Reef-to-Ridge Approach to Research on Impacts of Climate Change

Reef-to-Ridge Approach to Research on Impacts of Climate Change

La Union is a small strip of land bounded on the west by the sea and on the east by the foothills of the Cordillera range. The ecological tenet affirms: All things are connected. Thus whatever happens in the mountains affects the plains and seas. Whatever happens in the plains and seas impacts on the mountains and hill.
Coastal La Union has rich natural resources that can be maximized to provide food on the table of farmers, fisherfolk, women, elderly and children who are considered vulnerable to climate change. Fishponds and ricefields like these on the photo taken in Agoo give bountiful harvests if protected and nurtured.
