CAPTION: Gloria Byenaventura holds up one of the leaflets being distributed to households to raise awareness about climate change impacts. She explains how the City Government’s involvement with ICLEI has been successful in shifting people's perceptions. Previously, climate change was perceived as an issue related to disaster risk reduction and management, but after receiving training from ICLEI, local government unit (LGU) officials’ ways of thinking have noticeably shifted. Climate change is now seen as a broader issue affecting all sectors, requiring an integrated, long-term approach that mainstreams climate change into all city plans. LOCATION: City Environmental Management Office, Marikina City, Philippines. INDIVIDUAL(S) PHOTOGRAPHED: Gloria Byenaventura.
