UPLB FDC-DENR book reveals successes of the National Greening Program

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Region 4A CALABARZON partnered with the Forestry Development Center (FDC) of the College of Forestry and Natural Resources (CFNR) in the University of the Philippines Los Baños in producing a book on the National Greening Program in Calabarzon (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon) which comprehensively captured experiences and lessons in implementing one of the flagship programs of the Pnoy administration, with the DENR as the main implementing agency.

The book, entitled Bringing out the Best of the National Greening Program: Success Stories and Best Practices in the CALABARZON Region, takes pride in showing the successful stories of the stakeholders—the DENR field offices, local government units, the academic community, other government agencies and the peoples’ organizations and upland communities— in pushing for well-rehabilitated and well-preserved forests in the region. The book describes the best practices of the stakeholders in achieving the goals of NGP in Calabarzon and how far the program has reached since its inception in 2011.

Dr. Antonio Carandang, director of the UPLB-CFNR’s FDC, in the book’s foreword, said, “The book serves as an important testament in articulating the good experiences of various stakeholders in the region which may serve as a guide and inspiration in upscaling the NGP.”

“There is more work to be done,” Carandang said, “But the indicators of success are not far behind. The participants are doing their roles and responsibilities (in achieving the goals of the program).”
