LSPU joins 3-day eLCCAP seminar

The Laguna State Polytechnic University (LSPU) took part in the three-day seminar on Enhanced Local Climate Change Action Plan (eLCCAP) Formulation Training on Planning, Prioritizing, and Budgeting for the Pilot Local Government Units at the Amazing View Hotel and Resort, Mabitac, Laguna, May 21-24.

Headed by the eLCCAP Laguna Core team and Technical Working Group (TWG), the seminar aimed to empower all the pilot Local Government Units (LGUs) with the essential knowledge and skills to effectively develop, prioritize, and budget their eLCCAP. 

The core team assisted the LGUs of Mabitac, Liliw, and San Pedro in the mitigation process of Climate and Disaster Risk Assessment (CDRA) and Greenhouse gas intensity (GHGi) in their respective municipalities and cities.

This cyclical and interactive approach enables participants to evaluate and synchronize their community objectives with technical realities, ensuring the creation of comprehensive and integrated climate change initiatives that address vulnerabilities, prioritize at-risk sectors, and support broader sustainability goals in line with national frameworks and legislation.

According to Mr. Erwin Napiza, LSPU Director for Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (UDRRMO), the university continuously does its role in conducting research and interpreting the data that collected in every household as well as giving training to the different agencies in different municipalities in Laguna to raise public awareness to reduce the effects of climate change.

Also present in the said seminar were Mr. Edward Flores, Mr. Jeffrey Garcia, and Mr. John Michel Aquino from Laguna State Polytechnic University (LSPU), representatives from Laguna University-Community Extension Services Unit (LU), Laguna Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (PDRRMO), Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) IV-A and Laguna Provincial Government Environment and Natural Resources Office (PGENRO).
