As part of the machinery that makes things happen in our environment and natural resources,  we in the Department of Environment and Natural Resources particularly in these parts of the country have to do our mandate.  We belong to a very critical department. 

 

We have been given the mandate to fulfill. Together with our clienteles,  the people, on us lies our country’s  environmental fate—the air that we breath,  the water that sustains ourselves and the plants and animals,  our land, our forests, our minerals.  We have a say into all facets of man’s daily existence on this fragile earth.  We have to perform and perform well our mandate for us and for our fellow countrymen.

 

The contents of this website therefore are the data and facts obtaining in this, our beautiful Cordillera region.  The statistics contained herein came from our latest data bases, some of which were sourced from other government agencies and other instrumentalities.

 

Our aim of making this web site was not only to accomplish our set targets and inform the people about the environment and natural resources’ situationer  but we have to make sure that we are doing things for the benefit not only of the people but most especially the environment.  Thus making sure that life continues on this,  our Mother Earth.

 

We continued to look for ways and means to pursue our mandate.  Along the way, we  came upon and initiated some innovations.  We have responded to what the people and the environment need.  We have initiated projects that we see will make life a little better in the future. From our field personnel to our regional managers, the support staff and our technical people,  all did their parts wholeheartedly.  We could say that we have done our share! We did our assigned tasks and we did it competently.

 

At the end of the day,  we hope that our data could be understood well and be of use by the browser in whatever purpose it maybe.

 

We are not stopping from there though,   we continue to network with other agencies,  non-government organizations, local government units, our leaders and the people themselves into looking for ways and means to improve our environmental situation and to continue to promote the objectives of sustainable development.

 

With God’s grace and the continuing belief and support of our leaders in our abilities to implement  programs and projects for the betterment of our environment,  we shall continue to give our best,  to serve and to perform to  the Cordilleras and the Filipino nation!

Reforestation areas to be developed as green economy models

 

 

A “Green Economy Model” (GEMs) orientation for the selected 2017 e-NGP PO partners was conducted particularly to the members of the Bulo Farmers Association based in Bulo, Tabuk City, Kalinga in February 26, 2018.

The activity was facilitated by Miss Melanie M. Pis-oy and Ms. Alma I. Dajoya from the DENR Regional Office together with Ms. Sheila B. Bakidan, Ms. Novalyn Dacay-og, Ms. Libertee Da-o, and Ms. Hazel Gay Lay-asan, Forestry Technicians of CENRO Tabuk.

Since it is a mandate of the law to ensure that gender and equality shall always be incorporated in every activity and in introducing development intervention inclusive growth, Ms. Pis-oy discussed the topic on Gender and Development. She emphasized that gender equality is vital in every development endeavor.  In every work, more hands are needed, men and women need to be empowered too.

The GEM was presented by Ms. Dajoya who discussed the guidelines in the operation and transition of the DENR’s programs and projects into GEMs as provided by DAO 2017-08.

Dajoya emphasized that GEMs aim to transform DENR programs and projects into GEMs where household members create sustainable goods and services for the rehabilitation of degraded ecosystems and create viable community enterprises where households are the focal members and players in creating value-added environmental products and services.  It also moves to accelerate the rehabilitation of degraded ecosystems and promote the protection of the environment through the creation of green jobs.

Based from the objectives, GEM is a holistic approach in forest conservation. The Department is now shifting into a new paradigm from its usual practice that restoration of degraded forest land is merely through reforestation and agro-forestry. With this new program, the DENR together with the Community people will treat hills and mountains especially the e-NGP sites as enterprises in accordance with the plans and interest of the PO members.

The main output of the activity was to come up with a business plan. It was agreed by the group that they will go into wine production, chili paste, and banana chips processing. The needed raw data will be identified by the PO members while the drafting of the business proposal and business plan were assigned to the PO president with the assistance of GEM Focal person and assigned site manager. It is therefore important that the DENR personnel and employees shall possess the skills and passion to lead the POs in the realization of the GEM ultimate goals in the pursuit of sustainable economical and ecological development.

After the orientation, some of the participants visited the 2017 e-NGP as proposed GEMs site.  Their plantation was intercropped with agri-crops such as pegion pea, banana, beans and monggo.  With the collaboration of the members of the PO and the technical assistance by the DENR Technicians, the people will benefit from their reforestation areas.|SBakidan
