After Sendong, 10 things we must do - Rappler

This is a very excellent list of things that need to be done. What is unfortunate though is that a lot of your recommendations are things we all know about for some time now and should have been implemented a while back by concerned agencies and officials. The lack of political will is a crucial element lacking in this matter. With all the natural disasters that have befallen the Philippines in recent years, it appears we continually fail to learn our lessons and keep repeating mistakes or ignoring things that need to be done, such as your recommendations. Climate change is indeed a game changer and is going to make this issue a lot more challenging in the years to come, yet climate change is nothing new. It has been a global issue for more than 5 years now. It is good that you bring this all up again, there is no harm in constantly reminding ourselves of what needs to get done.
