DENR crafting policy to protect watershed areas
MetadataShow full item record
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) is crafting an executive order to prioritize watershed rescue to counter effects of climate-linked calamities and ensure replenishment of irrigation and hydro-electric or geothermal energy sources. This EO, being drafted by the DENR's Forest Management Bureau, will elevate to national strategy status its Save Our Watershed movement. "This will pave the way for the establishment of institutional mechanisms for collaborative or whole-of-society efforts in conserving our watersheds," said Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu.
