The League of Municipalities of the Philippines (LMP) members and executives heard the Climate Change Commission (CCC(CCC) )’s request for immediate climate action on Wednesday.

During the LMP national assembly held at the Manila Hilton, CCC Commissioner Albert Dela Cruz Sr. asked LMP members and officials to support the commission’s initiatives to develop a policy for reducing and preparing for the effects of climate change.

Dela Cruz emphasized the commission’s initiatives to encourage swift climate change action, such as the just switch from landfill use to waste-to-energy (WtE) technology, planned local climate change action plans, and collaboration with various LGUs nationwide.

He also talked about how to use the People’s Survival Fund (PSF), which recently raised concerns about its accessibility since its founding in 2012.

In accordance with Republic Act 10174 of 2012, the PSF was created to offer long-stream financing for adaptation initiatives of local government entities and local/community groups aimed at boosting the adaptability of communities and ecosystems to climate change.

Dela Cruz also addressed the benefits of using WtE technology to gradually replace the usage of landfills as waste disposal facilities because doing so would reduce greenhouse gas emissions, which have been identified as one of the primary causes of climate change and global warming.

He mentioned the commission’s community deputization program, whose scheduled launch would kick off a coordinated effort to manage, conserve, and protect the environment through volunteerism with the deputization of individuals and groups from both the public and private sectors that would augment the government’s manpower source to address climate change.

Dela Cruz previously emphasized the importance of joint efforts from the public and LGUs to ensure that immediate climate action would be implemented in a national and community-wide strategy to stop the negative effects of the phenomenon, which are primarily seen and felt in severe weather disturbances like super typhoons and flash floods.

The LMP assembly, which was presided over by La Paz, Abra Mayor Joseph Santo Nio “JB” Bernos, warmly welcomed the CCC’s call for coordinated action with the LGUs and agreed that immediate climate action is crucial because it will aid Filipinos in adapting to the effects of climate change on their daily lives.

The LMP 2023 General Assembly’s theme, “Strengthening Municipal Capabilities Around Autonomy and Promoting Resiliency,” highlights the various difficulties Municipal Mayors confront as well as the proposed changes to make local service delivery more effective.

Section 496 of Republic Act No. 7160, often known as the Local Government Law of 1991, establishes the LMP.

It is mandated to “organize for the primary aim of ventilating, articulating and crystallizing concerns affecting local government administration, and securing, via legitimate and legal means, answers thereto.”
