Prof. Tony La Viña on rehabilitating Manila Bay

"It is time now for the Supreme Court to remand this case to the lower court for execution of its final order."

Prof. Tony La Viña comments on the road to rehabilitating Manila Bay with the government's weight behind the effort. In his column “Eagle Eyes” in the Manila Standard. An environmental policy expert and former DENR Undersecretary, La Viña  traces past efforts to clean up Manila Bay and avers that government does not have to start from scratch in doing its work on Manila Bay. He suggests that a 2011 Supreme Court Resolution on the matter might be a good starting point “now that the executive branch is giving the highest political priority to Manila Bay.” The Resolution directed various agencies to undertake tasks relevant to then cleaning up of the Bay.
