Making hard choices

Climate change is a global issue, and it is up to Filipinos themselves “to make the hard choices for us to be resilient.” Ferdz dela Cruz, former chief executive officer of Manila Water Company, Inc. (top), emphasized the urgency of the water security issue for Metro Manila and other major urban areas in the country, and batted for  “constructive dialog without the misinformation” at a media roundtable held last week by Lamudi. De la Cruz led speakers who talked about building resilient and sustainable cities, but reserved his best comments for the lack of long term solutions to water shortage and climate change.  At the round table were (from left) Bhavna Suresh, chief executive officer, Lamudi; Angela Ibay, head, climate and energy program of the World Wide Fund for Nature; James Buskowitz, chief executive officer of Buskowitz Group;  Amado de Jesus, vice chairman of the Philippine Green Building Initiative; JJ Fernandez, strategic management consultant of Menarco development corporation; Justine Santos-Sugay, director for resource development and communications of Habitat for Humanity; and Aina Cruz, marketing  manager, Lamudi.
