The Oscar M. Lopez (OML) Center was envisioned as an institution that would support the generation of the science and technology needed for building resilient communities. They realized this vision by making sure that relevant climate science cuts across sectors, rather than sitting unused on a bookshelf. They aim to work closely with the decision-makers of business and policy, the groups with the greatest capacity for sustained climate action. They give them the information and the tools they need to make climate-smart risk management decisions. The OML Center is built on the belief that no Filipino should face climate challenges unprepared.
