Ifugao Festival focuses on climate change
MetadataShow full item record
As part of the festival, Legarda’s committee will conduct a hearing at the Provincial Capitol to explain the effects of climate change to the local communities in the Cordillera region and to discuss environmental sustainability and heritage conservation, including threats to the Ifugao Rice Terraces. According to experts, climate change is expected to increase rainfall intensities and prolong the dry season which would mean decreased water supply, dangerous landslides and even the collapse of the terraces. Legarda will also launch “Guardians of the Forest, Stewards of the Land," a coffee table book on indigenous forest conservation systems in the Cordillera region. The book is a project of Senator Legarda and the State Universities and Colleges of the Cordillera Administrative Region Research and Development Consortium (SUCCARRDEC).
