The Philippines is very low on the carbon emission scale and yet is one of the countries with the highest risk for experiencing issues from climate change. Tune in for my chat with Dann Diez, SEED4COM Founder and CEO, to hear how they are responding and what all of us can do.
Typhoons, flooding, solar lamps, and gardens
Let's talk issues and solutions with Dann Diez, founder of SEED4COM
- Responding to Typhoons Rolly & Ulysses with flooding at depths of 5 meters in the Luzon area. Click to learn how to donate.
- With every disaster: energy access, food, and communications are issues
- With flooding, lots of plastic trash washes us. Looking to build housing from eco trash with eco bricks
- Partnering with Eagle Scouts to build solar lamps. These are built and repaired in the communities
The Philippines is one of the most at-risk countries from the climate crisis, though they are low on carbon emission output. https://www.amnesty.org.uk/philippines-country-most-risk-climate-crisis
