DENR 10 REGIONAL EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR LAYS DOWN AGENCY’S PLANS AND TARGETS FOR CY 2020

Department of Environment and Natural Resources Region 10 (DENR 10) Regional Executive Director (RED) Arleigh J. Adorable lays down the agency’s plans and targets for CY 2020 during its 1st Regional Expanded Executive Committee Meeting on January 8, 2020 in Cagayan de Oro City.

In compliance to the marching orders of DENR Secretary Roy A. Cimatu, RED Adorable underscored the necessity to create a Regional Environmental Law Enforcement Task Force which will be tasked to sternly enforce in the region the several environmental laws of the country particularly on forest protection.

Also, RED Adorable tasked the Director of Environmental Management Bureau Region 10 to identify as soon as possible an area where the Local Government Units (LGUs) can establish a clustered sanitary landfill and to require them to submit a sewage plan.

Following the success of “Challenge for Change Program: CDO Limpyo Dagat Contest” as a regional initiative of DENR 10 which the same was inspired on the efforts of the department to restore and rehabilitate the Manila Bay, RED Adorable plans to sustain this initiative by replicating it this time to the rivers of Cagayan de Oro City. The contest gained support from the LGUs in the city as well as from other stakeholders to protect and conserve the Macajalar Bay. As a result of this, RED Adorable likewise aspires to clone the same initiative to all other bays in the region.

RED Adorable underscored the implementation and supervision of NGP in the region by continuing its objective to increase its present forest cover of 22%. DENR 10 is targeting to correct all its polygons on the first quarter of 2020 through Social Cartography method using drones to identify the metes and bounds of areas developed.

For CY 2020, DENR 10 target for patent issuance significantly increased to more or less 10,000 titles which will be worked out in coordination with the municipalities in the region with existing Memorandum of Partnership Agreements with the Office.

DENR 10 seeks to be the best performing regional office based on what it has accomplished in the previous year and live its being an Environmental Awards for Governance and Leadership Excellence (EAGLE) Awardee for the year 2018 – the highest and most prestigious award that can be conferred to the most outstanding performers among the regional offices.

RED Adorable looks forward for the continuous effort of the Office to work together and accordingly find strength in unity among its employees. #TayoAngKalikasan RSCIS MR No. 01-019-2020
