Photo exhibit on land use in the Philippines
The Campaign for Land Use Policy Now! Network (CLUP Now!) and the Office of Senator Loren Legarda on 10-17 December at the Philippine Senate. The photo exhibit, “YUTA: Limitadong Kabtangan” was a public awareness strategy demonstrating the impacts of inappropriate land use in the Philippines and the urgency for the passage of the National Land Use Act (NLUA) through photographs. Photos were selected from the photo contest, National Land Use Act: A Safer Future For All Of Us prior to the exhibit. The photos highlighted the effects of proper and improper use of land, impacts of disasters and climate change, food insecurity, sustainability and the need for a rational National Land Use Act.
Senator Loren Legarda, the Chair of the Committee on Environment and Natural Resources, officially opened the exhibit and delivered a speech stressing the need for the passage of the bill. Other legislators were also at the event to show their support.
ANGOC was a co-organizer.
