Three Key Concerns1. Renewable resources are utilized beyond their regenerative capacity2. Nonrenewable resources are depleted with insufficient savings in man- made, human, or social capital3. The ―sink‖ capacity of the environment is overburdened by pollution, which in turn damages human health and ecosystem functions.
Occur naturally, but can be affected positively and negatively by human behavior If a forest is carefully replanted and allowed to grow, it can exist in balance. If the forest is cut down faster than it can grow back, then it will be used up quickly.
1. Serve as home to many of the organisms that live on the land2. Major contributors to recycling and cleaning the world supply of oxygen3. Provide wood, which is useful both as a construction material and as a fuel source.

Consumed faster than they can be produced resulting to its shortage Major contributor to air pollution
• Very rich potential for copper, gold, nickel, chromite and other metallic minerals through the commercial operation of numerous mines• Also abundant in non-metallic and industrial minerals such as marble, limestone, clays, feldspar, roc k aggregates, dolomite, guano, and other quarry resources
1. Environmental and social costs• Collateral damage of non-mineral resources such as freshwater and timber• Social divisiveness2. Institutional Capability• Ensure sustainability of the country’s fragile environment and natural resources• Establish standard parameters that will consider all relevant values (including non- market values)
3. ―The Fair Share‖• Revenues of large-scale mining are not declared properly• For 2000-2009, the contribution of mining excise taxes (large-scale, small scale, non- metallic) to total BIR excise tax collections is minimal, only about 0.7%
Decision-Making:Strategies, Policies and Plans
Optimize the use of limited land and water for the growing population Equity and sustainable development Produce specific products suitable to the land, water resources, and climate of specific areas in the country integration of environmental concerns through policies and programs
Environment Code, EO No. 446• phase out of leaded gasoline(2001)National Biodiversity Strategy and ActionPlan (NBSAP)• confront the problems and issues relating to the conservation of biodiversity
• to strengthen environmental protection, promote responsible mining and provide a more equitable revenue-sharing scheme amid the projected boom in the sector• bans mining in prime agricultural and fishing areas as well as in 78 designated eco- tourism sites• NO NEW mining permits would be approved until Congress passes a bill backing a mining tax increase to 5 percent royalty on mining companies gross earnings, compared with the current tax of 2

Impact of trade liberalization• Decrease in imported goods prices due to relaxation and reduction in tariff• Increase in consumer demand due to low prices and services• Increase in domestic competitiveness in international markets due to tariff reductions across national borders Most ASEAN Countries depend on agricultural sector.

It is made up of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen and varying amounts of sulphur. 1.2 Oil or Petroleum - was also formed more than 300 million years ago.

They do one thing just like plants; they can convert sunlight directly into stored energy. SOURCE: www.energyquest.ca.gov

1. Mindanao production capacity is 1,280 MWwhile the peak demand is 1,300 MW. Thus, a gapof 20MW but a reserve margin of 150MW must bemet as well; This means Mindanao needs 170MWmore2. We need RELIABLE power, REASONABLEpower, and LONG-TERM power3. In 2003, NPC’s debt already reached P1.24trillion, 24% of the total consolidated public sectordebt; even bigger than the GAA for that year; Thisexplains why the Congress passed the EPIRA SOURCE: P-Noy’s speech, Mindanao Power Summit, April 13, 2012, Davao City
4. Hydropower needs water; its availability andtimeliness of supply cannot be consideredconstant; situation is: demand is constant, butthe supply isn’t5. If Mindanao can no longer rely much on hydro-power to provide the base load, it needs morediverse mix of energy sources6. We have to get more plants here ($2-M per MW –average cost to construct a coal or natural gas powerplant; double for hydro) SOURCE: P-Noy’s speech, Mindanao Power Summit, April 13, 2012, Davao City
7. P170-M is needed to produce a MW of hydropower; How can you entice anyone to invest ifthe generating cost is more than the sellingcost?8. There are only two choices: pay a little morefor energy, or live with the rotating brownouts9. Circulating stories saying that Mindanaoans haveto pay P14/kWh more if it will install a more diversegeneration mix IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE SOURCE: P-Noy’s speech, Mindanao Power Summit, April 13, 2012, Davao City

Narito ang mga paraan para makatipid sa kuryente:1. I-low speed lamang ang electric fan dahil masmaliit ang konsumo nito kaysa sa hi-speed na elisi.2. Kung bibili ng aircon, alamin muna ang sukat ngkuwartong paglalagyan nito. Dapat angkop anghorse power nito sa sukat ng kuwarto dahil masmalaking konsumo sa kuryente ang mataas nahorsepower.3. Sa paggamit ng aircon, gumamit ng timer.Paandarin ito ng ilang oras lamang. Kung walangtimer ang aircon, orasan ito manually at kungmalamig na ang kuwarto, i-off na ito.
4. Hinaan lang ang freezer. Kung may yelo na angfreezer, i-defrost ito. Ang freezer na puno ng yelo ayisa sa mga dahilan ng mataas na konsumo ngkuryente.5. Tiyaking laging malinis ang bulb, fluorescent, okahit anong appliance. Ang maalikabok na applianceay nakadadagdag sa konsumo sa kuryente.6. I-unplug ang mga appliances na hindi namanginagamit.7. Huwag i-overcharge ang cell phone, laptop, obatteries.
8. I-off ang waterdispenser sa gabi.9. Sa pagbili ngref, piliin ang maypinakamataas naEnergy EfficiencyRatio (EER). SOURCE: DTI radio bits
