RCSD-2 urges LGUs to intensify implementation of forest laws

by Oliver T. Baccay

Tuguegarao City (21 May) -- The Regional Committee on Sustainable Development (RCSD) Region 2 has urged the Local Government Units (LGUs) to overcome the challenges on the perceived gaps and weak implementation of forest laws in Cagayan Valley.

Based on NEDA reports, low Information Education and Communication (IEC) activities on the provisions of forest laws especially the Chainsaw Act of 2002 and the Revised Forestry Code and their implementing rules and regulations were identified as the gaps in the full implementation of the law.

The report even specified that budgetary constraints and lack of political will are among factors that hampered the implementation of the said laws.

"The local government should intensify IEC activities and provide capacity building assistance for law enforcers and all concerned stakeholders for the full implementation of these laws", NEDA Regional Director Milagros Rimando said.

Rimando further stated that local chief executives should be vigilant in protecting the forests and join forces with the DENR in monitoring destructive and illegal forest activities.

"These can be done through greater multi-sectoral partnership and cooperation among the constituents", Rimando added.

Meantime, RCSD members hope that with the imminent shift in local and national leadership, the region will have more vigilant administration that will truly safeguard and promote the sustainable use of land and physical resources to benefit the present and future generations. (PIA-2) [top]
