What next after Boracay?
MetadataShow full item record
Talk is cheap, but action is needed. We are already seeing decisive action on the water issues in Boracay but that is only the tip of the iceberg. The bigger problem that should be addressed is water security. Consistent with President Duterte’s commitment to the Agri-Fisheries Alliance to address the immense water challenge when he was still a presidential candidate, action is being undertaken today. Seven peace summits have been conducted in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao addressing the issues of five different sectors identified by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) needing priority water actions.
