Presidential Adviser for Environmental Protection and Laguna Lake Development Authority (LLDA) General Manager Secretary Neric Acosta leads a series of activities aimed at building more resilient, sustainable and climate change adaptive communities in Post-Yolanda Eastern Visayas.
OPAEP spearheaded the activity in cooperation with the Laguna Lake Development Authority (LLDA), the Council of Asian Liberals and Democrats (CALD), local government units in Southern Leyte, the Kahupian Upland Farmers Association (KUFA), and the faith-based Operation Compassion.
To mark the start of the resilience management efforts, a symposium was held to provide a forum among students and the academe, national and local government, media and civil society, and other stakeholders in order to take stock of the current situation in Leyte and to discuss viable and effective responses to address the challenges besetting Leyte after the Yolanda disaster. The symposium aimed to strengthen plans and programs for sustainable and climate change-resilient communities in the island province.
