ComVal gov to set up environment task force

By Mai Gevera

NABUNTURAN, Compostela Valley (7 September) -- A natural resource haven, Compostela Valley Province will soon have tighter and efficient implementation of environmental laws as the new governor-elect Arturo Uy felt the need for environment protection and rehabilitation.

Governor Uy during the first episode of the monthly Kapihan sa Comval held Wednesday, batted for the creation of a new task force that would focus mainly on environment matters.

"Comval is known for its mining resources and trees, and that we should give attention in protecting these resources," he said.

The said the task force will clearly define policies, provide better and stricter regulation, and will be constituted by different representatives from all sectors.

Uy, in his statement, bared the possibility of the involvement of some high-ranking local officials in the illegal logging trade.

The task force, as constituted by different representatives is expected to solve massive logging trade in the province.

"We need to level off expectations and functions with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) as they would still be the last body to determine if an operation is illegal or not," he said.

Uy admitted that even if the different local government units have been tight in their policies, but the national agency would still allow some violators to get through the hook, the problem on illegal logging would still remain. (PIA XI) [top]
