DENR 6 NGP attains 100% delivery rate in BUB scheme


The Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) in Region 6, the government agency that oversees the implementation of the Bottom-up Budgeting (BuB) Program, has recently awarded the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) in Region 6 the High Delivery Rate (100%) for its BuB implementation of the National Greening Program.

This recognizes the efforts of the DENR 6 being an active agency that implements the BuB from CY 2013-2016.

BuB is a program wherein the community and the local government units are working together in identifying projects based on their needs to be implemented in their area to suppress poverty. The proposed projects are then incorporated into the implementing national government agencies’ proposed budgets which are submitted to Congress for approval.

The DENR 6 National Greening Program, as the enrolled menu program of the department, was able to implement six (6) BUB projects covering an area of 289 hectares with 517,674 seedlings with a corresponding budget of Php 8,062,000.00 for CY 2016.

These projects are located in the municipalities of Nabas, Aklan (60 ha w/ 94,820 seedlings); Patnongon, Antique (25 ha w/ 39,236 seedlings); Pontevedra, Capiz (49 ha w/ 98,000 seedlings) & Roxas, Capiz (27 ha w/ 54,000 seedlings); Lambunao, Iloilo (73 ha w/ 12,618 seedlings) and Zarraga, Iloilo (55 ha w/ 110,000 seedlings).

The 289 hectares were fully planted with mangrove, coffee, timber and other fruit trees by concerned Local Government Units (LGUs), Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), People’s Organization (POs) and communities as partners in the BuB implementation.

“We are very grateful that our efforts have been rewarded. This will serve as an inspiration for the department to work harder and to sustain the momentum this 2017 and upcoming years. We also appreciate the efforts that our partners in the program have given.” said Regional Director Jim O Sampulna.

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. ###
