TEAM “WENDY” OF PENRO PANGASINAN CELEBRATES

WORLDS WETLANDS DAY

           

      February 2nd of every year is declared World Wetlands day with the theme “Wetlands for our future”. However, the DENR-PENRO Pangasinan celebrated the activity with their own created theme “WENDY” which means “Wetlands Exposure on Natures Day for Youth”.

          It can be recalled that on February 2, 1971, Ramsar Convention declared this month as the official celebration of Wetlands Day

          Aiming to further sustain continuously, conserve and preserve our wetlands resources, PENRO Pangasinan personnel headed by PENRO Officer Leduina Co together with CENRO Narciso Aragon of Alaminos and personnel from CENRO Urdaneta converged in Lingayen Pangasinan to celebrate this meaningful event.

          The occasion was highlighted by a visit to the Bangrin wetlands in Bani, Pangasinan, where able to view the different migratory birds and some small ducks.  According to CENRO Alaminos, there were 122 birds species that usually frequent the area. We were also able to see the fully grown mangroves with propagules ready for harvest.  There are 16 species mangroves planted in the area which are now fully grown and serves as the nestling places and sources of nourishment for the migratory birds. However, without the presence of these natural resources, the plight of their breeding grounds would be impossible. An island hopping/boating to the world famous park, Hundred Islands National Park (HINP) in Alaminos, Pangasinan ensued.

 

      The highlight of the event was the mangrove planting where a group of students from different educational institutions conscientiously participated in this activity at the Mangrove Farm in Alaminos City.

 

          PENRO Wendy Co in her message stressed that “the activity intends to contribute to the knowledge of the students or youths of different schools on what wetlands are and for them to explore these natural resources and to have knowledge of what DENR programs are doing towards their conservation and protection including familiarity with  the wildlife animals habiting the areas”.

           Janella Sarmiento, a student of University of Luzon, commented that the activity undertaken, like sightseeing, is much appreciated, because it was her first time to join the DENR in planting mangroves.  She also suggested that “IEC alone is not sufficient enough to learn about the importance of wetlands and awareness of other DENR programs, but the best way of educating them is for them to visit the concerned sites”.

 

         After the mangrove planting, the participants proceeded to Sual Pangasinan to visit the Sual Power Plant to see for themselves the mechanics on how the plant generates the power being distributed to the various places in Pangasinan.

          The Chief Operations of Sual Power Plant briefed the participants on the vision and mission of the power plant, and on how the power is radiating to various establishments in the area and serving other clients in other regions like CAR and NCR. Also, he discussed the process of how they discharge the water from the plant and showed the machinery generating power.  The plant Engineer also discussed how environment friendly their company is because they reuse and treat their water before it is released to the sea.     (A.

transparency seal


Transparency Seal explained

In National Budget Circular No. 542, issued on August 29, 2012, the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) reiterates compliance by all offices of the national government, including state universities and colleges, government-owned and controlled corporations, government financial institutions and local government units with Section 93, the Transparency Seal provision, of the General Appropriations Act of 2012, to wit:

“Sec. 93. Transparency Seal. To enhance transparency and enforce accountability, all national government agencies shall maintain a transparency seal on their official websites. The transparency seal shall contain the following information: (i) the agency’s mandates and functions, names of its officials with their position and designation, and contact information; (ii) annual reports, as required under National Budget Circular Nos. 507 and 507-A dated January 31, 2007 and June 12, 2007, respectively, for the last three (3) years; (iii) their respective approved budgets and corresponding targets immediately upon approval of this Act; (iv) major programs and projects categorized in accordance with the five key results areas under E.O. No. 43, s. 2011; (v) the program/projects beneficiaries as identified in the applicable special provisions; (vi) status of implementation and program/project evaluation and/or assessment reports; and (vii) annual procurement plan, contracts awarded and the name of contractors/suppliers/consultants.”

The Circular also declares that the respective heads of the agencies shall be responsible for ensuring compliance with this section.


The Circular directs that the Transparency Seal must be prominently displayed on the main page of the agency website, and linked to a page within the agency website that contains the aforementioned documents in downloadable format. 



Symbolism of the Transparency Seal 


A pearl that is buried inside a tightly-shut shell is practically worthless. Government information is a pearl, meant to be shared with the public in order to maximize its inherent value.


The Transparency Seal, depicted by a pearl shining out of an open shell, is a symbol of a policy shift towards openness in access to government information. On the one hand, it hopes to inspire Filipinos in the civil service to be more open to citizen engagement; on the other, it seeks to invite the Filipino citizenry to exercise their right to participate in governance.


This initiative is envisioned as a step in the right direction towards solidifying the position of the Philippines as the Pearl of the Orient – a shining example for democratic virtue in the region.

Sec. Cimatu visits Ilocos, lauds convergence initiative in Piddig

Sec. Cimatu visits Ilocos, lauds convergence initiative in Piddig

 

Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Secretary Roy Cimatu visited his hometown in Ilocos Norte recently and made a side trip to Piddig, where he met with local officials to gain more insights on the ongoing development of the town’s model project under the national convergence initiative on coffee farming.

Initiated by former two-term Piddig mayor Eddie Guillen, a civil engineer and current consultant of the Municipal Mayor’s Office, the 1,750-hectare coffee development project in Piddig is now gaining ground to achieve its ultimate purpose of alleviating poverty by providing sustainable livelihood, both in upland and lowland communities.

At first, Guillen recalled that he was able to convince the DENR to fund nurseries for lowland and highland coffee farming as part of its National Greening Program (NGP). The rest is history as other national government agencies and farmers’ organizations threw their support to this national convergence program for coffee.

How the local government unit of Piddig put together these government agencies to support this largest convergence initiate program is “impressive”, said Cimatu as he noted this can be replicated by other local government units nationwide through the enhanced NGP program.

“I was touched by this program and I am proud we have a (former) mayor like him (Guillen) who initiated it. It looks like a very simple program on NGP but there is more to it if we go beyond other concepts to make it successful,” Cimatu said.

After a short briefing at the municipal hall, Cimatu along with other national and regional top officials of the DENR went to Sitio Lammin to check on the coffee development project.

Describing his former work in the military as a tough job, he said being appointed by President Rodrigo Duterte as the new DENR Secretary is also tough as it came as a surprise to him but he told Ilocanos, “I will do my best to protect the environment”.

“The landscape is no longer the battle field but the landscape is nature itself. Perhaps, this is now my final chapter,” Cimatu added.
