Teddy Baguilat calls for more invesments in agriculture, climate change adaptation

Nov 9, 2018 @ 16:21

Ifugao Representative Teddy Baguilat said there is a need for increased investments in agriculture development and climate change adaptation and mitigation amid the continued adverse effects of natural disasters on the country’s economy.

The country’s agricultural production and gross domestic product has been severely affected by the recent typhoons that have battered Northern Luzon.

Among Baguilat’s suggestions include investments in irrigation and watershed protection.

“No real economic growth is possible if sustainable development goals are not equally observed,” Baguilat said.

“What sense is profit if people and the planet are left behind?,” he asked.
