Coordinating body for PH marine ecosystem pushed
MetadataShow full item record
A De La Salle University (DLSU) professor proposes the establishment of a coordinating body in the Philippines that will make sure coastal ecosystems in the country are healthy in order to help combat the effects of climate change. Dr. Wilfredo Roehl Licuanan of DLSU’s College of Science stated at a recent Policy Forum by the Department of Science and Technology-National Academy of Science and Technology (DOST-NAST) that coordinated action on the country’s coastal and marine resources is better than having one agency managing fisheries, another agency managing the environment, and yet a third one handling tourism separately.
