DENR 1 Conducts Orientation on FLUP

 

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources Region 1 (DENR 1) through its Conservation and Development Division (CDD) conducted a two-day re-orientation/ training workshop on Forest Land Use Planning (FLUP) last February 8-9, 2018 at the Sea and Sky Hotel and Restaurant, San Fernando City, La Union.

The training workshop was participated by the Regional Office Technical Working Group (TWG) and representatives from DENR 1 Field Offices. Its objective is to discuss/ re-echo the result of the recently held national workshop on January 16-19, 2018 at BSA Twin Tower, Mandaluyong City focusing on the different proceses to be observed and their enhancement to a better and efficient implementation of FLUP. It aims to orient the participants about the FLUP processes and for them to have a common understanding of the various forest planning activities and concepts in the preparation of the Forest Land Use Plan. This is also to capacitate the DENR staff in providing guidance and assistance to the LGUs and concerned stakeholders in FLUP formulation.

On the second day of workshop, DENR 1 Regional Director Reynulfo A Juan said during his message that, “One of the ten priority programs is on land management and Forest Land Use Plan is part of the land management priority of the Secretary. We don’t plan para lang sa DENR. We should take into consideration the local government kasi ito ang magiging basis nila to prepare at i-formulate ang kanilang Comprehensive Land Use Plan”.

FLUP is a document developed through iterative, transparent, accountable and participatory process to ensure the sustainable management of forests and forestslands providing environment, social and economic benefits to the society. Its objective is to build a concensus and develop recommendations on the best uses of forestlands including the important step of identifying open access areas and determining appropriate management and best resource managers for the open access areas.(RPAO)

DENR- I spearheads International Coastal Clean-up 2018 in Region- I

 

CABA, LA UNION – International Coastal Clean-up (ICC)  is the largest volunteer effort for our ocean’s health. Held annually every third of September, people around the world gather on beaches, coasts, rivers, waterways and underwater dive sites to remove trash and record information on the debris collected. Results will aid in better waste management policies, plans, product packaging designs and in rousing consciousness among people. This year’s ICC theme in the Philippines is, “ Tayo ang Solusyon sa Polusyon.” The 2018 ICC activities resemble the continuation of this year’s “ Environment Month Celebration” with the theme, “Beat Plastic Pollution,” the global awareness to reduce plastic wastes most particularly in our oceans.

In Ilocos Region , the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Region- I (DENR- I), spearheaded the clean- a- shore activities simultaneously held last September 22, 2018 in line with the observance of the International Clean- up embodied in the Presidential Proclamation No. 470. DENR- I key officials and personnel led the coastal clean- up activities in various coastal municipalities in the province of La Union. Each division of DENR- I office were assigned in the following respective areas; Office of the Regional Director, Regional Public Affairs Office (RPAO) and Legal Division- (Brgy. Wenceslao, Caba), Conservation and Development Division (CDD)- (Brgy. Taberna, Bauang), National Greening Program (NGP) and Finance Division (Brgy. Paratong 3 and 4, Bangar), Licensing, Patents and Deeds Division (LPDD), Survey Planning and Management Division (SMD) (Paratong Norte, Bangar), Enforcement Division, Administrative Division, Planning and Management Division (PMD) (Brgy. Samara, Aringay).

Personnel from various government line agencies, youth from the academe, local government units, coastal communities and volunteer groups from the province of La Union likewise, joined the coastal activities. Assigned participants in the event recorded the collected trashes and recorded/ consolidated in the ICC Ocean Trash Data Form.

Let us unite to beautify our beaches, coasts, and waterways, let us do our part to help save Mother Earth and be a part of the solution for our ocean’s health. ( G. Garcia- RPAO )
