“The Philippines is a very important economy being an archipelago. So, we hope that these agreements can catalyze a lot more communities, initiatives, public policy, and corporate involvement in addressing and protecting our ecosystems,” Gim Huay said, according to a Palace statement.

Following this agreement, both the Philippines and the WEF will share best environmental practices with the communities, civil societies, and corporate sector.
