With cyclones and other calamities likely to hit at this time of the year, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson is seeking a review of the Philippine Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Act of 2010 to make it more responsive in dealing with the “new normal” effects of climate change.

In Senate Resolution No. 10, Lacson said it is time for the Congressional Oversight Committee on Philippine Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Act of 2010 to find ways to improve the law and its implementation.

“(T)here is a need to revisit the Act in order determine its effectivity and relevance when it comes to the country’s response to the challenges of the ‘new normal’ and the alarming rate of climate change, and to propose possible remedial measures,” said Lacson, who served as Presidential Assistant for Rehabilitation and Recovery from December 2013 to February 2015.  Continue reading “Lacson pushes review of disaster management law to cope with ‘new normal’”

Lupang panambak ng China sa mga isla sa WPS kakalkalin ni Ping

Tutuklasin ng Mataas na Kapulungan ng Kongreso kung may katotohanan ang mga balitang sa nasasakupan ng Pilipinas, partikular sa lalawigan ng Zambales nanggaling ang mga lupang ginamit upang malikha ng China ang mga artipisyal na isla sa loob ng pinagtatalunang lugar sa West Philippine Sea.

Ito ay sa pamamagitan ng Senate Resolution No. 92 na inakda at isinumite ni Senador Panfilo Lacson na naglalayong lumikha ng mga panuntunan upang hindi na muling maulit ang nabanggit na pangyayari, bunga na rin ng mga impormasyong kung ilang bundok umano ang napatag sa lalawigan kasabay ng pagkakabunyag sa pagtatambak ng mga tsino sa mga isla.

Ayon kay Lacson, layon din ng kanyang resolusyon na makalikha ng mga karagdagan o panibagong alituntuning pangkalikasan ang pamahalaan upang higit na maprotektahan ang mga ito sa mas malalang pag-abuso.  Continue reading “Lupang panambak ng China sa mga isla sa WPS kakalkalin ni Ping”
