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.

I2 DENR1 apprehended 12 trucks loaded with ill-extracted mineral ores

DENR1 Apprehended 12 trucks loaded with ill-extracted mineral ores

 

DASOL, Pangasinan – DENR 1 Task Force swooped down and intercepted twelve ten wheeler trucks loaded with illegally extracted mineral ores here yesterday afternoon.

Backed up by local police here headed by Police Sr. Insp. Dennis Cabigat, the Task Force led by regional director Paquito T. Moreno, Jr. intercepted the trucks at barangay Poblacion while on their way to barangay Barlo.

Cabigat said the truck drivers immediately stopped and made no resistance when they were flagged down by policemen who were then simultaneously conducting operation “tokhang.”

Recently, DENR, the Philippine National Police and the Armed Forces of the Philippines signed a memorandum of agreement joining their forces to combat environmental crimes.  

One of the drivers, who requested not to be named, said that they would be paid one thousand pesos after delivering the mineral ores to a processing plant in Dasol, Pangasinan.

Municipal mayor Eric Versoza hailed the DENR Task Force for apprehending the twelve trucks saying that “these heavy trucks have been causing destruction of (our) municipal roads.”   

Moreno revealed that the mineral ores with a total volume of 3,000 metric tons were extracted from Cordon, Isabela and transported to barangay Barlo here for processing.

The ore transport permit (OTP), dated August 24, 2016 and to expire on September 23, 2016, bears the signatures of Noel Manuel Lopez, provincial administrator of Isabela and Geronimo Cabbacan, Jr., environment and natural resources officer.

Emerging from the Provincial Mining Regulatory Board Office of Isabela, the OTP has been issued in favor of Golden Summit Mining Corporation.

But Moreno claimed that the OTP is spurious saying that Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) Region 2 Director Mario Ancheta informed that “all small scale mining operations in the Province of Isabela have been suspended.”

Moreno said DENR personnel have been dispatched to coordinate with the provincial government of Isabela to verify the veracity of the OTP.

Meanwhile, Renato Rimando, Engineer 5 of MGB Region 1, said  the OTP appears valid on its face but there is inconsistency between the commodity indicated in the document and the actual contents of the apprehended trucks.

“Assuming that the OTP is valid, the commodity therein indicated is mine tailings and waste materials but upon random grab sampling, we discovered that the trucks are loaded with freshly broken mineralized rocks and ores,” said Rimando.

Rimando said the permittee committed “misdeclaration” of commodity impelling the apprehension of the trucks loaded with mineral ores.

MGB Region 1 headed by officer-in-charge regional director Carlos Tayag seized and took custody of the twelve trucks which, at present, are placed under the watch of the Dasol Police Office for safekeeping.

On Monday (September 5), confiscation hearing will be conducted to determine whether the mineral ores including the tolls, equipment and the twelve trucks will be confiscated in favor of the government.

Meanwhile, criminal charges for theft of minerals are to be filed against the officers of Golden Summit Mining Corp. along with the truck drivers and helpers with the Office of the Provincial Prosecutor of Pangasinan.
