines (NIGS-UP), together with the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Service Administration (PAG-ASA) and the Philippine Council for Industry and Energy Research Development (PCIERD-DOST), has conducted the 5th symposia on climate change in the Cagayan Valley Region.

The project aims to update the people on the recent scientific information and provide the means to identify policy issues that the government can address as it confronts climate change.

It is also a venue for earth scientists, local government units and non- government and business organizations to present recent findings and discuss key issues on climate.

Dr. Decibel V. Faustino-Eslava of NIGS-UP said climate change is the accelerated change in environmental conditions due to human activity that is attributed to the burning of fossil fuels over past two centuries since the beginning of industrial revolution.

Engr. Albert Marino of PCIERD presented the top 25 greenhouse gas emitters as of year 2000 and table shows that developing countries like the Philippines is not a major contributor of greenhouse gas but vulnerable to the effect of it.

Participants from different sectors actively participated in identifying problems and issues in the region and proposed some adaptation programs to mitigate and combat climate change.

The group prioritized the concerns and problems that were experienced in the coastal zones of the region such as the illegal fishing activities, destruction of marine habitats, mining, and pollution of the seas due to garbage dumping.

In the forum, the participants have proposed the conduct of massive rehabilitation of mangroves and other marine habitats, enforce the law on the protection of aquatic resources and conduct information and education campaign to the communities on environmental protection and preservation.
