DENR 10 welcomes the newly designated Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Assistant Secretary (Asec.) for Western Mindanao, Director IV Jim O. Sampulna, on January 15, 2019.

In his first meeting with DENR 10 Officials, Asec. Sampulna echoed the strict implementation of the marching orders of DENR Secretary Roy A. Cimatu – particularly the ten priority programs to protect and sustainably manage the ENR of the country.

Likewise, he encouraged the active participation of the Provincial and Community ENR Officers to the search for Recognizing Individuals/Institutions towards Vibrant and Enhanced Rivers (RIVERs) for Life Award. This is a contest keenly monitored by the Secretary himself to recognize their efforts in implementing and enforcing DENR programs and policies to protect as well as conserve the rivers in the country from pollution and other threats.

Prior to his present assignment, Asec. Sampulna was the former RED of DENR Region 6 – Iloilo City. #TayoAngKalikasan RSCIS MR #01-014-2019
