DENR bares priority programs for 2012

TACLOBAN CITY, Leyte, Jan 16 (PIA) –- The thrusts and priorities of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources for the year 2012 are consistent with the President’s Social Contract with the Filipino people and supportive of the five priority agenda of the President.

The pronouncement was made by DENR Region 8 information officer, Purificacion Daloos, during the recently held Harampang Ha PIA at the regional office of the Philippine Information Agency.

The priority programs are grouped into four major divisions namely, forest management service, land management service, protected areas and coastal zone management service, and ecosystems research and development service.

Under the forest management service are the National Greening Program, forest protection and delineation of protected areas.

Eastern Visayas, in 2012, targets to plant 2.866 million fast growing forest trees; 60,000 urban greening urban forest species; 22,220 propagules for mangrove rehabilitation; 807,000 indigenous and premium species and 316,500 fruit trees to be planted in 12,365 hectares of land.

In support to NGP, about 41 forest extension workers and 232 Bantay Gubat workers will be hired this year.

For land management service, 247,358 cadastral surveys will be implemented in Samar, Eastern Samar, and Northern Samar for category 1 and 454,037 cadastral surveys for category 2, in Leyte, southern Leyte, Samar, Eastern Samar, and Northern Samar.

The DENR in the region targets patent issuance numbering 6,627 for residential and 22 MSA applications for 2012.

Meanwhile, for the protected areas and wildlife coastal zone management service, DENR-8 will work for the establishment of the protected area at Kuapnit Balinsasayao National Park in Mahaplag, Leyte, and the development of ecotourism sites.

The DENR’s major programs for 2012 will have high impact in achieving the national goals of anti corruption, transparent, accountable and participatory governance; poverty reduction and empowerment of the poor and vulnerable; rapid, inclusive and sustained economic growth; just and lasting peace and the rule of law; and integrity of the environment and climate change, Daloos said.
