Beyond Survival: Super Typhoon Haima and the Paris Agreement

Chuck Baclagon

The Philippines always ranks in the top 5 most vulnerable countries in the world in various indices. One of the reasons for that that is on average, about 20 tropical cyclones enter Philippine waters annually, with eight or nine of them making landfall. The last quarter of the year signals the beginning of the typhoon season, where in the past decade we have seen a trend of ever-increasing and ever-intensifying typhoons hitting the archipelago.

Enough countries have signed on for the Paris agreement to go into effect. You would think the Philippines would be at the front of the line to sign the agreement but apparently it still hasn't ratified the agreement yet.
