Mayor Abby Binay has declared a climate emergency in Makati City Friday following a meeting with officials of the Department of Science and Technology (DoST).

Binay said there are many grounds to back her declaration to achieve the environmental goals of Makati as a smart and green city.

The meeting between Makati local government and DoST officials tackled the use of electric vehicles, provision of healthy food for students, disaster-mitigation through technology, and hydroponics.

The mayor announced days back that e-buses will soon form part of the city’s transportation mix following the signing of a memorandum of agreement with the Korea International Cooperation Agency officials.

“Apart from the Makati Subway, this new public transport system is in line with our efforts to transform Makati into a smart city,” Binay said.

“We need to upgrade our systems because smart transportation is more convenient, safe, and cost-effective for both the city and commuters,” she pointed out.
