PB2021-09: Nature-Based Policies Towards Green Recovery: Mitigating the Impacts of Climate Change and Future Disease Outbreaks

Despite the enactment of environmental laws and policies, deforestation, pollution, and the severity of weather-related events in the Philippines have worsened over the years. The situation is compounded by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic which led to the increasing generation of medical wastes in the country. While the government is struggling to address the challenges brought about by degradation, climate change and the pandemic, this can be an opportunity for the Philippines to build back better through a green recovery pathway. This paper will try to identify key policy concerns in the areas of forestry, waste management, air quality, and climate change. It will also recommend nature-based policies in addressing these concerns, and provide solutions in mitigating the effects of climate change and prevent future disease outbreaks. The paper hopes to offer a new perspective to policymakers by promoting a green recovery pathway for the Philippines towards a healthier environment and a greener economy
