DENR allocates P20-M for grassroots' approach in NGP implementation

National Greening Program (NGP) focal persons and coordinators from the DENR regional and field offices tackled the status of NGP projects in various provinces during the recent Meeting on Bottom-up-Budgeting (BuB) for NGP and Typhoon Yolanda Rehabilitation and Recovery Plan.

              The BuB approach in implementing the NGP projects prioritizes the identified needs of the people in the affected communities. The budgeting mechanism is not just about proper allocation of the resources to ensure proper allocation of funds for the implementation of the NGP aimed to substantially reduce poverty but also to properly address environmental concerns of identified communities affected by Typhoon Yolanda by directly involving them.

“This is a very important meeting for us to level off and gather our actions together to successfully attain our targets in NGP and in typhoon Yolanda rehabilitation efforts,” DENR 6 Regional Director Jim O Sampulna (left photo) told the employees.

          DENR 6 Planning and Management Division Chief Edna B. Locsin (left, right photo) encouraged the NGP Coordinators to be specific in defining details in their report while DENR 6 Finance Division OIC Chief Nancy Gavan (right, right photo) discussed the need to be clear in making remarks as to the financial status of each project in their respective areas.

            In 2014, the BUB for NGP has implemented 33 projects out of the target of 46 regionwide, and with a total cost of Php 20,374,000.00. The group also discussed how to fast track the implementation of physical and financial targets in BuB sites and the various issues and concerns of typhoon Yolanda rehabilitation and recovery plans.

Press Statement of Secretary Roy A. Cimatu

 

 

I am pleased, honored and humbled by the vote of the Commission on Appointments confirming my nomination. I am excited about this opportunity to continue serving the public as Secretary of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources.

The challenge for me now is to prove that President Rodrigo Duterte and the honorable members of the CA have made the right decision in placing their trust and confidence in my abilities to lead the DENR towards fulfilling the broad mandate entrusted to it.

The confirmation of my ad interim appointment as DENR Secretary will allow me to continue to institute reforms, and pursue programs and projects that would truly protect the environment and improve people's lives. This gives me enough inspiration to carry out the seemingly gargantuan tasks of protecting the environment and ensuring sustainable use of the country's rich natural resources in the face of climate change and dwindling natural wealth of the nation.

Rest assured that under my watch, the DENR will push for people-centered agenda in pursuit of environmental protection and sustainable development. It is high time that every Filipino, regardless of status in life, should have equal access to the benefits of clean environment and sustainable natural resources. ###
