Our bodies of water play a crucial role in regulating the global climate. Unfortunately, with intensifying marine exploitation and increasing temperatures, the health of our oceans is fast declining, affecting its ability to absorb and distribute heat.
For our indigenous communities, climate resilience is rooted in their traditional knowledge. Their deep understanding and intricate connection with their surroundings help them adapt and respond to landscape changes brought about by climate change.
In celebrating its 10th year anniversary in 2022, the OML Center paid tribute to key climate actors, collaborators, and partners who, through the years, supported the Center’s mission of identifying gaps and advancing climate change knowledge and research in the Philippines.
