“The Philippine Army’s Program for Peace and Development” is the topic for Kalikasan, Kaunlaran! (KK!) talk show on DZRH-AM radio, on March 12, Wed., at its new prime-time slot, 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

“I think the environment should be put in the category of our national security.  Defense of our resources is just as important as defense abroad.  Otherwise what is there to defend?” That quote, from actor and environment champion Robert Redford, challenges our armed forces and all of us to defend the environment.  Indeed, surviving threats from external forces will be meaningless if the air we breathe or the water we drink is already poisoned by pollution.

But the Philippine Army does more than defending our resources and us. It also applies a socio-economic upliftment strategy for combating insurgency. In some far-flung areas, the armed forces are the only representatives of government who come in close contact with the poor and the treacherous environment. Among them are many silent heroes, protecting national security, our environment, and helping the poor safely bring “food on the table.”

On March 16, 2008, the Philippine Army will launch its latest nationwide project, which EARTH Institute Asia, Inc., actively supports—the Malunggay Para sa Kalikasan, Kalusugan, Kapayapaan, at Kaunlaran (PA Malunggay K4) Project.
