Progressive leaders and members of fisherfolk, urban poor, environment, and church groups called for a moratorium on reclamation projects that could threaten coastal and marine landscapes around the country. They issued the call during a two-day conference titled “2nd People’s Summit on the Impacts of Reclamation” held on March 26-27 in Manila. The advocacy groups said at least 11.24 million people may significantly be impacted by reclamation projects covering 39,414 hectares that threaten coastal and marine landscapes around the country.
