DENR and AFoCo partner to improve the country’s reforestation program

THE DEPARTMENT of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and the Association of South East Asian Nation- Republic of Korea (ASEAN-ROK) Forest Cooperation (AFoCo) planned to establish a forest regional training center worth P700,000 in Candelaria town of Zambales that will enhance the knowledge and skills of forest managers and peoples’ organizations (PO) to better restore and protect the ASEAN region’s forest and fight global warming and climate change, environment official announced yesterday.

Orlando Panganiban, head of the forest resources management division of the DENR -Forest Management Bureau (FMB) said the ASEAN regional training center will serve as a demonstration area for the application of assisted natural regeneration (ANR) technology using the landscape approach to sustainable forest management and will benefit forest technician, including members of the PO.

“The center will develop and promote a 30-hectare demonstration area of ANR as a cost efficient way of regenerating forest by enhancing the establishment of secondary forest from degraded grassland and shrub vegetation by protecting and nurturing the mother trees and their wildlings inherently present in the area” he explained.

He said the objective of ANR is to accelerate, rather than replace, natural successional processes by removing or reducing barriers to natural forest regeneration such as soil degradation, competition with weedy species, and recurring disturbances like grass fire and grazing.
