Gibo bats for tailor-made climate change strategies 


TARLAC CITY – The Philippines’ climate change strategies should be appropriate to the situation of the country and not just following the standards of first-world countries.

Thus, called out former defense secretary and senatorial candidate Gilbert “Gibo” Teodoro, explaining that the country may be burdened in complying with the standards if it will merely adopt other nations’ strategies to mitigate impacts of climate change.

“Our country is made up of more than 7,000 islands with different conditions. We must have tailor-made climate change strategies in the Philippine,” said Teodoro who also served as chairman of the National Disaster Coordinating Council. Strategies, preparations and implementation must be fast tracked to lessen the adverse effects of typhoons, flooding in urban and coastal areas, heatwaves, drought, among others, he said

Teodoro, who was an executive for a renewable energy firm, acknowledged that some areas in the country find it challenging to invest in cleaner sources of energy as they are in need for accessible and affordable source of power.

He emphasized the need to capacitate local government units by assisting them to implement localized strategies in combatting climate-related concerns. PR
