Meeting of the Minds
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) 6 hosts the 4th National Regional Directors’ Meeting on May 20-21, 2015. The event gathered the 15 DENR Regional Directors nationwide and tackled pressing concerns of the Department. On May 20, USEC for Field Operations Demetrio L. Ignacio chaired the meeting together with ASEC for Field Operations Marcial C. Amaro and USEC for Administration and Information Systems Ernesto D. Adobo, Jr. The DENR officials discussed updates on the status of rehabilitation efforts over Yolanda-affected upland and coastal areas, Cadastral Survey Program, Patent Processing and Issuance and the Rationalization Plan. On May 21, a workshop on the planned National “Treevolution” was discussed. The event aims to once again bank on the spirit of volunteerism that aims to set a new record for most trees planted in multiple locations in one hour. In September last year, the Treevolution MindaNOW successfully achieved the title and earned a Guinness World Record.
DENR Secretary Ramon J.P. Paje gave a marching order to all regional directors to plan for the simultaneous planting of 10 Million seedlings across 20,000 hectares nationwide by September 2015.
