FOREST LAND USE PLANNING COMMITTEES CREATED

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) V headed by Regional Director Oscar C. Dominguez created a Regional Steering Committee (RSC), a Regional Technical Working Group (RTWG) headed by Assistant Regional Director for Technical Services Roberto D. Sheen and Regional Forest Land Use Plan (RFLUP) Teams in the Bicol region last February 2018.

The RSC, RTWG and RFLUP Teams were created in consonance with the provisions of Executive Order No. 318 promoting sustainable forest management in the Philippines and Memorandum Circulars Nos. 98-01 or the Manual of Procedures for DENR-DILG-LGU Partnership on Devolved and other Forest Management Functions and 2003-01 which strengthens and institutionalizes the DENR-DILG-LGU partnership on devoted and other Forest Management functions and other related guidelines.

The Forest Land Use Plan 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. Therefore, through the creation of the FLUP Committees, the DENR will be able to ensure that the goals and objectives of FLUP are met.

Capacitation trainings to DENR V employees were recently conducted to enhance their knowledge and skills deemed essential to facilitate the implementation of FLUP. (JNLoria)
