The Philippines must incorporate climate change in its long-term development plans, an economist from the University of the Philippines said on Thursday.         

Dr. Toby Monsod of the UP School of Economics said climate change poses serious threats to a country's economic growth. 

"Rethink the Medium Term Development Plan. Rethink or review the parameters used to make that plan, and to ensure that new information, climate information, which is actually not new, is properly integrated," Monsod said in an interview with ANC.
