'More climate action for Coral Triangle'
MetadataShow full item record
The Philippines sees the need for more international climate action that will better protect the 6 million-square kilometer Coral Triangle, the marine area experts cited as center of marine biodiversity on Earth. Philippine Environment chief Roy Cimatu raised the urgency for elevating such need before the international community, noting climate change is already adversely affecting the Coral Triangle. "Climate change is upon us," he said Friday (Dec. 14) in Makati City at the 7th Coral Triangle Initiative on Coral Reefs, Fisheries and Food Security (CTI-CFF) ministerial meeting which looked into measures for better protecting the area.
