NVizcaya youth, DENR ink MOA for environment protection

Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya (3 June) -- Members of the Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) recently signed a memorandum of agreement designed to protect and rehabilitate the environment of the province, being the watershed area of Cagayan Valley.

Angie Burton, SK provincial chair said the signing of the MOA was made during the first SK provincial congress in May 29 attended by 218 delegates with 131 SK chairpersons and 87 SK councilors.

The congress, she said solely focused on giving importance on the protection and rehabilitation of the environment with the theme, "Sama–sama para sa Kalikasan."

Burton said the focus of the congress is timely because of the enundation of flashfloods in the province triggered by loosening of mountain soils due to dwindling forest cover.

"During the congress, a pledge of commitment was made among our provincial officials and SK members inorder to undertake efforts in rehabilitating our environment," Burton said.

Under the MOA, the youth will undertake tree planting activities in the towns of Dupax del Sur, Aritao and Bayombong in coordination with the concerned Community environment and Natural Resources Office (CENROs) in these areas.

Burton said initially, a one-hectare area has been identified in barangay Indiana in Bambang town for their tree planting activity, an area in barangay Dopaj in Dupax del Sur and the Lower Magat Eco-tourism Park in Diadi town.

She said they have proposed a P100,000 funding requirement for the project before the SK national federation. (PIA NVizcaya) [top]
