Information : Climate Change Commission

I didn't know that there is a government agency or commission  called Climate Change Commission (CCC). I  thought we only have our PAGASA ( Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical Astronomical Services Administration ) on weather matters. I came across CCC when I was acknowledging the picture source on my previous blog entry Usec Naderev Sano, a commisioner and undersecretary of the Climate Change Commission. I got curious of the name of his office so I went to check their official website : . Indeed there is such an office and in fact under the Office of the President.

What is the CCC and what does it  do?

The COMMISSION shall be an independent and autonomous body and shall have the same status as that of a national government agency. It shall be attached to the Office of the President.
The Commission shall be the sole policy-making body of the government which shall be tasked to coordinate, monitor and evaluate the programs and action plans of the government relating to climate change pursuant to the provisions of this Act.
It shall formulate National Framework Strategy on Climate Change (NFSCC), National Climate Change Action Plan (NCCAP) and Local Climate Change Action Plan (LCCAP).

Now we know what  the Climate Change Commission is.

An afterthought : 
In the last Real Estate Broker Licensure Exam,  the examiners gave a lot of question on ecology, I have a hunch that they will be asking questions on climate change in the next exam after what had happened in Mindanao.
