The National Greening Program has had its share of recognition as government’s regreening program. Social mobilization marked its early years and convergence, corporate social responsibility were buss words associated with it. After the initial excitement that comes with anything new, the NGP went about its implementation, quietly and unobtrusively, not that there wasn’t anything relevant happening.

The launching of the B+WISER success story book, In the Heart of the Forest, and the ceremonial planting of Kamagong tree seedlings were held jointly last December 3, 2018 at the DENR Central Office, Quezon City.  The event was held right after the DENR flag ceremony and was graced by the USAID/Philippines Environment Office Chief John Edgar, the B+WISER Program Chief of Party Roberto Rapera, the FMB Director Nonito Tamayo, and the Chief of Staff and Undersecretary Rodolfo Garcia, representing the DENR Secretary. All other DENR Officials and personnel were also present at the event.

UN Forest Instrument: A Framework For Implementing Sustainable Forest Management
As a framework for implementing sustainable forest management, the UN Forest Instrument includes a set of 25 National Policies and Measures, which are designed to bring the country closer to the goal of achieving sustainably managed forest ecosystems all over the archipelago. Although on voluntary basis, each member state of UNFF is responsible for the sustainable management of its forests and enforcement of its forest-related laws. Importantly, in addition to the Government’s forest service units, all relevant stakeholders including local government units (LGU), local and indigenous communities, and non-governmental, civil society, academe, and media organizations will be involved through transparent, participatory constructive engagements, dialogues, and consultations. |more|
