Is National Legislation Creating the Space for Agreement in 2015?
Congresswoman Susan Yap of Tarlac, 2nd District and GLOBE Philippines founding member will be speaking at the GLOBE Official Side Event in the on-going UNFCC COP19 in Warsaw, Poland. On 19 November, Congresswoman Yap will discuss the lessons learned in implementing the Philippines' Climate Change Act.
The Congresswoman, who also chairs the House of Representatives Special Committee on Reforestation, stressed that, "Legislation must timely address our country's needs and should be coherent with our national strategy. Having an international parliamentarian exchange will create better understanding and engagement with governments across the globe on how we can collectively unite and take action to achieve our common goal to combat climate change."
