Gov't urged: Stop cleared reclamation projects
MetadataShow full item record
President Duterte’s directive to stop reclamation activities in Manila Bay should cover projects that have already received clearances, such as the proposed airports in Cavite and Bulacan, advocates and experts said. The Save Our Shores Coalition Against Reclamation (SOS Coalition) welcomed the President’s recent pronouncement that he will not allow any reclamation activity by the private sector in the Manila Bay during the remainder of his term. The group, however, said the ban should also cover those that have already secured clearances, either from local government units or national government agencies.
