Catbalogan City qualifies for international environmental challenge

As the only city from Eastern Visayas, Catbalogan City qualifies for the 2017-2018 One Planet City Challenge (OPCC) organized by World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) in collaboration with ICLEI РLocal Government for Sustainability.

Formerly known as the Earth Hour City Challenge, the OPCC is a biennial global challenge that recognizes cities for developing infrastructure, housing, transport and mobility solutions to power the global transition to a low-carbon, climate-resilient future.

The Philippine qualifiers will now be part of the official list of global entries that will be evaluated by an international jury of experts on areas ranging from urban planning and transport to consumer behavior and energy systems.

National winners will be determined and one of those will be hailed as the global winner.

All winning cities will be featured in a global digital campaign designed to strengthen public support for city-led climate action.

Finalists of the OPCC, which was designed by WWF to mobilize action and support from cities in global climate efforts, including the goals now set forth by the Paris Agreement, will be announced in the second quarter of 2018.
