DENR's Manila Bay 'white sand' project violates at least five law - NGOs
MetadataShow full item record
Several non government organizations (NGOs) claimed that the dumping of crushed dolomite or ‘white sand’ along the coast of Manila Bay by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) violated at least five laws that affected fisheries, biodiversity, and marine habitats. In a position paper, Oceana Philippines and other civil society groups said the DENR’s project failed to comply with the Fisheries Code, the Clean Water Act, National Cultural Heritage Act, Local Government Code of 1991, and Presidential Proclamation No. 2146, which declares “certain areas and types of projects as environmentally critical.” The Manila Bay is a declared national historical landmark.
