It really is a bit refreshing that the Aquino administration strengthened and implemented the CCC. However, a major concern I have is whether or not their actions would be carried out in the long run. This is after all, a long struggle. A one-billion peso budget might seem enough for some but in my opinion, I strongly believe that a portion of that sum will eventually disappear "mysteriously" like almost all of the budget allocations in our country. Therefore, I strongly agree that we must keep strict records of all the costs that come from this budget. Strong relations by the CCC to different Oversight Agencies and Organizations, and LGUs will keep the budget running efficient.

Another point in The World Bank report is to broaden our skills and knowledge on what we can do to dampen the climate change crisis we face today. We are all taught that it is our responsibility to take care of our environment but how much do we really know besides recycling and proper waste disposal? We can all do so much more if only each and every one of us is enlightened properly on the wide list of methods we can do to really help save our environment. We all know climate change is upon us. I can attest that the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we consume is very different just ten years ago. The storms we'rent as destructive as the ones we consider now as "normal" storms. There is simply nothing normal about it and we must open our eyes to what is really happening around us. The next time we wonder why it's raining so hard in the summer months, we must see it as a reminder of a slow but disastrous change.
