Climate Stories in the Philippines
How does climate change look like in the Philippines?
As we celebrate Earth day 2022 with the theme of Invest in Our Planet, let’s take a look at how Philippines has been affected by the climate crisis.
With permission from the Oscar M. Lopez Center and ABS-CBN DocuCentral, we are sharing a documentary, Mga Kwento ng Klima that chronicles the lives of the Filipino people affected by the worsening climate crisis. It also shows how local communities, government agencies, and other organizations are championing climate resilient projects inspiring its viewers to take action for the environment.
Mga Kwento ng Klima (2019)
Mga Kwento ng Klima is an award-winning documentary chronicling climate change in the context of the Filipino experience, co-produced by Oscar M. Lopez Center and ABS-CBN DocuCentral in 2019.
Taking six months to produce, the OML Center and the ABS-CBN DocuCentral team visited areas gravely impacted by climate change, as well as areas soon to be affected by it, harnessing narratives of survival and adaptation strategies.
As part of the development of the documentary, the OML Center held several mini-workshops with multi-sectoral stakeholders on themes surrounding climate change, including culture, land use, water and seascape, policy and public service, economy, and risks to sectors and industry, among others.
Mga Kwento ng Klima first aired on ABS-CBN’s “Sunday’s Best” on November 24, 2019.
