“1M 4 1B” or the 1Million Trees for 1Bataan is a collaborative project of the Provincial Government and the people of Bataan. All participants are required to register through the 1M 4 1B website. They can plant a tree in their backyard or any plantation site and upload geotagged photos using geocam application.
 
This project was conceptualized to empower environmental responsiveness through crowdsourcing and encourage everyone to take action in this shared responsibility. As industrialization takes place, the adverse environmental effects have to be considered. Growth in the economy alone cannot be the sole basis for success and progress. Ecological balance has to be taken into consideration and the future of the next generation must not be put in jeopardy.

The LILOAN COMMUNITY GOVERNANCE PROGRAM is a mechanism of providing inclusive community and grassroots participation in the implementation of government programs specifically towards providing equitable access to government services and economic opportunities, and pursuing sustainable development and protection of the environment.
 
Through the LILOAN COMMUNITY GOVERNANCE PROGRAM, the implementation of government services and delivery of government services has become more effective, direct, and economic. There are now great opportunities for meaningful life changes of ordinary citizens who have now a chance to climb out of poverty through the livelihood skills training provided under the Alternative Learning System. There are also countless opportunities for members of the community to contribute to environmental protection and sustainability through the tree-planting programs of the Municipality and the Liloan CARES Program. Giving the community opportunities to conserve the environment provides the greatest impact of all because its effects are inter-generational and felt not only by current residents of Liloan but for generations to come.

“CLean And Plant today, for a Climate Loving Education Adaptation of our Natural Environmental Resources tomorrow”
To address the impacts of climate change, the Municipality of Tagoloan in Misamis Oriental started its initiatives to help protect, conserve, and mitigate the impacts of climate change through disaster risk reduction. The Municipality conducted several initiatives such as coastal clean-up and Mangrove tree planting along the barangays of Baluarte and Casinglot.
 
Getting the community involved in a neighborhood cleanup can be a great way to create awareness in the area and lay the groundwork for future waste-reduction efforts. Conducting cleanup can also bring a sense of community and responsibility to keep homes and common areas safe and clean. Its visible results might lead to a heightened interest and involvement among women and men in reducing garbage thus preserving the environment.

IMELDA D. MENDOZA
 
 
Imelda is a farmer from Mountain Province whose family ventured into farming in 2001. From the previous experiences of local farmers, frost or locally known as “andap” is not common in the area and only occurs on farms along creeks or areas with less airflow. However, frost is now occurring in areas that were not previously affected.
 
Vegetable frosting is another face of climate change which is often disregarded, but the community has weathered frosting through the years. However, traditional measures still need science-based interventions to further develop means and techniques for the community and its people to be more resilient to the impacts and effects of frosting brought about by climate change.
