To tackle climate change, the CCC will incorporate volunteers
To increase community involvement and volunteerism in the fight against climate change in the nation, the Climate Change Commission (CCC) and the Philippine National Volunteer Service Coordinating Agency (PNVSCA) have signed a memorandum of understanding.
IN A NEWS RELEASE ON WEDNESDAY, the CCC Vice Chairperson and Executive Director Robert Borje emphasized the value of volunteering as a tool in developing and advancing laws to prevent, reduce, and deal with climate threats.
Borje continued that initiatives to increase community resilience and lower greenhouse gas emissions depend heavily on volunteers.
“We must recognize that volunteerism is important for developing holistic formation and growth and being present in distress. As a result, volunteering acts as a catalyst for advancement and long-lasting change, according to Borje.
By the whole-of-society approach to sustainable development taken by the national government, the CCC and PNVSCA will jointly organize, support, and take part in programs and activities to promote volunteerism in mainstreaming climate change resiliency.
The cooperation is anticipated to offer an efficient structure to guarantee that measures to combat climate change are integrated across various industries and communities.
According to Donald James Gawe, executive director of the PNVSCA, the collaboration would encourage more stakeholders and volunteers to support the nation’s climate change plan.
“This is also a good opportunity not only to raise awareness, but as we engage more partners from the private sector, civil society organizations, academe, national government agencies, and local government units, this partnership can encourage more stakeholders to create and establish their own volunteering mechanism to build and enhance the climate resilience of their respective communities,” said Gawe.
Gawe and Borje signed the MOA at a ceremony that took place at the CCC office in Manila.
Through this partnership, the two organizations will increase the synergy and cooperation among the government and other stakeholders in order to hasten the Philippines’ transition to a sustainable and climate-resilient future.
