The Climate Change Commission (CCC) is urging for the preservation of the country’s coastal and marine resources to ensure the sustainable sources of goods and services amid the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic. During “The Great Web: Covid-19, Climate Change and The Ocean” online forum, Climate Change Commissioner Noel Antonio Gaerlan said that the public should give preferential attention in reinforcing, observing, and developing coastal and marine activities to facilitate the conservation, rehabilitation, and sustainable management of the Philippine coastal and marine resources. Gaerlan also highlighted the value of the coastal and marine resources in the field of medicine and in providing services for the health sector.
