President Aquino calls for more aggressive global effort to address climate change
 

(NEW YORK, New York) President Benigno S. Aquino III called for a global coordinated effort to address climate change noting that with the changing climate, both big and small nations become vulnerable to its ill effects.
 
 "The choice before us, then, is clear: Together we must face these challenges and surmount them, or together we will suffer the consequences of inaction," the President said in his speech at the United Nations Climate Change Summit on Tuesday at the UN headquarters here.
 
 Nations should not engage in another protracted debate over the individual commitments of countries, he said adding it would be a wrong framework to address the issue.
 
 "Instead, everyone here has to do everything they can to address climate change, without first waiting for their neighbors to engage in action," he said. "Doing anything less leaves the problem unattended, too, thereby increasing the problem we all face."
 
 Although not a major emitter, the Philippines is not waiting for other nations to act first, he said.
 
 The country has been addressing climate change to the maximum with its limited resources. Legislation has been enacted to lessen the impact of disasters by adopting a comprehensive approach to disaster response, the President said.
 
 The government has also improved its weather forecasting so that it could send timely warnings to vulnerable communities.
 
 For national and local authorities and residents, the government has undertaken multi-hazard and geohazard mapping, which is integral to the effective assessment of risks, according to the President. (full story: 09.24.14)
