PIA Press Release

Lazi town steps up coastal resource management

Siquijor (15 December) -- In an effort to step up the Coastal Resource Management Program of the municipality of Lazi, Jean L. Villahermosa and Alreich P. Duran – both agricultural technologists of the LGU, attended the 1st National Marine Protected Area Summit recently at the Crown Regency Hotel, Mactan, Cebu.

The summit was aimed to identify the rationale, trends, and future challenges in the local government’s management of MPAs and highlight best practices and champions on MPA management, especially among local governments. The municipalities of Cordova, Cebu of Mabini, Batangas and of Lanuza, Surigao del Sur, hosted the activity.

The coastal barangays of Talayong and Lower Cabangcalan of Lazi have been established as marine protected areas (MPAs). Mayor Orville A. Fua has been actively supporting the implementation of the CRM by allocating municipal funds yearly.

In a related development, the members of the Coastal Resource Management Technical Working Group had been conducting meetings recently to draft an “integrated coastal and upland ordinance”. The proposed ordinance is intended to codify all existing CRM and fishery ordinances in the municipality in order to strengthen its law enforcement.

In attendance during the meetings were Rey G. Bendejo and Rizallier G. Amolo who were invited as consultants from the Coastal Conservation Education foundation Inc. (C L E F I), and Ryd D. Banguis, Officer-in-Charge of the Coastal and Marine Management Section and Jose G. Ando, planning officer of the DENR.

President Gloria M. Arroyo has issued Executive Order 553, dated January 6, 2006, adopting Integrated Coastal Management as a national strategy to ensure the sustainable development of the country’s coastal and marine environment and resources and establishing supporting mechanisms for its implementation.
