"UN STI Multi Stakeholder Meeting in New York"

PACIFICTECH, INC. - CATANDUANES STATE UNIVERSITY, PHILIPPINES & IUCN-CECPROF. 

DR. JIMMY MASAGCA Thank you very much Mr Moderator. 

Distinguished panelists Delegates.I am representing my NGO, Pacifictech, Inc.; my university, Catanduanes State University and the IUCN-CEC for SE Asia.During the Covid-19 pandemic, in November 1, 2020, the super typhoon Rolly (Goni) with 325 km per hour winds damaged/altered many natural systems particularly the mangroves and beach forest vegetation. 

These coastal marine systems are important the food systems, well-being and protection of the local people of the island as well as the whole Philippines.Innovations and Technologies for SDGs 1,2 and 16We would line to underline STI collaborative works on impacts of typhoons/tropical cyclonesSmall islands STI focus on involved on online or Tele-training on Crab Aquaculture, and tele-trading mangrove crabs and tele- management of mangrove rehabilitationSTI underline Synthetic biology for improved crab seeds or crablets for aquaculture;

We underline collaborative aquatic Food systems research projects in the university How to quickly scale-up

• We focus use “home grown” innovative technology and adapt emerging technology to local conditions of the islands for the local needs

• We emphasize programs to strengthen the nexus between SDGs (Water-Food-Energy) through the biennial Philippine National Biodiversity Meeting or BIOME (now on its 7th series this year, 2021 October in Catanduanes island)

• We emphasize Local legislation in the mangrove crab fisheries and industry through the ordinances in the islands• Raising awareness of local people, the children, youth women, girls and fisherfolks on mangrove crabs through university funded programs on citizen science through the program Sustainable Resources in Mangroves for Biodiversity Conservation SURMABIOCON (Crab Festival, Abaca Festival and Aquatic Food Festival)

"BIOME" FALLING WALLS FUTURE LEARNING FINALIST BERLIN FEST - DR. JIMMY T. MASAGCA

THE HISTORY OF BIOME (BIODIVERSITY MEETING) 

This is the original home of the PACIFICTECH RTIC CESSE, Inc., in Constantino, Virac, Catanduanes, Philippines. BIOME was born here and so with the CHILDMIND Project for children inspired by the 16th century logic St. Vincent Ferrer on Natural Supposition Theory and St. John Baptist de La Salle Educational Management Concept. SEDTEC (Science Education and Technology) Conference was also born here likewise the supporting Journals establishing here in the "Kubo" Science Talk here, where the "Payag Payag" Science lessons where also held in 2009-2013. Professor Estrella Tribiana, Professor Sonia Sapico, Dr. Sonia Torio, Dr. Junifer Berces, Prof. Linda Ta!an, Prof. Angel Mendoza were attending my early lessons in science writing, journal writing for the Journal of Pedagogy, Technology and Synergy (JPTS) and Journal of Biodiversity, Climate Change and Sustainable Development (JBCSD) now for consideration to be included in the Philippine e-journals.

The motivation for applying to be a Restoration Steward is to be able to further help the advocacy of promoting the importance of Restoration, Caring, Conservation, Preservation and Sustaining the MBFV habitat for coastal dwellers protection as biowalls and biobelts from storm surges, rising sea levels, torrential floods caused by climate change.

PISHOG

The PISHOG Garden Site is a vacant lot adjacent to Block 8, Lot 12 Gen Lim St. where the drainage pipe of the upper part of Block 8 flows downward to General Lim St and traversing Gen Ola St in Block 10 of Soldiers Hills 2 Subdivision (SH2), Las Piñas City MM.Since the site is unoccupied and an open space from 1982 (Soldiers Hills 2 construction time of builders and contractors) to present, the area serves as dumping site of thrash of adjacent homeowners. Tersy Flores who regularly tend the thrash for disposal to the roaming garbage trucks of Las Piñas, started converting the place into a mini-forest to discourage throwers of garbage. With the support of the subdivision and encouragemen of PACIFICTECH, PISHOG was conceptualized.With this simple project of PISHOG, it is visioned to inform children, youth, women, senior citizens, homeowners and adjacent communities on urban gardening and greening efforts for sustainable, safe and healthy environment.
