The Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (PDRRMC) here will be conducting various activities to inform the public on the effects of climate change to the environment.
Pursuant to Proclamation no. 1776 of President Benigno S. Aquino III, the climate change commission will be spearheading a climate change consciousness week slated on November 19-25.
This is to promote awareness on climate change mitigation and adaptation opportunities towards climate-smart development to ensure adaptability of communities, the resilience of natural eco-system and the sustainability of built environment to climate change in the country.
The PDRRMC has laid out a plan to observe the week-long observance through information, education and communication activities including distribution of IEC materials, mass sponsorship and offering, and workshops on climate change.
The PDRRMC will also lead in the tree planting at the Magat dam reservoir watershed in Ramon, Isabela.
