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!

Capacitating the youth towards environmental management

 

Bangued, Abra – The DENR is the primary agency tasked to enforce environmental protection, conservation and management. In DENR-Abra, the top officials called on the youth of Abra to be the eco-ambassadors who will work with the office to attain its vision to have a sustainable and clean environment.

A total of fifty (50) students from the different schools in Abra attended recently the Lecture on Environment and Natural Resources Programs at the CENRO Bangued conference Hall.

Forester Shirley T. Leaño, the CENR Officer – CENRO Bangued welcomed the students and inspired them to become more sensitive on environmental matters. She said that they can make their homes and schools more environmental friendly by adopting eco-friendly practices such as recycling of different materials, tree planting and clean-up drives

Ianne April P. Bello, the Human Resource Management Officer discussed the vision, mission, mandate and the sustainable development goals of the DENR. Likewise, Rex B. Ballacillo, Ecosystems Management Specialist II, discussed the topic protected area and biodiversity, its importance and how to protect and manage them.

When the students were asked about Casamata Hill being a protected area, most of them were unaware of its proclamation. Mr. Ballacillo showed photos of endangered floras and faunas in the Philippines and cited mitigating measures.

Meanwhile, Kevin Haji F. Aguinaldo, the Youth Desk Officer of CENRO Bangued concluded the activity by discussing climate change and presented a video clip on its causes and effects. He encouraged the students to put into heart and mind all the lessons they have learned from lecture and to apply and enforce them at home and in school.

The youth are essential in the management of the environment. They represent almost half of the world’s population. Educating and engaging them in environmental protection not only creates direct impact on changing youth behaviors and attitudes, but possibly influences their parents, relatives and other community residents.|C.
