“Covid-19 in the Philippines: Personal Stories”

My work, my lifestyle in a farm, and my digital lifestyle

Violeta Imperial lives in Las Pinas City and a passionate traveller. She is a corporate social responsibility specialist and a project developer as well as an ecotravel coordinator. And contributed to the e-book Covid-19 in the Philippines

Kindle edition is now available on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B094SHQRWN/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=amazon+suresh+nanwani+covid-19+in+the+philippines&qid=1620888311&sr=8-1

Camiguin Island, view from white island

Traveling is one of my learning platforms. As an EcoTravel Coordinator, it has always been a great pleasure to serve my family, travel buddies and clients with my own brand of tender loving care. I consider them as a great source of life’s inspiration that fuels my ambition to be the best in my field. They are an excellent source of life’s inspiring insights and lessons. When I learned about the virus last January 2020, I prayed that it would not spread through Asia. I could still remember SARS in South America and MERS in the Middle East, and it’s devastating effects on the travel industry. While waiting for the government advice or World Health Organization (WHO), last January, I continued organizing trips to Baler beach, Camiguin Island, Cagayan de Oro (CDO); Tree plantings event like Sasmuan Mangroves, Tanay Tree Planting, Batangas and Bulacan mangrove tree planting; company outing and team building, and special events like Binondo New Year, and La Union Turtle Conservation.

Philippine Environment Summit in Cagayan De Oro

The WHO officially declared that Covid-19 was a pandemic, one week before the Philippine Environment Summit in Cagayan de Oro (CDO) February 26 to 28, 2020. Both Green Convergence, the summit organizer and local government unit (LGU) of CDO contemplated whether to push through with the event or not. As one of the presenters, I wanted the event to push through for two reasons: (a) I want to update the participants regarding the prevailing climate change situations in the country, the current  and potential solutions in addressing the issues presented and on a more personal level; and (b) I wanted to see the mangrove forest in Misamis Province and scuba dive in Camiguin Island.

3rd Philippine Environmental Summit

I was elated that the event pushed through, though I have experienced safety protocols such as temperature checks and use of foot baths for the first time at Camiguin Port. In addition, the summit organizers included vitamins and sanitizers in their conference kits. The summit was a big success with so many students and senior citizens in attendance, despite anxiety in the air. It was a strong testament that we do not live in fear.

Humbling Malibik-libik Falls

I’ve been wanting to go to Malibik-libik falls since I saw the signage, every time I do my walking habit. I’m was asking the locals, who can bring me there, but everybody discouraged me to go. And on my part, I can only go there earliest in the morning as one of my daily walking routines, but I have 6:30 AM Mass to attend to daily. When the novena mass for the Consecration of St. Joseph started, Fr. Eric moved the mass to 4 PM. Meaning, I can do the waterfalls in the morning and I can do it alone. I am an independent sanguine introvert. 


I got my maps.me app on my phone, and saw that it is only less than 5km one way, much shorter than my walk the day before. I decided to go, got my map, trek shoes, and water. I started at 5:30 AM praying the rosary on the radio at 94.7 FM and praying for safety and protection. I am taking photos of every fork road to double-check I am on the right trail. I found a house at the end of the road, looked for some people to confirm for direction but found nobody. Trusted my map again, I looked for a battered trail, which is an indicator of a clear way to the falls and irresponsible tourism. I found it and some trash along the way which assured me, I am on the right trail going down. It is steep and I started to miss mountain climbing with a full backpack.  A met another fork, it was easy to decide which one to take, not because of the sound of the waterfalls but because of some trash along the way which is mostly local junk food. 


The steep trail is sooooo easy, so opposite of what everybody is saying that it is sooooo hard and too far and too dangerous. Maybe because I am a mountaineer, (not the Facebook kind of mountaineers), I started to feel prideful and want to show all those who discouraged me to go, that I can do this alone. The trail turned into boulders and I am not into bouldering. Fear started to creep in because some of the rocks have slippery algae, what if I slip and fell and nobody knows. I can already see the top of the waterfalls, so I continue with extra careful steps. Until I arrived on the part where I need to do a big step on a rock with a wide gap, with a vine to hang on. With one wrong step, I can fall to an estimate of 8 ft deep rocks below. I saw, two scenarios, I can make it or I might fall, and the damsel in distress in me won. With all humility, I turned back, surrendered to GOD that His will, will always be done. The scenario taught me to be humble that sometimes I do need other people’s help. I can always go back with my beloved travel buddies which by the way was with me 2days ago doing Maragondon travel research.

Feeling a bit down, a bit humiliated, and sad while walking back up, consoling myself that I can always come back. Humbled by the rock, I am humbled by God to need other people. 

And halfway back, I suddenly heard somebody singing a happy song that I cannot understand. I stopped and waited and a gentleman appeared. He is Lakay Jam Neri, a vlogger (JamJam Chronicle) from Manila, also wandering alone and also his first time on the falls. GOD works in a mysterious way, we both made it to the waterfalls, enjoyed the serenity of the place, swim to the fullest, and took videos. I taught him a bit about mountain climbing and outdoor water safety and he taught me a bit on an intro to video taking. 


After swimming, we decided to have a quiet time with GOD with nature. Before we can take our sit on our chosen rock, a group of bikers from Cavite came. They asked us about the falls, depth of swim area, and temperature of the water. Until somebody blasted music with all entitlement of no respect. That was our sign to leave. 


As gratitude to Jam, I offered to treat him to the “Puto-bungbong ng Bayan” at the Cora’s Carinderia by the Corner who can also serve the most traditional delicacies of Bailen. I also showed him Tala River, close to swimming, but open for laundry ha ha ha ha.  


He is not Catholic, but God put everything into perfect places. With all my pridefulness, God humbled me and brought out the damsel in distress in me. He gave me more than what I want and need, more than what I prayed for.

The Philippines is rich in natural resources, number one in marine biodiversity; with the fourth longest coastline in the world; number five in natural flora and fauna, and in all other mineral resources. We Filipinos, especially in the tourism industry, who use nature as a tourism destination, should exert more effort in preserving and enhancing our natural environment and resources, respecting the local host communities, and keeping the tourism safe in natural settings.

Sea Level Rise (SLR)

The current situation of environmental degradation, closely connected to human, ethical and social degradation (Encyclical Laudato Si’, nn. 48, 56, 122) Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands are in danger from the impact of climate change sea-level rise due to melting ice caps, unsustainable coastal development, abundant low-lying areas, reliance on the agricultural sector, super typhoons and over-dependence upon natural resources.

The sea-level rise has already begun in the Southeast Asia and Pacific Islands region: 

  • The average annual surface temperatures in the region increased by 0.5-1.1 °C during the period which brings stronger severe typhoons. 
  • Sea level is rising, and the magnitude varies regionally. During the period 1993-2001, the largest increases in sea level (15-25 mm per year) in the region occurred near Indonesia and the Philippines, while only moderate changes (0-10 mm per year) occurred along the coasts.
  • Sea level will continue to rise, although will vary in different regions, by 30 to 40 cm before the end of the 21st century. 

The Impacts of Sea Level Rise. 

The Southeast Asian region and the Pacific, are already suffering from the devastating effects of rising sea level, including saltwater intrusion into estuaries and aquifers, coastal erosion, displacement of wetlands and lowlands, degradation of coastal agricultural areas, and increased susceptibility to coastal storms. These effects are interrelated with impacts on agriculture, natural disasters, river deltas, water resources, coastal ecosystems, human livelihoods and infrastructure, and national security. Sea level rise has overarching socioeconomic impacts as well, due to loss in income associated with the degradation of agricultural areas and loss of housing associated with coastal inundation, for example. 

Impact of Sea Level Rise on Tourism. 

1-meter sea level rise would result in the loss or damage of 21 airports, inundation of land surrounding 35 ports, and at least 149 multi-million dollar tourism resorts damaged or lost in the Caribbean nation. (Rafat Ali) 

In the Philippines, Super Typhoon Yolanda (International Name: Haiyan) was one of the strongest and deadliest tropical cyclones that made landfall in the Philippines. Its effects were considered the true impacts of climate change, as thousands of livelihoods were disrupted and an equal number of lives were destroyed. (Micheal Fababier). The typhoons coming to the Philippines will get stronger and will have a harder impact not only to the tourism industry but also to the whole sector of society. 

Sea Level Rise impacts to the tourism industry and investments are infrastructure damage, business interruptions, damage to properties, beach and coastal erosion, reduced landscape aesthetic, dangerous water current in the coastal area, and lesser tourists.

Laudato Si 41 

All of this helps us to see that every intervention in nature can have consequences that are not immediately evident and that certain ways of exploiting resources prove costly in terms of degradation which ultimately reaches the ocean bed itself. 

Adaptation, Mitigation, and Risk Reduction Measures

  1. The urgent challenge to protect our common home includes a concern to bring the whole human family together to seek sustainable and integral development, for we know that things can change. (Laudato Si 13)
  2. Make Sustainable Tourism authentic by including science-based conservation projects in tourism destinations. Science solutions like massive mangrove tree planting the right species, with protection barriers, empowering the community to take ownership of taking care of the coastal area. Or Zero Plastic solutions and waste management. 
  3. And in the last scenario, migration is the last option. Climate change refugees will be adopted by open countries to live a new better life. Applying the new Encyclical Fratelli Tutti that nobody will be left behind.

Letter from the Future

Dear Lola Nature,

I love the way my grandparents call you, Mother Nature, maybe you loved and cared for nature so much. I and my siblings love seeing your photos with our grandparents during your travel time to the beach and the mountains. I am glad they met you during one of your nature trips and became great friends. They loved caring for nature also because of you. We learn to love and care for nature as well. Your conservation projects are very challenging during the time of corruption and pandemic, but you continued anyway. We are enjoying the mangrove forest and the mountains because of the tree plantings and reforestations you and my grandparents and friends did. There are clearer water now and less pollution. Almost all communities got to adapt to climate change and ready for the negative impacts in the future. All of the farms are organic now. The forest has increasing biodiversity and more medicinal plants are being discovered, protected and available to the society. Tourism transcends environment sustainability.

I and my friends are continuing what you have started. We also do reef reforestation so we have more fish to catch and to watch during our scuba diving. There are no more coal mining anymore because politicians are not greedy anymore. We are using clean and renewable energy. People live longer and healthier. Society is less materialistic and more prudent. 

Respect and politeness are everywhere. There are no corrupt politicians and greedy businessmen. Small and Medium enterprises are thriving. The orphanages are turned to school because everybody is adopted. Prison buildings are turned to sustainable work station because there are no crimes anymore.  

Ecumenical Fatih is everywhere respecting all religions and creations.

Lola Nature, I want my great-grandchildren to also have a better future. We will have a culture of caring for creation. They will start to plant trees and corals at the earliest age. They will respect nature and local fishing, farming, and Indigenous communities. Advanced studies in sustainable consumption and conservation are taught in grade school. 

Let’s go scuba diving on your 100th Birthday, see you soon.

Love

Intro to Climate Impact and Solutions

The Philippines is an archipelago with 7,641 located between mainland Asia and the Pacific Ocean. The location made my country the corridor for all the storm going to Asia coming from the Pacific Ocean. Our country is also on top of the world’s ring of fire which makes us a disaster-prone place. The main source of livelihood here is farming, fishing, BPO, tourism, and trading.

Climate change is a long-term shift in global or regional climate patterns. Often climate change refers specifically to the rise in global temperatures from the mid-20th century to the present. (National Geographic)

Climate change has severe impacts in my country

  1. We have El-Nino related drought that affected water supply and agriculture.

CCFarm

2. We are rich with very strong tropical storms that cause floods, flash floods, landslides, and storm surges.

CC Storm

3. The melting ice caps raise the sea-level causing salinity absorption on the agricultural land, drown the mangrove forest and habitats.

4. Extreme heat or cold monsoon also brings illness and malnutrition to the marginalized sector of society.

CC Health

5. Ecosystem imbalance due to severe heat or super typhoon can cause new diseases or can bring epidemic/pandemic to animals and humans

Adaptation measures and suggested solutions

  1. Our government created a Disaster Risk Reduction Management in every municipality. The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) have Enhanced National Greening Program (ENGP) with the goal of massive mangrove, bamboo and tree planting, rehabilitation and reforestation all over the country with the partnership to different farm and fishing communities.

71210748_10156809301713528_7902989972125253632_n

2. To help the farmers, they are encouraged to go organic to have less poisonous fertilizer and pesticide runoff to the river system and oceans. Use climate-ready seeds and cash crops to have a more resilient farm. Do tree planting, rehabilitation and reforestation to protect their watershed and have stronger soil hold. The rice or vegetable terraces are one of the flashflood proofing.

Bataan Mangrove Tree Planting

3. To help the fishing communities, the government is implementing an integrated coastal resources management framework.

4. The urban areas have green buildings and green spaces to increase cleaner air.

5. Home-base online jobs are increasing to lower the carbon footprints of traveling from office to work and back.

To stop the spread of infection, prosper in time of pandemic, save time and money from traumatic traffic

6. To have more green jobs, the academe should include green subjects in all of the university courses, make climate change part of the curriculum. Create more green courses to have greener graduates.

7. Investors are encouraged to create more green business, clean and renewable energies, and participate actively in corporate social responsibilities.

Corporate Social Responsibility (Shared Value) of volunteer groups thru mangrove and upland tree planting, rehabilitation, and reforestation strengthens the effort of the local fishing and farm community to have a more healthy and sustainable environment. 

My Climate Story

I Don’t Care About Creation

I started loving outdoors when I was a volunteer training of the Philippine National Red Cross during my healthier days. We are on a mountain search and rescue training going up Mt. Makiling in Lost Banos, Laguna. During the hiking or fun climb for me, I saw a very beautiful blue flower, the first time in my life. That flower made very hard training, easy for me. After the training, I started organizing fun climbs to Mt. Makiling to visit the flower and I started to also notice other beautiful creations on the mountain. Every time I come back, the bloom of the flower is getting lesser.

Jade vine

One of my assignment as a volunteer First Aider is to serve at the Nature Camp of Conserving for Tomorrow Foundation, Inc. (CFTFI) And I was introduced to conservation, global warming, care for creation by Miriam PEACE of Miriam College and my biggest influencer is Dr. Donna Paz Reyes, Ph.D. I volunteered to serve other CFTFI Nature Camps all over the Philippines because I believe in environmental education and the noble endeavor they are teaching.

Calatagan Mangroves CSR Tree Planting

So inspired, I started my own environmental NGO called Nature Awareness and Conservation NGO (NACNGO), promoting community and nature-based ecotourism. Most of the trips are awareness activities. Along the way, I continue to attend different summits, conferences, and forums focused on the environment, conservation, and sustainable development. And in one or two of the big environment events, I learned about Vice President Al Gore, climate change, and the impact on the people, environment, and future. The climate change awareness expanded NACNGO expanded the endeavor to provide Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR Shared Value) programs by coastal and upland tree planting, rehabilitation, and reforestation.

Bulakan Mangrove Tree Planting

We partner up with different fishing and farming communities that support the Enhanced National Greening Program (ENGP) of the Department of Environment and National Resources (DENR). And we provide CSR Shared value to different groups like companies and corporations, Government offices and attached agencies, schools and private organizations. The fishing and farming communities provide for the seedlings to be planted and lunch after an additional source of livelihood. This way, they have the extra money in the time of monsoon season when it’s too dangerous for them to work.  Sometimes, after the tree planting and lunch with the community, the activity extends to community immersion where volunteer tree planters spend fellowship time and donate fishing or farming equipment.  Presently we have 16 community partners doing the mangrove and upland tree planting, reforestation, and rehabilitation. The community makes sure that all the planted trees are protected because it will protect them and everybody in the future.

Alaminos Mangrove Tree Planting

And then I learn about Vice President Al Gore,  Climate Reality Leadership Global Training last 2016 in the Philippines. Wasn’t able to attend the training because I am attending the Climate Change Business Summit in Asia Development Bank. So I waited for another CRL training in Asia. 2020 we launched the Extended CSR Program “Adopt a community and conservation site ” for 3 to 5 onwards for a more sustainable commitment. And covid19 came CSR Shared Value operation stopped to prevent the contaminations, at the same time the CRL moved the training online and was blessed to join. The Enhanced National Greening Programs still continue at the community level, with no volunteer tree planters. Meanwhile, will be busy with the new opportunities from Climate Reality and from the Laudato Si Animators Training. At the end of this all, I am hoping for a better greener and more sustainable society we have.

CSR Shared Value and Pandemic 2020

Climate Reality Leadership Global Training 2020

I missed the CRLGT here in the Philippines last 2017 (I think), I was attending the Asia Development Bank event on Sustainable Business Forum. I am waiting for a schedule of training in South East Asia so I can attend personally, physically. And 2020, still waiting, Covid19 virus came.

I was working as a Corporate Social Responsibility (Shared Value) Program Provider at Nature Awareness and Conservation NGO. CSR or Shared Values are group activities that helps in the conservation of environment and outreach programs to the marginalized sector of the community or less fortunate usually done in one day. We provide CSR needs of different corporations and companies, private groups and NGOs, Government Organizations and agencies, religious groups and academes. Most of the activities are coastal mangrove or forest tree planting, rehabilitation and reforestation. In the coastal area, we partner up with the peoples organization of fisher folks and on the upland we partner up with the organized farmers.

Calatagan Mangroves
Empowering the fishing communities to take care of the mangrove protected areas will give them more livelihood to catch more fish, shrimps and crabs. The CSR gives them extra earning from selling mangrove propagules and assisting in the tree planting. This way they have supplementary livelihood in time of monsoon season where they cannot get to fish because of strong waves and storm surges. Earning by protecting the mangroves prevents them to do illegal and unsustainable fishing activities.

Empowering the farming communities to take care of the reforestation will give them more livelihood to harvest more fruits to sell in the market. The CSR gives them extra income by selling seedlings and guiding in the tree planting. This way they have savings in time of typhoon seasons. Earning additional income by protecting the reforestation prevents them to hunt and do logging.

Biak Na Bato Tree Planting

We are already woking with 16 fishing and farming communities. They are organized and formed by Department of Environment and Natural Resources, a conservation agency of the Philippine government. Activity usually starts on the bus from Manila giving environment education on mangrove/forest ecosystem and biodiversity. A lecture why the CSR is very important and the impacts to all stakeholders is also part of the environment education. On the site, the fishing and farming leaders will give orientation about the community involvement on the conservation program. Sometimes after the tree planting the volunteer tree-planters extends the activity to an outreach program to the local communities by eating lunch with the locals and donating fishing or farming needs. Sometimes the group of volunteers extends the activities to a team building the next day.

Why my advocacy is important to climate change adaptation and risk reduction measure will be on Blog 3

And Covid19 virus came and burst the whole bubble. CSR program has to stop to prevent contaminations. On the community level they are still planting and protecting the trees. Actually they are feeding those who are badly affected in the city with continuous supply of fresh catch and harvest.

This is where I am now before the Climate Reality Leadership Global Training. Hoping I can pick up fresh ideas and innovations during the training. I am grateful to all organizer for accepting my request to be included in the training. Hope I can also contribute to other leaders in the Philippines and around the world. Hope we can all find our niche to better normal during and after covid.

Will not let pandemic to stop me from caring for the earth and people. Pandemic will not be the reason for me, not to be successful in life in Jesus mighty name Amen

Bataan CSR Reforestation Shared Value

BATAAN ENGP Reforestation

Corporate Social Responsibility Shared Value

Supporting local farm community

 

Bataan National Park is a protected area of the Philippines located in the mountainous interior of Bataan province in the Central Luzon Region. Bataan National Park is covered by tropical jungle and mountain terrains with significant geological features such as rivers, springs and waterfalls. Pasukulan and Dunsulan falls are found within the park, as are important species of flowers and ground orchids. It is also home to several wild monkeys and other varieties of insects and birds.

Bataan has so many People’s Organization that composes of upland farming communities. The tree planting CSR provides alternative livelihood to the locals because they are supplying the seedlings from their nurseries. At the same time, they maintain and care for the planted trees after the volunteers left the area. Planting fruit trees is a sustainable and responsible investment, where volunteers can come back and do fruit picking in the future. Tree Planting CSR Shared Value is also a climate change adaptation and risk reduction measure.

The Angat Watershed Forest Reserve is a conservation area that protects the drainage basin in the southern Sierra Madre range north of Metro Manila in the Philippines where surface water empties into the Angat River and its tributaries. It is spread over an area of 62,309 hectares (153,970 acres) in the eastern portion of Bulacan and northern Rizal province at an altitude of between 490 and 1,206 metres (1,608 and 3,957 ft). The conservation area also extends to the provinces of Nueva Ecija and Quezon and is centered on an artificial lake created by the Angat Dam which, together with the Ipo Dam located 7.5 kilometres (4.7 mi) downstream, supply 97% of the water requirement of Metro Manila via an aqueduct system to the La Mesa Dam and Reservoir and the Balara Filtration Plant in Quezon City. The Angat Dam and Reservoir is also a major source of hydroelectricity for Metro Manila and surrounding provinces, contributing some 200 megawatts to the Luzon grid. The watershed is a popular birdwatching site and is a biodiversity hotspot containing most of the remaining closed-canopy forests in Central Luzon.
