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
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.
