True to the challenge of the theme for the observance of the National Climate Change Consciousness Week 2022, “Sama-samang Tumutugon sa Hamon ng Nagbabagong Klima,” the Community Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) of Pambujan, Northern Samar anchored its series of communication, education and public awareness (CEPA) campaigns  on how the public could help mitigate the challenge of climate change.

In Brgy. Ginagdanan, Northern Samar, CENRO Pambujan personnel  conducted a lecture on climate change for a People’s Organization maintaining a tree plantation under the Community-Based Forest Management Agreement (CBFM) program. Their discussion  focused on proper management of their plantation as a mitigating measure against the adverse effects of climate change.

Lectures on R.A 9003 otherwise known as the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000 were also held at Brgy. Manaybanay and Brgy. Del Sur, Mapanas, Northern Samar. Barangay officials, 4Ps beneficiaries, senior citizens and Persons with Disabilities attended the lectures aimed at engaging the communities to practice effective solid waste management in their respective homes in order to minimize wastes and air pollutants that contribute to the accumulation of greenhouse gases which cause climate change.

CEPA materials were distributed to the participants after the lecture series.
