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!

DENR CAR to push through third party evaluation of CY 2013-2016 NGP plantation sites within 100has and above

 

Responding to the instruction that DENR CAR field offices to conduct briefing or reorientation to the concerned People’s Organizations/NGP Partners with sites covering an area of 100 hectares and above which is the subject of Third Party validation, CENRO Lagangilang headed by CENR Officer Engr. Gilberto Leo Tagura met in July 22, 2019 with the People’s Organizations (POs) within the coverage of CENRO Lagangilang, the Site Managers and Extension Officers.  During which, CENRO Tagura encouraged the members of the POs’ to be well-informed of the validation process and the preparatory activities they have to undertake prior to the conduct of validation proper.  Said validation may commence on August 5, 2019 in all the provinces of the Cordillera Region.

For the province of Abra there are about 44 sites that are subjected for evaluation by 3rd Party.  About 17 of these sites are under the jurisdiction of CENRO Lagangilang.  The evaluators will come from a private institution in UP Los Baños, Laguna- a National Government Organization.  Accordingly, the validators will adopt the random sampling method of validation wherein 5% of the total area will be selected at 1 hectare each strategically located.

The meeting was a successful one as the participant POs had willingly expressed their commitment to support not only the validation but also to perform the necessary preparatory and restoration activities particularly to portions of the plantations with low survival rates. Towards the end of the orientation, the DENR and the POs have agreed to team up for the restoration activities starting June 25, 2019 until the start of the validation activity.

The conduct of third party evaluation is a determining activity for the release of ten (10) percent retention fee on the condition that the plantation site will register a survival rate of 85% and above. However, it will not only deal with the payment of retention fee but rather purposely provide credible Monitoring and Evaluation result that underscores good and bad implementation practices and the facilitating or hindering factors that led to the present status of these plantations. Ultimately, it also aims to provide inputs for future crafting of relevant project implementation guidelines and policies.|C. Lagangilang, RBPineda
