The Los Baños Municipal Agriculture and Fishery Council (MAFC), headed by Rolflen Atienza, hosted the Provincial Agriculture and Fishery Council (PAFC) meeting last February 9 at the Los Baños New Municipal Building.

The Laguna PAFC is composed of 30 members represented by 6 cities and 24 municipalities. The meeting focused on the compliance of AFCs on all projects to be endorsed for possible assistance if the AFCs pass through proper coordination and screening. The meeting also moved to create a Climate Change Committee on all levels of the AFCs in Region IV-A.

The highlight of the forum is the Climate Change Science presentation from the Los Baños Local Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation Program (LCCAMP) secretariat facilitated by Joan Rolusta.
