DOST-Project NOAH employs geospatial technologies to improve on weather monitoring, hazard mapping, and identifying locations of several critical facilities. Starting today, it also uses the same technology to provide update on Climate Change Commissioner Naderev “Yeb” Saño’s walk for a cause.
The commissioner commenced his walk this morning at the Rizal Park Luneta, Manila and will continue the 40-day journey amounting to 1,000 kilometers until he reaches Tacloban City on November 8, in time for the first anniversary of Typhoon Yolanda landfall. The campaign called “Climate Walk, A People’s Walk for Climate Justice” aims to spread awareness to the destructive nature of climate change and its effect, experienced first-hand by Filipinos during last year’s devastation in the Visayas due to storm surge brought about by Typhoon Yolanda.
Visit the official website of the campaign to know more about the activity.
