Bringing the government closer to the people is a major thrust of the DENR. This is the reason why DENR-CALABARZON was prompted to transfer its office from Manila to Calamba in Laguna.
In its continuing thrust to readily communicate to its clientele, a virtual office has been set-up—the DENR-CALABARZON website. Now, the information can be accessed at the click of a finger—anytime, anywhere, and by anybody.
In this website, we will endeavor to provide to all our clientele the programs of DENR-CALABARZON, current policies and regulations on the environment and its natural resources, the current environmental situation, how issues and concerns on the protection of the environment and utilization of its natural resources are being addressed and resolved. This is also the window for receiving feedback from our stakeholders.
To our partners and clients, may we invite you to browse our website for any information that you might need. We welcome also your feedback on our performance in enhancing our website.
This is a modest step in our commitment to provide, “Matapat, Matuwid, at Mabilis na Serbisyo”.
DENR "Agos ng Buhay" Program to Set Stage in CALABARZON, Nationwide
"Healthy oceans, healthy people," the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) - Biodiversity Management Bureau (BMB) stresses the importance of healthy coastal and marine ecosystems in the lives of the people.
The Philippines, as an archipelago, is surrounded by bodies of water such as seas, bays, lakes, and rivers.
In the CALABARZON (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon) Region can be found a number of water bodies like the South China Sea, Taal Lake and Pansipit River in Batangas; the Philippine Sea, Tayabas Bay, Lamon Bay and Ragay Gulf in Quezon; Laguna de Bay in Laguna and Rizal; and Manila Bay, which drains the watershed areas of the provinces of Laguna, Cavite and Rizal.
Fishing has always been an important source of livelihood for Filipinos, especially for communities in coastal areas. Fish is still the primary source of animal protein in the Philippines with annual per capita consumption at kilograms.
Unfortunately, some small and large-scale fishermen engage in unsustainable fishing practices that result in habitat degradation and fish stock depletion.
BMB records show that nearly 73% of coastal and marine ecosystems are degraded, with cost of inaction estimated at Three Billion Pesos (PhP 3B) annually.
