BICUTAN, TAGUIG CITY –The National Academy of Science and Technology, Philippines (NAST PHL) conducted the NAST Environmental Science Award Paper Presentation and Awarding Ceremony and NAST Talent Search for Young Scientists Paper Presentation last April 21, 2023 (Friday) at the Eastwood Richmonde Hotel, Quezon City.
Dr. Dranreb Earl O. Juanico, PhD (Physics) of the Technological Institute of the Philippines was adjudged the winner of the 2023 NAST Environmental Science Award. He presented his winning research entitled “Does mangrove restoration imply coastal protection? A prospective study?” He discussed the coastal protection potential of mangroves by examining the “bio-shielding” effect against storm surges driven by category-5 winds in two coastal sites—Tacloban, Leyte, and Pan de Azucar, Iloilo. The study may help settle policy-oriented debates on whether governments, especially in the Philippines and Southeast Asia, must invest massively in coastal mangrove restoration for long-term community benefits.
