PH, Japan seek ties for the environment


THE Department of Environment and Natural Resources and the Ministry of the Environment Japan are set to discuss environmental issues and share opportunities for cooperation toward a decarbonized infrastructure and society.

The two agencies will hold an online event for the first-ever Philippines-Japan Environmental Week from March 2 to 4, 2022. It is expected to convene around 1,000 participants from the public and private sectors, research and academic institutions, international and regional organizations, and nongovernment organization.

In a statement, Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu said the event will pave the way for new opportunities for strengthened partnerships as he cited the Philippines-Japan partnership over the past years, particularly on environmental innovation and development, and waste management policy.

“Without a doubt, our country continues to face environmental crises, such as waste pollution and climate change, amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Strong global partnerships and cooperation anchored upon shared vision and goals are vital toward green recovery,” Cimatu said.
