DENR Bukidnon hires contract employees under CLEEP

by Ruby Lenora R. Balistoy

Malaybalay City, Bukidnon (22 June) -- The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) in the city has hired 823 contract workers to facilitate implementation of the upland development program and forest protection activities.

Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Officer (PENRO) Agustilo Obsioma said the job hiring is in support to the government's Comprehensive Livelihood Emergency Employment Program (CLEEP).

"The newly-hired workers are designated as Emergency Forest Extension Workers (EFEW) or ‘Bantay Gubat' who will patrol the forest to detect and prevent illegal logging, forest fire, slash and burn farming, forest occupancy and other destructive activities in forest lands," Obsioma said.

Rico Jebulan, PENRO-UDP Coordinator also said the bantay gubat workers will be deployed in Don Carlos, Manolo Fortich, Malaybalay, Pangantucan and Talakag towns straddling Mt. Kitanglad and Mt. Kalatungan.

Each worker will receive P3,000 monthly honorarium and their contracts are valid for six months, renewable until December 2009.

They shall also be provided with implements, tools, identifications, caps, shirts, boots and raincoats to be used in performing their tasks.

Their honoraria are from the national government's CLEEP being pushed by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo to invigorate economic activities in the countryside as a measure in cushioning the impact of the global economic recession in the country.

"With the help of ‘Bantay Gubat' through the CLEEP, upland communities will be deeply involved in the protection of the country's environment and natural resources," Obsioma further said. (PIA-Bukidnon) [top]
