CCC and AFP collaborate on reforestation and carbon sequestration

The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and the Climate Change Commission (CCC) have declared their partnership for the implementation of initiatives meant to mitigate the effects of climate change and global warming.

The meeting between AFP Chief of Staff Gen. Andres Centino and CCC Commissioner Albert Dela Cruz Sr. at Camp Aguinaldo in Quezon City led to the collaboration, the commission announced on Wednesday.

According to the CCC, Dela Cruz and Centino discussed a stronger collaboration strategy to promote a “whole-of-nation and -community approach” in the execution of immediate climate action.

According to the report, the two officials decided to carry out efforts for increased agricultural productivity, including tree planting, carbon sequestration, urban gardening, and other activities.

According to the CCC, Centino emphasized the vast number of military camps and preserves scattered across the nation that could be used to promote planting trees and engaging in urban gardening.

“Centino noted that military personnel can significantly contribute to the Marcos administration’s national climate change action plan to help in the efforts for carbon sequestration and similarly in enhancing food productivity while ensuring the country’s resiliency through adaptation and mitigation,” the statement continued.

According to Dela Cruz, initiatives to plant trees and restore forests will improve relations between neighbors and act as a “catalyst for socio-economic development.”

He said that if we want to keep our only home, we must take action.

“Planting trees is an important strategy for everyone to lessen the painful effects of catastrophic meteorological events brought on by climate change. Trees have several advantages. Dela Cruz continued that super typhoons, monsoon rains, landslides, and other irregular weather patterns are only a few of the effects that climate change and global warming have had on us.

Academe’s involvement

Dela Cruz also asked the academic community to support the government’s initiatives to combat climate change.

According to the CCC, he decided while attending the Climate Change Summit at the Bataan Peninsula State University (BPSU) in Balanga.

According to Dela Cruz, it is necessary to encourage ecological and sustainable development founded on the study, empirical evidence, and group effort.

Additionally, he stressed the urgent need for a paradigm shift in environmental preservation and climate change mitigation because the problems with food and water security and population management are “all anthropogenic or caused by human activities.”

Dela Cruz stated, “We have a climate problem, but we also have the solution amidst the problem.” “What we do now will define our children’s future. I thus appeal to academia and the educational community to work with us and stand as one in tackling climate change for the benefit of all.
