Davao council sets summit on protected areas

Davao City (7 September) -- Members of the Protected Areas Management Board (PAMB) in Davao Region will meet in a summit seeking to re-orient members of the board's functions.

Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) XI Regional Director Jim O. Sampulna said PAMBs were set to meet in a summit from October 6 to October 7 in Davao City.

Sampulna said the summit was aimed at keeping PAMB members abreast of some new issuances regarding management of protected areas in the region while also re-orienting them of PAMBs functions.

PAMB is a multi-sectoral body created to administer and manage protected areas such as pristine forests with endemic trees and rare flora and fauna and Mangrove areas.

One of its functions is to ensure that no so-called development projects and activities are done in identified and declared protected areas.

Davao Region has about 10 or more declared protected areas and each has a management board chaired by the regional director of the DENR. Among the protected areas in Davao Region are Mt. Apo in Davao City, Mt. Hamiguitan, and Mainit Hotspring in Compostela Valley.

Sampulna is looking at sharing the post as the chair of PAMBs with local government executives especially those actively participating so they can be hands on in overseeing the protected area, Sampulna said. (PIA XI/JMDA) [top]
