LEGARDA URGES PUBLIC TO ‘CONFRONT RISKS AND HAZARDS’

0

For speedy recovery from disasters and hazards, Sen. Loren Legarda on Monday said that what citizens—especially the poor—needed was social protection coupled with developing resilience. Legarda, chair of the Committee for Climate Change and Environment and Natural Resources, said in a privilege speech that because the poor bore the greatest economic losses in disasters, it was only just to train them to be prepared for anything. She said that extreme weather events, such as torrential rains and harsher typhoons that are considered the new normal, should be addressed by looking at the opportunities in the face of threats.
