    I have come to greatly admire the leadership of Senator Loren Legarda.

    Some of the legislation that she has not only introduced but enacted, are now being regarded as model for many other countries around the world. She has been a passionate advocate for many years and she is now in a position of great authority and influence in the Senate. I meet with a lot of leaders around the world who deal with the climate issue. It really is a genuine pleasure to work with Senator Legarda.

No other senator or high government official before you had understood how much culture, especially the arts, can contribute to a nation’s development. Best regards!

    May I just extend my congratulations to you for shepherding a climate change friendly budget, which is first in Philippine Budget history.

    I am glad that the 2016 National Budget is replete with specific provisions concerning climate change adaptation, mitigation and disaster reduction, as well as resiliency. You have stirred the bureaucracy into affirmative action for addressing the problems of climate change.

    Thank you, and I look forward to working with you for the betterment of the country and the world.

    –- Hon. Rodel Batocabe
