TAGBILARAN CITY, June 06 (PIA)--The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) calls for the cooperation of the public on the effort for climate adaptation in time for the observance of the Environment Month.

DENR Information Officer Maria Corazon Colarines and Community Environment Natural and Resources Office (CENRO)-Talibon Elpidio Palaca shared insights on climate change and global warming during yesterday’s Kapihan sa PIA held at the PIA Bohol Information Center at K of C Drive this city.

Elpidio Palaca of CENRO-Talibon called on the people to take on the global warming and climate change seriously. He added that it is not just a DENR issue but an issue that involves everybody on earth.

The CENRO of Talibon said sea levels in Bohol will most probably continue to rise and development must be adopted for climate change wherein small islands and areas vulnerable to sea level rise must build higher.

Trees are 70% carbon and that cutting trees release carbons by burning. Mangroves absorb carbon over 10% more than trees, according to DENR.
Tropical rain forests are the earth’s best shield against changing climate.

DENR has a reforestration project for the CENRO-Talibon wherein around 25% of the trees planted are fruit trees putting up food need supply. CENRO-Talibon covers 9,000 hectares of idle lands.

Per Presidential Proclamation No. 237 signed in 1988 by then President Corazon C. Aquino, the Philippines celebrates the whole month of June as Environment Month to focus public attention to the protection and conservation of the country’s natural resources. 

The Philippine Information Agency (PIA-7) and the DENR-7 is set to launch the Climate Change Advocacy Campaign in Central Visayas on June 10 during the 1st Regional Information Summit and 21st Consultative Conference of the Regional Association of Development Information Officers (RADIO-7) in the region at Hotel Elizabeth in Cebu City on June 9-11.

This is in line with the priority thrust of the Aquino Administration to build resilient communities in the face of disasters under the overarching message, "Nagbabago na ang Panahon, Panahon na Para Magbago." (ecb/PIA7-Bohol)
