The IPCC reports make clear that there is a colossal need for immediate and collective action if we want to ensure a livable future. As the Philippines transitions into a new administration, members of the Philippine scientific community are calling for prioritization of actions addressing  climate change.

In the Eleventh Hour column of the  Manila Bulletin, Pinoy Climate Reality Leader and OML Center’s Communications Manager, Kato Sarmiento, relayed the scientific community’s statement and suggestions.

“The call, first posted on April 24, 2022, two weeks ahead of this year’s Philippine National Election, makes a case for the integration of a climate emergency agenda alongside national plans and priorities in anticipation of how a harsher and less predictable climate will exacerbate existing problems in poverty, food security, economic recovery, and disaster mitigation, among others,” she wrote.
