Environment above money in Davao – Avila

In Davao City, environmental protection is a higher priority more than economics, City Councilor Leo Avila III said.

Avila said the city has committed to make environmental protection a priority because it is a sustainable option. “It is for the long run,” he said.

Avila, who chairs the city council’s committee on environment and natural resources, said the city government is sending a “strong message” that the environment is more important than income.

He said Davao has a strong sense of responsibility and accountability that is why the city is ahead in environmental protection.

Avila said Mayor Rodrigo Duterte has expressed a bias for environmental protection. “If you want a law passed on environment protection, pass it now (during Duterte’s term),” Avila said. To be updated.
