DENR Calabarzon takes another step to go ‘paperless’

         Select 'document trackers' of the DENR Region 4A CALABARZON Regional Office gathered in conference on Tuesday, July 12, 2016, to concretize moves to implement ways to effectively manage and systematically track important documents and using the e-Document Action Tracking System (e-DATS). Dennis Segovia Jr., regional Information Systems Analyst from the Planning and Management division discussed the process and salient points of the System.

         The e-DATS is an initiative of the DENR Central Office to facilitate the monitoring of documents in the whole department, including the regional, provincial and community environment offices.

           Segovia said, "Eventually, all document actions will be done through the e-DATS, achieving the department’s aim to go paperless. The newly-introduced system will also address the problems in document action delays and archiving that has been plaguing the offices for a long time."

            He stressed on the importance of the e-DATS: how to access it, how does one receive and send documents, and how does it make tracking documents more efficient.

            He said that as of now those attending are those in-charge of keeping the documents in their respective divisions and are the ones provided with e-DATS accounts. As part of the DENR's efforts to implement effective document management and in the spirit of transparency in dealing with the public, Segovia concluded, “Soon, all employees will have an e-DATs account, as we (DENR employees) are all action officers.” (With Vera Merano, Administrative Assistant, RPAO)

DENR Calabarzon People’s Day: “Happy ang New Year”

 The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Region 4A has once again celebrated People’s Day on January 9, 2017.

Among the participants are representatives of PKMM (Pambansang Katipunan ng Makabayang Magbubukid), a people’s organization composed of local farmers and fishers from Barangay Dinahican, Infanta, Quezon, who aired their concern on the confiscation of wood allegedly illegally sourced from Palanan, Isabela. They said they were supposed to use the wood for repairing their wrecked boats.
“Paano ang aming hanapbuhay?” one of the members said, expressing his worry that they might not be able to continue fishing, hence, could no longer provide for their families.

Regional Director Reynulfo Juan said that he is all for supporting livelihood. Understanding their plight, he provided them with possible solutions to help their situation: “Pwede akong gumawa ng endorsement letter sa BFAR (Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources), may binibigay silang libre[ng bangka], o kaya pwede namin kayo matulungan sa paghahanap ng makukuhanan ng kahoy”, he stated.

He asked them to specify the kinds of wood they need to repair their boats so that the Office could assist them in looking for legal sources. He also assured them that it will be verified whether or not the apprehension was conducted properly.

Another concern of the group was a problem regarding the rightful owner of the land they are residing in. Accordingly, there are two groups claiming the land: the Magallanes and the Maharlikans. The complaining party conveyed that they are confused as to whom they should pay their dues, as the Magallanes drives them away every time they cannot pay them.

“Magko-conduct tayo ng investigation. Kailangang malaman kung ano ang land classification, sino ang occupant, at sino ang claimant” Juan said. He also asked the residents to be present during the investigation.

On the other hand, some residents of Barangay Tunha, Famy, Laguna relayed their petition to cancel the survey plan of a certain Mr. Sotalbo, who was given survey authority despite him not having a land title. The residents are now facing the threat of possibly losing their homes to demolition. At present, the case has been brought to the court.
