DENR PhilCCAP: Good Practice Awards nominee

 philcapp

The Philippine Climate Change Adaptation Project (PhilCCAP) implemented by the DENR and other partner agencies was nominated to the Good Practice Awards (GPA) by the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA).

 

The DENR Central Office submitted PhilCCAP, a project that develops and demonstrates climate change adaptation approaches in the ENR and agricultural sectors, as an entry to the GPA – Category A: Strategies in Achieving Desired Outcomes. The project passed the preliminary screening and was subjected for field validation as the next step for assessment on Nov. 8-9, this year at the project sites in Peñablanca, Cagayan.

Cagayan Valley was selected for evaluation among the 3 implementing regions which include Regions 4 and 13 since all the project components were implemented in this region.

Senior Economic Development Specialist Rhya L. Daluddung and Economic Development Specialist I Ianah O. Olonan conducted group discussions with the project’s focal persons from the implementing agencies, interview with the beneficiaries, and site visits.

 

“We are here to know how effective, relevant and innovative PhilCCAP is. We will also assess if its strategies can be replicated to some other areas and projects,” said Daluddung while conducting interview with the farmer-beneficiaries of Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) in their learning center in Agugaddan, Peñablanca.

 

Protected Area Superintendent Tito M. Mangantulao presented the DENR’s implementation at the Peñablanca Protected Landscape and Seascape where the project sites are located. PASU Mangantulao said 77 beneficiaries from barangays Manga, Buyun and Nabbabalayan established agro-forestry farms that serve as an adaptation strategy in their community.

 

Representatives from the Department of Agriculture and its supporting sectors also discussed about their thrusts in partnering with farmers in the implementation of another PhilCCAP component. The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration, another lead partner-agency of the project, presented how their scientific information enables end-users make more rapid and accurate decisions for climate risk management.

 

After the validation, the DENR will present the project to the award’s screening committees for final interview and evaluation.

 

“We are very honored because once again, Region 2 has been nominated for an award through the PhilCCAP. Even just a nomination makes us already proud,” told Assistant Regional Director for Technical Services Felix C. Taguba during the exit conference of the activity.

 

Both of the NEDA’s staff expressed their positive feedback and hopefulness that DENR will win the award. They said that with the impacts of climate change, the hardest hit are the farmers but the existence of PhilCCAP makes them adapt, become resilient, and thrive throughout the coming years.

 

“We are thankful to PhilCCAP because of the efforts it has done to uplift the Filipino people,” concluded Regional Director Atty. Gil A. Aromin as he expressed his strong view of winning the award especially that the project was made possible through the convergence of efforts from different sectors.

 

The awarding ceremonies will be held in the first quarter of next year.#RCC


 

 

Sec. Cimatu to DENR field officials: maintain cleanliness of Cagayan River

SECRETARYCIMATU visit

Environment Secretary Roy A. Cimatu in his first visit to Region 2 called on his field officials to continue the protection of the Cagayan River against litters and other pollutants.

“The Cagayan River, the longest and the cleanest, is the source of irrigation water of the valley,” the DENR top brass said upon seeing the vast tracks of land planted with rice and corn along his way from Tuguegarao Airport to the field offices of the DENR.

Located in the northeast of Region 2, the Cagayan River has a total stretch of about 520 kilometers. It is also the largest river basin in the Philippines having a drainage area of 2,775,300 hectares with 1,200,000 ha of major water resources.

During his visit, the top environment official announced the Department’s directions under his watch.

“Kayo ang panlaban kaya kailangang palakasin ang mga CENRO,” he said emphasizing that the Community Environment and Natural Resources Offices (CENROs) are in the frontline in the implementation of environment and natural resources programs.

With the strengthening of the CENROs, environmental laws – Philippine Clean Air Act of 1999, Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000 and Philippine Clean Water Act of 2004 will be enforced.

Secretary Cimatu also announced the hiring of lawyers to be deployed in every CENRO who will assist on law enforcement and resolution of land cases. The lawyers will be trained on environmental law enforcement.

On the Enhanced National Greening Program (E-NGP), he emphasized that funds for the program should only be used for its implementation. “Ipatupad natin na walang kalokohan,” he added.

For land titling, he said issuance of documents should be fast tracked in order to avoid suspicion. “Walang manghihingi ng bayad,” he warned.

During the welcome program held on Sept. 9 at the DENR Regional Office, Secretary Cimatu handed the Bayani ng Kalikasan Award (for the Fallen Heroes of the Environment) to the parents of Mark Ian B. Dela Cruz for “his selfless dedication and ultimate sacrifice for the DENR.”

A Commendation of Outstanding Commitment was also awarded to Forester II Wilbert P. Ranchez, Extension Officer Noel Q. Massalang, Extension Officer Joel S. Ortiz and Forest Protection Officer Mark Anthony M. Capuchino. Dela Cruz and his four companions were hit by lightning while conducting geo-tagging at the NGP site in Rizal, Cagayan on May 12, 2016.

On Sept. 10, Secretary Cimatu graced the 46th founding anniversary celebration of Quirino Province.

In his message, he assured the Quirinians of the partnership and support of the DENR particularly in reforestation and in the enforcement of environmental laws, rules and regulations.

“I do not need to remind you to take good care of the environment and natural resources of your province.

Strict procurement process reduces corruption – ARD Reyes

ra9184

 

In a bid to improve the procurement process and to shun officials and employees from committing violations, more than 50 Regional and Provincial Bids and Awards Committee (BAC) members underwent a learning event on Republic Act 9184 otherwise known as “Government Procurement Reform Act and its Revised Implementing Rules and Regulations” on June 27-28, this year at the Narra Hall, DENR Regional Office, Carig Sur Tuguegarao City.

RA 9184 prescribes the necessary rules and regulations for the modernization, standardization, and regulation of the procurement activities of the Government of the Philippines (GoP).

 

In his opening message, Assistant Regional Director for Management Services George R. Reyes emphasized that government employees can help save government money and reduce corruption if RA 9184 is strictly followed.

He cautioned the BAC members for a possibility to commit violation if they are unaware of the procurement policies. He said no excuse will be made for actions that were inconformity with the procurement procedures.

“Most officials were dismissed in the government service due to failure of complying with the said Republic Act. Although our intention is good and we only wanted to fast track the procurement of goods for the Office, we are not still safe unless we thoroughly learn the policies,” ARD Reyes underlined.

He mentioned the importance of procuring activities whether they are goods, infrastructure and consultancy services as relevant factors to achieve a smooth flow of any office operation.

“This 2017, I hope that we do the procurement process sound and safe so that we could again qualify in the granting of Performance-Based Bonus which requires all government agencies to be compliant to RA 9184,” he added.

 

Meanwhile, Senior Budget Specialist (SBS) Reynaldo R. Villon, procurement practitioner and resource speaker from the Department of Budget and Management Region 2, has added knowledge to the participants on the Overview of RA 9184 and its Amendments, Alternative Modes of Procurement and its Policies and Changes, Amendments of Public Bidding and Procurement Planning and Monitoring.

SBS Villon discussed the bidding procedures for the procurement of goods and Infrastructure projects.

He underscored the use of Philippine Government Electronic Procurement System (PhilGEPS) Registration Certificate and PhilGEPS Registration Certificate Number as one of the provisions in the Revised IRR.

“The PhilGEPS Registration Certificate, categorized as platinum membership only, became a mandatory document submitted during public bidding. Prospective bidder can now use the certificate in lieu of other eligibility requirements: registration from the Department of Trade and Industry, Securities and Exchange Commission and Cooperative Development Authority, mayor’s permit, tax clearance, audited financial statements and pick up licence in case of infrastructure projects. But for alternative mode of procurement like shopping and small value procurement, certificates are no longer needed. Only the PhilGEPS Registration Certificate Number categorized even in the old blue or red membership is required instead,” Villon clarified.

The two-day learning event was impressive as expressed by the participants during the closing program. “It would be a great help for the BAC members, Secretariat and Technical Working Groups for the improvement of the operation and regulation of the procurement activities not only in the Regional Office but also in the Field Offices,” said Chief, Administrative Officer Lilia dL. Abel. #CAT#

Forest patrol system levels up

forest patrol systemThe web-based mobile application dubbed Lawin Forest Biodiversity Protection System (LFBPS) launched on March 10, 2016 to monitor conservation areas has upgraded into a more extensive monitoring system.

Enforcement Division Chief Joel S. Daquioag lauded this move for efficiency in the transmission, consolidation and analysis of patrol data during the SMART Connect for LFBPS Learning Event on Feb. 27-28, this year at the Crown Pavilion, Tuguegarao City.

“The Lawin System has been streamlined in the forest protection activities targeting a total patrol of 1,800 kilometers for this year. It is very useful and improves our advocacies, as all forms of threat in the forest are detected through our forest patrollers,” said Forester Daquioag.

The system, developed by the DENR and the Biodiversity and Wildlife Improved for Stronger Economy and Ecosystem Resilience (B+WISER), is operated through an open-source software called “CyberTracker” for data collection interface and the Spatial Monitoring and Reporting Tool (SMART) for data analysis, mapping and report generation.

It aims to improve the response mechanisms to address wildlife threats within the forests and protected areas of the Cagayan Valley Region.

Equipped with Global Positioning System, the SMART Connect features the collection and sharing of field data in real time; manages and responses to real time alerts to enable more effective and rapid operational responses; centrally manages SMART deployments at multiple times; and enhances analysis, visualization and impact of SMART data for decision making by integrating with other systems.
In his message, OIC, Regional Director, Atty. Gil A. Aromin, emphasized that there is a need to capacitate the forest rangers, extension officers and forest protection officers (FPOs) on the use of the mobile system to further improve the implementation of forest protection and law enforcement activities.

The 38 patrol teams composed of 204 forest rangers, forest protection officers and extension officers had a total patrol of 1,355.84 kilometers from July 2016 to January 2017. Adopting the forest conservation area plans of the different Community Environment and Natural Resources Offices, the forest condition and indicator species were observed.

The top five observed threats were: presence of hut/house and other infrastructure, 31 percent; cutting of trees, 29 percent; annual and perennial farming, 16 percent; slash-and-burn farming, 14 percent; and charcoal making, 10 percent. These observations were immediately responded to by the concerned Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Officers.

Facilitated by representatives of the Forest Management Bureau and Chemonics International, Inc. (B+WISER), the learning event educated the participants on how to install and manipulate the upgraded software that will be used in data analysis after conducting forest patrol and biodiversity assessment. Patrol data can now be recorded per CENRO.

B+WISER Biodiversity and Forestry Specialist Felix Gaschick discussed the features of the application. He said the system has become more embracing because through the interconnection of database, monitoring and access of data are easier and better.

“The system has now started to roll out to the different DENR offices nationwide,” Specialist Gaschick added.

Meanwhile, Dr. Rodolfo B. Santos Jr., Monitoring and Evaluation Specialist of the B+WISER convened the FPOs for the formulation of process for responding to observed threats.

“Technology will not protect the forest, it is the people who are. They are the ones doing the activity that is why we need to enhance them and come up with a generic protocol which will apply to all situations,” Dr. Santos emphasized.

As an output, the FPOs were able to formulate a response framework stressing the procedure to respond to data-driven reports particularly on kaingin farming and establishment of buildings/structures in protected areas.

RD Aromin congratulated the 43 forest patrollers in the closing program of the Learning Event.

“I hope that the knowledge you have gained will be applied by heart for a more productive workforce so that our mandate to protect the environment will always be there. We count on you as our partners in forest protection and conservation,” the Cagayan Valley chief enthused. #CAT

According to Franklin Mabitazan, NGCP Reliability and Technical Assessment Department head and team leader, a 40-meter right-of-way from the center (left and right) of the transmission line shall be established.

ARD Malvar said the DENR shall assist the NGCP in the compliance with the different requirements as there are government agencies involved like Environmental Management Bureau and National Commission on Indigenous Peoples in the preparatory activities.

“The existing Forest Land Use Plan shall be used as reference, however, it must be updated to harmonize the areas to be covered by the NGCP. Likewise, those affected areas that will be evaluated as part of the transmission lines shall be removed and updated with its corresponding landuse,” ARD Malvar further stated.

In his Memorandum dated Dec. 9, 2016, Forest Management Bureau Director Ricardo L. Calderon ordered all Regional Directors except the National Capital Region to facilitate the conduct of actual ground verification survey and submit the list of existing and expired Special Land Use Permit and FLAg of the NGCP.

The RDs were also instructed to expedite action for tenured areas that will be affected by the FLAg, considering that the corporation has identified 65 backbone transmission lines nationwide which traverse the forestland covering an area of approximately 3,994 hectares.

Other agreements in the Conference include the adoption of a just compensation or co-location policy; payment of the NGCP of corresponding amount equivalent to the size of the area waived by the existing owners of tenurial instrument previously issued; and crafting of guidelines that regulate the project like the amount of User’s Fee with the standard computation of zonal value of the areas covered.

The NGCP’s application for FLAg aims to safeguard the reliability of transmission lines from unwanted obstructions such as hazard vegetation and tall structures. This is in line with the provision stated in Department Administrative Order No. 2004-59 known as the “Rules and Regulation Governing the Special Uses of Forestlands”. #CAT#
