LGUs move to integrate climate policies
MetadataShow full item record
Local governments have integrated climate change policies in their protected landscape and eco-town projects in disaster-prone areas in Marikina City and Rizal. In a multisectoral project together with the Southeast Asian Regional Center for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture (SEARCA), the Upper Marikina River Basin Protected Landscape (UMRBPL) will demonstrate climate change integration in agriculture and natural resources management by the respective local government units (LGUs) to benefit farmers and residents in the towns of Tanay, San Mateo, Rodriguez, Baras, and Antipolo City – all in Rizal province. This project will allow LGUs to adapt to climate change through proper agricultural and environmental management practices.
