“SAMA-SAMA SA K5: Kilos sa Klima at KalamidadTungo sa Kaligtasan at Kaunlaran”

            A public forum on climate change and disaster risk reduction management was conducted by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Region IX for coastal residents of Barangay Bucana, Siocon, Zamboanga Del Norte in line with the celebration of the National Climate Change Consciousness Week (November 19-25).

 This activity aims to create awareness on global warming and climate change by pursuing broad and intensive public information and education campaign to secure the collective cooperation of private and public sectors at all levels to finding solution to this concern.

The celebration is pursuant to Proclamation No. 1667 series of 2008 with the theme “Harmonizing NCCAP Towards Building Community Resilience”. 
This multi-stakeholders activity is entitled “Sama-sama sa K5: Kilos sa Klima at Kalamidad Tungo sa Kaligtasan at Kaunlaran”.

 

 Siocon CENRO Nelson V. Velasco in his message emphasized the need for community residents to be aware on effects of climate change as its impact is being felt by the community in terms of the occurrence of flash floods and storm surge during the onslaught of Tropical Depression Vinta last year. “The overwhelming presence of the community and other stakeholders coming the local government unit, municipal fisheries, 42nd Infantry Battalion of the Philippine Army, Philippine Coast Guards, women’s association and fisher folks is evident that people are gravely concerned and there is a need for them to prepare and adapt against climate change”, CENRO Velasco added.

Earlier, the DENR-IX team also conducted storytelling and coloring activity for forty seven (47) school children of Hatib Asamuddin Primary School and distribution of IEC materials.
This multi-stakeholder activity culminated with a mangrove propagule planting along the coastal area of the said Barangay.
