DENR institutionalizes coastal resource management in Cagayan

by Oliver T. Baccay

TUGUEGARAO CITY, Jan. 1 (PIA) –- To enhance coastal resources and develop livelihood of coastal communities, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) region 2 has institutionalized the implementation of the integrated coastal resources management project (ICRMP) to 12 participating local government units of Cagayan.

The project was implemented in the marine corridor of Cagayan, which was identified by the Philippine Biodiversity Conservation Priorities with national and global importance due to extremely high biodiversity.

Forester Benjamin Tumaliuan, regional executive director, said the project’s components include rationalization of policy on coastal resources management, institutional strengthening and development, biodiversity conservation, enterprise development and income diversification, and social and environmental services and facilities enhancement.

He said the project’s benefits include reduction of incidence of illegal fishing; improvement of forest covers, watersheds and the coral reefs; and harmonization of laws and regulations governing coastal resources management.

Anchored with the thrust of the government of alleviating poverty, the ICRMP also aims to enhance women’s participation in coastal resources management and alternative livelihood activities as it targets 10 percent increase in fish production in the marine protected areas.

To be able to attain the objectives, concerned agencies need to help DENR to harmonize the laws and regulations governing the coastal resource management and improve inter-agency coordinations to achieve sustainable coastal management.

The project covers the coastal towns of Claveria, Sanchez Mira, Pamlona, Aparri, Sta. Ana, Gonzaga, Buguey, Allacapan, Ballesteros, Gattaran and Penablanca. (TCB/OTB/PIA 2)
