MetadataShow full item record
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) is set to plant bamboo trees along the banks of the Cagayan River to help mitigate flooding in communities that were submerged during the onslaught of typhoon Ulysses. DENR Secretary Roy Cimatu issued the directive during a meeting of the Build Back Better Task Force (BBBTF) last Nov. 27. Cimatu ordered the DENR regional offices in Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon, and CALABARZON to ensure the availability of bamboo planting materials.
