Rep. Rufus Rodriguez (2nd district, Cagayan de Oro) and his younger brother, Maximo Rodriguez (Abante Mindanao party-list), through House Bill (HB) No. 3987 is seeking the establishment of the Philippine Academy for Climate Change Adaptations and Disaster Risk Reduction. "Since 2009, numerous storms, typhoons and other natural disasters have hit the Philippines. The most recent of which was typhoon Yolanda which struck parts of Visayas and claimed thousands of lives and caused total damages amounting to P30 billion," the elder Rodriguez said in justifying the measure.
