Gov. Arthur Defensor Jr. has superbly presented the climate change situation, action and key next steps before the international participants and key experts in the UN-Habitat Learning forum on September 12, 2023, in Fukuoka, Japan.
The governor clearly articulated his "Purok Resilience" initiative, that is, putting science into the resettlement of communities in disaster-prone areas plus putting science on it.
Provincial Planning and Development Office Chief Mario Nillos joined the governor in the forum.
Defensor was the most asked presenter in the forum.
Congratulations Governor Toto!
