Kabankalan City hosts orientation on climate change

Negros Occidental (11 June) -- An orientation on climate change was held recently in Kabankalan City by a team from the Provincial Environment Management Office represented by Engr. Jun Montinola, provincial environment management officer and Elmer Espeja, project development officer and in-charge of the climate change unit of the province.

The orientation, hosted by Kabankalan City Planning and Development Office and was also sponsored by the Committee on Environment, Natural Resources and Ecology and the City Ecological Solid Waste Management Board.

Montinola said that the Philippines is the fourth most at risk country in the world because of global warming which now results to frequent flooding, typhoons, drought, red-tide poisoning and dengue outbreaks.

Meanwhile, Espeja explained the current state of climate change is no longer a threat but a reality because we can now feel its adverse effects to our crops, rising of water levels and disappearance of some islands.

Participants came from the various sectors like the city and barangay officials, Task Force Kalinisan volunteers, DILG, religious, academe and NGOs. (Kabankalan/PIA/EAD) [top]
