The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) here laid out its plans for building a more climate-resilient Central Luzon in line with the annual observance of the National Climate Change consciousness week this November 19-24, 2017, environment authorities said yesterday.

Francisco Milla, Jr., regional director of the DENR in Central Luzon said that November is a month not just to remember our departed loved ones during all souls day, but it is also a triple environmental celebration on Clean Air, National Environmental Awareness and Climate Change Consciousness.
