Forestry violations decrease in Kalinga

Tabuk City, Kalinga (29 May) -- Violations of forestry laws have decreased in 2009 and this year as compared to the past years when illegal cutting and transport were rampant in the province.

According to OIC Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Officer Engr. Ricardo Dang-iw, the strengthened regulatory powers of the Multi-Sectoral Forest Protection Committee(MFPC) particularly the law enforcement sub-committee composed of the Police, military, DENR and Napolcom dealt a big blow to the usual free access of lumber from the forest to Tabuk and outside of Kalinga.

Dang-iw said the IEC campaigns in the barangay level also increased awareness of the community people to take part in protecting the forest from illegal cutters. "This is coupled with the implementation of livelihood activities under the Upland Development program amounting to a total P32 million investment," he added.

The forests are also being watched by Bantay Gubat hired under the Comprehensive Livelihood and Emergency Employment Program (CLEEP) while transport outside of the province was being controlled with the establishment of a permanent two-storey building checkpoint at Talaca, Agbannawag, this city.

"When supply was scarce and price went up, wood industries shifted to other wood species other than narra. Likewise, cutters and transporters also learned to go through the legal process of obtaining first permit from DENR," Dang-iw explained. (PIA) [top]
