By Leslie D. Venzon
Malacanang on Wednesday assured that a government program is in place to deal with the impacts of the La Niña weather phenomenon.

Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. said it is implementing a comprehensive program on mitigating its harmful effects as part of the country's overall strategy on climate change resiliency.

"This covers agriculture, flood control and disaster risk reduction measures at the grassroots level," he said.

In the Philippines, La Niña is associated with anomalies in rainfall, temperature and tropical cyclone activities. (PNA)
