FOREST LAND USE PLANNING HELD

FOREST LAND USE PLANNING HELD

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) V through the Surveys and Mapping Division (SMD) and the Land Evaluation Survey Section (LESS) conducted a training workshop on Forest Land Use Planning (FLUP) on April 11 to 13, 2018 in Legazpi City.

The workshop was participated in by Foresters, Forest Technicians, Land Management Officers and Inspectors from the DENR Field Offices regionwide.

The workshop aimed to capacitate the employees in the creation of FLUP Technical Working Groups (TWGs) per province. The TWG plays an indispensable role in the formulation of FLUP through the promotion of public-private sector investment in Bicol Region regarding forestry. According to Anro O. Orlanes, Chief of LESS, the DENR V has already created a FLUP TWG in the Regional Office.

The FLUP is crucial in identifying appropriate zones in forestlands while incorporating climate change adaptation, disaster risk mitigation and poverty alleviation approaches without altering the needs of the future generation.

Topics discussed during the three-day workshop were the legal basis of FLUP, engaging local government units (LGUs), process and related concepts, social preparation, profiling and mapping, situational analysis, preliminary allocation and watershed prioritization and action planning.

DENR V Regional Director Oscar C. Dominguez emphasized the need to strengthen the partnerships with stakeholders in order to successfully implement the FLUP and other DENR programs and projects. He also stressed that the lack of manpower in the agency has developed the versatility of employees in coping with their additional duties and responsibilities. (JNLoria)
