The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR VI) recently awarded the best implementer or partner people’s organization in carrying out its National Greening Program (NGP) in Western Visayas.

NGP Regional Coordinator CENRO Bernabe H. Garnace said that there were three categories for the awards – Best Upland NGP Plantations, Best Mangrove and Beach Forest Plantations, and Best Urban Greening Program Plantations.

DENR VI Regional Director Jim O Sampulna created a selection committee to identify for the Best NGP site or people’s organization, chaired by Garnace with Forester Conrado B. Marquez as vice chairman. Marquez is the Regional Focal Person for Mangrove and Coastal NGP Sites.

“This is to highlight the contributions of our partners in the success of the NGP,” Garnace said.

The criteria includes the quality of seedling materials in the plantation, survival percentage of plantation, quality of maintenance and protection activities, community/people’s organization involvement, and other innovations introduced by the nominees.

Director Sampulna, for his part, said that such recognition would further encourage the people’s organizations and the communities to protect the plantations and engaged in future activities of the DENR.
