Philippines: Senator praises colleagues for signing climate change pact


'This document fortifies the commitment of a growing number of policymakers in the country to decisively confront the issues of worsening disasters and climate change impacts,' said Senator Legarda further to the adoption of the 'Incheon Resolution of Philippine Parliamentarians on Effective Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation in the Philippines' recently in Korea. The resolution binds the legislators to "call on all sectors of society to participate actively and take necessary actions to reduce disaster risks and to adapt to climate change."

'I urge the executive department to integrate disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation in its development plans and investments,' she added
