Capability Building on Environmental laws with Local Government Units and Stakeholders was conducted by the Environmental Management Bureau – CAR on October 20, 2022 at New Bontoc Hotel, Mountain Province.

RD Ma. Victoria V. Abrera underscored in her message that climate change is not abstract but a reality we are facing and in fact CAR is vulnerable to its effects. She re-echoed that EMB-CAR has a roadmap program for Mountain Province, Apayao, Ifugao, and Kalinga for climate change vulnerability. This roadmap is significant in coming up with timely actions to help combat the effects of climate change. She also hopes to reach out to the establishment owners to partner with EMB CAR in taking care of the environment through compliance to the environmental laws. She also commended that the indigenous practices in Mountain Province are great examples of common responsibility in managing and conserving the environment.

Meanwhile, the Environmental Management Bureau has also gone digital in terms of online submissions of environmental permits for faster and efficient service to the clients. //fds
