DENR urged to revoke ECCs issued to three Manila Bay reclamation projects
MetadataShow full item record
Three Manila Bay reclamation projects already issued with environment compliance certificates (ECCs) are located at the southern part of the bay which was already declared by the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) as a conservation area for sardines. The Pambansang Lakas ng Kilusang Mamamalakaya ng Pilipinas (Pamalakaya) revealed this as it urged the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) to immediately revoke the ECCs it issued to the 419-hectare Horizon Manila Project, 148-hectare Manila Solar City, and 318-hectare Manila Waterfront Project to prevent them from inflicting environmental damage to Manila Bay’s marine ecosystem and biodiversity. All three projects will rise at the conservation area for sardines.
