The City Government of Ligao, headed by Mayor Patricia Gonzalez-Alsua, has been recognized by the Environment and Natural Resources/ Environmental Management Bureau (DENR/ EMB) and Green Convergence as one of the LGU Eco Champions in the country for good environmental governance and best practices that will serve as good example for other LGUs.

LGU Eco Champions’ panel of judges and competent researchers were impressed by the leadership and environmental vision of Mayor Gonzalez-Alsua in the city. These efforts reflect the city’s compliance with the Philippine Environmental Laws and will be used by the DENR/ EMB for research that will help address the gaps in the implementation of environmental policies.

LGUs will be awarded during the First Philippine Environment Summit on February 9-11, 2016 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City |albay3d.blogspot.com
