DENR’s adapt-an-Estero Program goes international with its newest New Zealand Creamery, Inc. (NZCI), a butter and cheese manufacturing company.
Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Secretary Ramon J. P. Paje today announced that the agency along with Makati City government have entered into partnership with NZCI president Kim Sin Ongkauko to clean up and improve Balisampan Creek in Barangay Guadalupe Viejo, Makati City as part of the government’s Adopt-an-Estero program.
The parties sealed their partnership with the signing of a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) Tuesday at the DENR office in Quezon City.
Paje was very grateful that NZCI heeded their call to the private sector to help them address the issue of clogged waterways in the metropolis that have been threats to the health and safety of their communities.
The MOA tasks NZCI to decongest Balisampan Creek through surface clean-up and engineering solutions; mobilize and educate surrounding communities; assist in capacity building in coordination with the DENR; and recommend and implement appropriate measures to reduce pollution along the creek. It can also assist in tapping other sponsors and volunteers to extend the length of the pilot site, particularly in dredging and greening measures.
For its part, the DENR, through the National Solid Waste Management Commission which it chairs, and the Environmental Management Bureau, will oversee the implementation of measures in reducing pollution. It will also provide technical assistance in establishing materials recovery facilities and water quality monitoring.
The MOA also tasks the Makati City government to maintain trash traps along the creek, and ensure the proper implementation of ecological solid waste management including segregation and collection in the barangays and among homeowners’ associations.
The program to adopt waterways is a partnership between the public and private sectors to clean up rivers, esteros, creeks and other tributaries of major water bodies to prevent flooding as well as reduce pollution and promote public health, environmental integrity and economic viability.
The DENR, since launching the program in 2010 has gained widespread support and now has more than 200 partners from private sector, other government agencies and local government units nationwide committing to clean up waterways in their localities.
A regional forest tree seed committee was recently created in the office of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources-National Capital Region (DENR-NCR) to ensure the production of quality seedlings for the National Greening Program (NGP).
According to DENR-NCR Executive Director Laureano Lingan, Jr., DENR Secretary Ramon J.P. Paje demands a survival rate of not lower than 80 percent.
This in essence, Lingan said requires among others quality seedling stocks to be planted in accordance with the standards set by the seed committee, which creation is a must.
DENR-NCR Special No. 394 created the seed committee headed by DENR-NCR Technical Director for Research Perfecta Hinojosa.
The committee is tasked primarily to assess and verify seed source; to collect and handle seeds and planting materials; to facilitate the accreditation of government/local government unit and private seed production areas, seedling seed orchards, seed source and nurseries; and to train extension markers LGU staff and other personnel of the regional office.
Lingan, aside from DENR personnel has included in the committee some representatives from the private sector and from the Quezon City local government, specifically from the Parks Development and Administration Office.
He said that for 2011, his office has targeted to plant some 350 hectares within the metropolis. “Unlike in other regions, the DENR-NCR will be responsible for the implementation of urban forestry as our contribution to the greening program,” he explained.
He also said that among the areas targeted for planting by the regional office include greenbelts, parks and other open spaces.
