Energy Insights speaks with Liza Osorio from Oceana in the Philippines about the impacts of LNG development on marine ecosystems and communities nearby gas plants. Liza is an environmental lawyer and is the legal policy director of Oceana, Philippines.

She is also a professor at the University of Cebu School of Law. She was elected the first Asian Chairperson of the International Union for Conservation of Nature Academy of Environmental Law between 2019 and 2023.
