In Commemoration: Juanito Cambangay

ICLEI was saddened to learn of the sudden passing of a respected colleague from Bohol Province (Philippines). Attorney Juanito Cambangay, the former head of Planning and Development Department of Bohol Province (Philippines) suddenly passed away on 9 January 2008.  . Nitz – so called by his friends – was a core member of the local ecoBudget team, and a designated local government associate in the Philippines.  Furthermore, he was instrumental in the establishment of the ICLEI Southeast Asia Secretariat. His generous wisdom and professionalism resulted in the development of ecoBudget as an instrument for poverty alleviation and resource management. He was deeply convinced that any success in environmental protection and efficient use of resources needed to factor in poverty alleviation. ICLEI expresses its sympathy to Nitz's family and friends. Nitz, daghan salamat!  You will be remembered.
