MetadataShow full item record
The Philippines has renewed its commitment to sustain coastal development across East Asia, continuing its support towards the sustainable use of coastal and marine ecosystems. The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) said the country is a committed partner of the Partnerships in Environmental Management for the Seas of East Asia (PEMSEA), an intergovernmental organization working to foster healthy and resilient oceans, coasts, communities and economies across the region. DENR Undersecretary for Climate Change and Mining Concerns Analiza Rebuelta Teh, who is the PEMSEA national focal point, said the country’s affiliation with the regional organization has led to the successful adaption and implementation of the Integrated Coastal Management (ICM) program under Executive Order (EO) 533.
