Kamayan Forum scrutinizes Cha-Cha's implications to Philippine environment

Environmental coalition Green Convergence held another installment of their monthly Kamayan Para sa Kalikasan Forum last July 20, 2018 at the Kamayan Restaurant EDSA, Mandaluyong City. The forum tackled the provisions on the environment in the proposed federal government under the Duterte administration.

Atty. Galahad Pe Benito of Greenresearch discussed the said provisions one by one and related them to the already established environmental laws that we have. Leon Dulce of Kalikasan People’s Network on the other hand, explained the direct impacts of the new provisions to the most marginalized groups connected to the environment like the small-scale miners, the farmers and the indigenous peoples.

Now on its 29th year, Kamayan Para sa Kalikasan Forum has become an institutionalized platform since March 1990 that enables NGO and government representatives, the media, students, teachers, church groups, and concerned citizens to discuss pressing environmental issues in the country. This month’s forum is sponsored by Kamayan Restaurant and Forest Foundation.
