C limate change, Corruption, & Criminality are three of the most-important issues affecting the Philippines today.  Media reports show that countries that have low level of corruption and criminality, such as Switzerland, are also leading in addressing the climate-change issue. It may be just a coincidence that it happens to be so. Or such countries are able to use their resources that other countries lose to corruption and criminality, more effectively for mitigating and adapting to climate change, possibly the biggest global issue that does not yet have the proper attention that it deserves from local to national governments.


The Philippines, with her large NGO community, has been actively involved in regional and international discussions on climate change. But how much work has been actually done on it, as well as on corruption and criminality?


EARTH Institute Asia hopes that the political campaign for the coming election will give due attention to these three Cs. Hear about the issues and challenges, the opportunities and constraints, and the measures that are being taken or planned by various public and private sector organizations.
