DENR 10 ARD MELICOR CHALLENGES EMPLOYEES TO BE WILLED LAW ENFORCERS

To further capacitate its enforcement personnel, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Region 10 (DENR 10) conducted an Orientation and Training of DENR 10 Employees on Environmental Case Proceedings and Procedure on Filing of Cases on November 21, 2018 in Cagayan de Oro City.

In his message, Assistant Regional Director for Technical Services Paquito Melicor, Jr. challenged the enforcement personnel to be willed and firm in enforcing environmental laws. He encouraged the participants to put their hearts and minds on their jobs as environmental law enforcers and deliver more than what is expected of them.

According to ARD Melicor, a big part of enforcing the law is the knowledge of the law and the application of that knowledge. He motivated the participants to keep on learning and doing their best on their respective areas of responsibility. By capacitating the enforcers, ARD Melicor hopes to increase the number of convictions of perpetrators of environmental crimes in the region.

The three-day training included lectures on Philippine Biodiversity, Presidential Decree 705 or the Forestry Code of the Philippines, the Conventional Trade in Endangered Species and Wild Fauna and Flora, Chainsaw Act and Executive Order No. 23, Environmental Case Proceedings, Wildlife Law Enforcement Protocol and the LAWIN Forest and Biodiversity Protection System, among others.

Resource persons were enforcement officers of the Enforcement Division and representatives of the Legal Division of DENR 10.

The training also opened an opportunity for field enforcement personnel to raise issues and concerns in their respective areas. Several cases on field were presented and clarified by the resources persons. #TayoAngKalikasan (Ana Mae Sumalinog) RSCIS MR No. 11-309-2018

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
