Environment Secretary Roy A. Cimatu said it is high-time the member states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) take climate change seriously as a threat to sustainable urban development.

“I would like to encourage everyone to take this threat very seriously. The fact that we are gathered here today is an acknowledgment that the problem is in critical proportion,” Cimatu said in a speech delivered last Wednesday at the ASEAN Forum on Urban Resilience to Climate Change and Disaster Risk Reduction Management Strategies held in Laoag City.

The regional forum brought together over 150 research and development experts from across Southeast Asia to discuss plans on attaining urban resilience to climate change and disaster risks within the region.

Experts from ASEAN partners like Japan and India also attended the forum organized by the Ecosystems Research and Development Bureau of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, in cooperation with the ASEAN National Organizing Council under the Office of the President, and the provincial government of Ilocos Norte.   >> more
