With the growing threat of climate change, the Duterte government through the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) is putting premium on building climate resilient communities throughout the country.  Photo shows DENR chief Gina Lopez, assisted by DENR-Region 8 Director Leonardo Sibbaluca, preparing to plant a mangrove seedling in Brgy Anibong, Tacloban City, part of the 12-hectare Leyte Gulf Mangrove and Beach Forest Rehabilitation Project launched in 2014, after super typhoon Yolanda devastated the area in Nov. 2013.  Lopez visited the place in November last year to attend the Cabinet meeting presided by Pres. Duterte  in Tacloban City. ###
