DENR XI co-implements CLOA distribution to farmers












Department of Environment and Natural Resources-XI (DENR-XI) participates on the compassed Mindanao-wide Turnover & Distribution of Certificates of Land Ownership Award (CLOA) to Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries last August 2, 2019 in Davao City.

The DENR is one of the partner implementors of the said program by jointly identifying, together with the Department of Agrarian Reform, specific properties that may be covered under the Land Acquisition and Distribution component of Comprehensive Agrarian Reform (CARP).

DENR also issues a certification that the tract of land is within an area classified as alienable and disposable. In view of R.A. 6940, the DAR shall only cover, and, therefore, require the foregoing certification on lands which have been classified as alienable and disposable before 16 April 1960.

Further, DENR continuously supports the government on its pursuit of helping farmers and lifting the country’s farming industry.

Congratulations to the beneficiaries!


Environmental Warriors’ ideas laid through paper and lens

11-22 makakalikhasan contest winners

As the DENR XI believes in the power of youth’s profound and innovative ideas in matters of environmental protection, it once again conducted the “MakakaLIKHAsan” an Essay and Photo Contest. It is a two-day annual event that aims to earn the active participation and engagement of young environmental warriors through their piece of writing and photo material.

The essay writing revolves in the theme “One Planet. One Nation: Sustaining Green Actions for a Safer Climate.” to which, the New Corella National High School bagged the top place.

Its writer, Mary Chris D. Agarma, states in her piece entitled “Code Green: Diagnosing the Vital Signs of the Earth” that “we [people] are the leukocytes of the Earth and must work hand in hand as a nation and as a planet to protect the only home we have. The earth has long been diagnosed of a severe disease. Like treating chronic illness, necessary measures must be applied.” Strict implementation of environmental laws, reforestation and to look for other sources of renewable energy to not exhaust biofuel are among the writer’s recommendations.

The champion ended her piece with a diagnosis that the earth is “severely destructed, in need of immediate attention, care and restoration.”

For the photo contest, the Ateneo de Davao University which held the championship for two (2) consecutive years has once again bagged the top place. For this year, its entry was photographed by Anton Miguel Balagot with an engraved caption “Carbon Sequestration: A Quest for Life.”

Congratulations to all the participants- our young and creative environmental warriors and to their supportive coaches!

The DENR XI is looking forward to having you again.
