FOREST MANAGEMENT SERVICE (FMS)

The major concern of this sector is to improve the technical and managerial expertise in the sustainable development of forest resources. It is responsible in the implementation of the National Greening Program which is to plant 1.5 billion trees in 1.5 million hectares of denuded lands in six-year period from 2011 to 2016. It is also responsible for the Protection of the remaining forest in Region 12 and to strictly implement the nationwide log ban on all natural and residual forests based on Executive Order No. 23 issued by President Aquino in February 2011. 

The sector is now implementing other major programs/projects like the Community-Based Forestry Program; Soil Conservation and Watershed Management; and the Forestland Boundary Delineation of the Protected Areas.

DENR XII holds River for the Future Symposium

 

DENR SOCCSKSARGEN·WEDNESDAY, MARCH 20, 2019

KORONADAL CITY - The Department of Environment and Natural Resources XII together with the Environmental Management Bureau XII, Mines and Geosciences Bureau XII, Local Government Unit of Koronadal and B’lok Creek Management Council pushed for the “River for the Future Symposium” as a pre-information campaign for the upcoming region-wide simultaneous LINIS ILOG SOX event, yesterday, March 19 at Koronadal City Hall.

 

Around 150 participants from the different barangays of Koronadal City were informed of the Salient Features of the Solid Waste Management, the Water Quality of the B’lok Creek, Tips on Sustainable Management of Rivers and the Linis Ilog Project.

 DENR XII Regional Executive Director Nilo B. Tamoria underscored that Clean Water is one of DENR Secretary Roy Cimatu’s priority program based on the 10-point agenda. 

 “DENR is committed to improve the conditions of the rivers in the country. Sec. Cimatu ordered the DENR to lead the river clean-up throughout the country, said Director Tamoria.

 Director Tamoria further cited the closure of Boracay and other water bodies and the need to recover from pollution.

 RED Tamoria also encouraged the participants to make it a habit and way of life to clean-up the rivers and manage solid waste that would lead to behavioral change for the people in order to make it more effective.

 “Let us have a continuous effort and contribute in finding a solution to the problem of deteriorating water quality, so that the next generation will inherit a clean quality of water,” he added.

 RED Tamoria together with Koronadal City Administrator Cyrus Urbano encouraged Koronadaleños to take part on the LINIS ILOG SOX Event on March 22, 2019 for the B’lok Creek Clean-Up. (MMAdam)
