Inter-economy cooperation, key to managing climate impacts
MetadataShow full item record
A government or a sector in isolation can no longer manage disasters, according to Undersecretary Alexander P. Pama, administrator of the Office of the Civil Defense (OCD) and executive director of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC). Speaking during the 7th Emergency Preparedness Working Group (EPWG) meeting of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) held in Subic Bay Freeport, Pama underscored the importance of inter-cooperation in dealing with the effects of climate change, which he said has been “growing in intensity and frequency.” Citing the growing intensity and frequency of natural hazards here and abroad, Pama underscored how the impact of disasters is increasingly crossing borders.
