How stewardship can address pressing environmental issues
MetadataShow full item record
This is where the “face” of environmental stewardship should come out, that is, taking care of the environment because of the concern for all the living, especially our fellow human beings. This is not to say that climate change mitigation should step aside in favor of adaptation. We, as a country, should strive to significantly contribute to the global community’s efforts to arrest climate change in spite of our insignificant greenhouse gas emissions. As an archipelago, restoring our mangrove forests, and protecting them, should go a long way in battling climate change.
