Representatives from the ATI Information Services Division distribute free information materials on CRA and other agriculture-related topics during the Change the World Global Youth Summit 2020.

SAN FERNANDO CITY, Pampanga—Some youth leaders of the local government of Pampanga were introduced to ongoing efforts towards a climate-resilient agriculture (CRA) in the Change the World Global Youth Summit 2020.

Selected officers and members of the Sangguniang Kabataan Federation of Pampanga and local media partners were present during the summit. They received free information materials on CRA and other agriculture-related topics from the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) during the event.

CRA involves a set of science-based technologies intended to strengthen agricultural systems and make farming communities adaptable to the impacts of the changing climate.

The summit, organized by the Global Linkages for the Filipino Youth, aims to engage the youth in global issues related to climate change and start discussions on development programs towards mitigation and adaptation.

Department of Agriculture-Regional Field Office III Executive Director Crispulo Bautista, Jr. also shared some climate change interventions for the country’s agriculture sector.

Likewise, other stakeholders were present to establish a multi-sector participation for climate change. These include representatives from the Provincial Government of Pampanga, Climate Change Commission, Department of Tourism, Department of Trade and Industry, and Department of Science and Technology Central Luzon.

The activity was held in partnership with the Department of Interior and Local Government-Pampanga at Kingsborough International Convention Center last January 10, 2020.
