In an interview with ANC 24/7, ICSC deputy executive director Angelo Kairos Dela Cruz said “The Philippines is a good example of how climate policies can be set up, but the challenge comes with implementation.

We must act on climate change, not because the UN says so, not because COP27 says so, we must do it for our own long-term development strategies.”
