Around 500 delegates representing DENR, Community-based Forest Management (CBFM) Peoples Organizations, Local Government Units, Private Sector, Academe, Other Government Agency Donors and Non-Government Organizations will gather in the CY 2018 CBFM-Practitioners Congress. Initially in 2012 and 2015, the CBFM Practitioners Congress was held. This year CBFM Practitioners Congress will be held on 10-12 December 2018 at the Manila Hotel and will evolve around the theme on “CBFM: Para sa Kalikasan at Kabuhayan”. This is line with its socio-economic and environmental objectives and the DENR’s advocacy that “Tayo ang Kalikasan”.
This event will highlight the “Search for Model Regional CBFM Peoples Organization 2018” where Regional winners will be awarded and will share good practices in CBFM.
