FMB, DENR 10 INK MOA WITH HOLCIM FOR CARBON SEQUESTRATION

DENR 10 Regional Executive Director Arleight J. Adorable, DENR-FMB Director Nonito M. Tamayo and Engr. Tito L. Mendoza representing Renato A Baja, President and General Manager of Holcim Resources and Development Corporation (HRDC) signed the Memorandum of Agreement for the pilot project on Carbon Accounting, Verification and Certification System (CAVCS) on November 9, 2018 in Cagayan de Oro City.

CAVCS is a new initiative of the DENR to encourage the private sector to invest in projects that sequester carbon by formally recognizing forest protection, reforestation, and other forest restoration activities.

Director Tamayo, in his speech, shared that it has been the clamor of the private sector that a system be established to recognize forest cover projects for carbon certification. This project will be an opportunity not only for the government to harness available funds from the private sector, but also for the latter to showcase their commitment to forest protection and reforestation and to report their greenhouse gas mitigation and corporate sustainability.

RED Adorable expressed his gratitude to the Forest Management Bureau for selecting Region 10 to be the area for the CAVCS piloting in the Philippines. He also thanked HRDC for their active support to forest restoration initiatives and hoped for other companies to follow in the endeavor of protecting the environment.

Eng. Mendoza read the message of HRDS President and General Manager Renato Baja. Baja thanked the DENR and FMB for choosing their company to represent the private sector in the pilot project. According to him, HRDC will greatly benefit from the technical guidelines that the Department will be providing to properly implement forest conservation.

The Carbon Accounting, Verification, and Certification System (CAVCS) Pilot Project will be implemented in the Municipality of Impasugong, Bukidnon with a total area of 3,156 hectares. It aims to yield climate, community, and biodiversity benefits.

The recognition of carbon sequestration by the private sector is consistent with the Philippines’ commitment under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and other international agreements, conventions and protocols on the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in the country. #TayoAngKalikasan (Ana Mae Sumalinog) RSCIS MR# 11-307-2018

IDPs CLAIM LAND STAKES IN MAA

Nineteen barangay chairmen along with 6,543 internally displaced persons from the Most Affected Area (MAA) of Marawi City manifested their will to secure their war-torn properties through the Social Cartography activity spearheaded by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Region 10 (DENR-10).

The alliance of BLGUs, Armed Forces of the Philippines, DENR and the acceptance of GIS-based land survey accelerated its completion, ahead of its March 31, 2019 deadline.

Also known as Kambisita, Social Cartography, is designed to gather data on land ownership inside the MAA. Claims of ownership on structures are also recorded.

As provided in Memorandum Circular No. 2017-003 by the Land Management Bureau, Kambisita adopts the drone-generated maps in identification of properties. The strategy not only expedites the process but also reduces human exposure to unstable structures inside the MAA.

Ground-truthing reveals a minute difference of only 0.10 millimeters between drone-generated map and actual survey.

Kambisita is one of the activities of Task Force Bangon Marawi lodged under DENR. (PSMadridano/PMD-DENR10). #TayoAngKalikasan
