Palawan?s Best Kept Secret:
A Forum on Puerto Princesa?s Environment Management Practices

June 22, 2011, Wednesday
2:30 PM to 4:00 PM
Faura AVR

The Political Science Department of the Ateneo de Manila University  
invites you to a forum on the environment management practices and  
politics of Puerto Princesa under the leadership of Mayor Edward S.  

While Puerto Princesa has spent years struggling against the  
challenges of illegal logging and illegal fishing that have degraded  
its vast forestry and biodiversity, it is now heralded as the  
?Cleanest and Greenest City in the Philippines.?

This year, Puerto Princesa launched its first Green House Gas  
Inventory following the internationally recognized guidelines from the  
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.  It is the first city to  
have undertaken the difficult task of determining its level of green  
house gas, and is now certified as carbon-neutral.

Mayor Edward S. Hagedorn will also briefly talk about the challenges  
of mining and his anti-mining advocacy in Palawan.
