PLANET


FULFILLING THE VISION OF A GREEN AND RESILIENT PROVINCE

 

WE WILL PUSH FOR THE REGULATION OF PLASTICS IN THE PROVINCE. 

WE WILL BEGIN IN THE PROVINCIAL CAPITOL AND MAKE OUR WORKPLACE, PLASTIC FREE.

 

TO PROVE THAT GOLD AND GREEN CAN INDEED CO-EXIST, 

WE WILL PUSH FOR THE FULL OPERATIONALIZATION OF THE GREEN MINING PROCESSING PLANT

 AND THE REHABILITATION OF THE NABOC RIVER AND 

MAKE IT AS A MODEL OF ALL MINING COMMUNITIES IN THE PROVINCE.

WE WILL ALSO PREPARE OUR COMMUNITIES IN TIMES OF DISASTER.


PLANET: ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT AND DISASTER PREPAREDNESS


Golden are our forests and our waters. They are the source of our food, our livelihood and it protects us from disasters. Our priorities under Planet include the management of solid waste, the protection of water systems, greening and reforestation, the promotion of green and  responsible mining and effective disaster management. In 2018, our province recorded a waste diversion rate of 88 percent, higher than the 83 percent we achieved in 2014. This means that only twelve percent are dumped in our landfills and all the rest are recycled and re-used. This low level of waste is due to the passage of important policies such as the Provincial Solid Waste Management Plan that was approved in 2014.


DISASTER MITIGATING INFRASTRUCTURES

When the former Compostela Valley was inundated with Typhoon Pablo’s wrath, floods and landslides became a common disaster in the province. To lessen susceptibility of the communities to these disasters, the province allotted 37 million pesos from 2018 up to the present funding 19 disaster-mitigating infrastructure projects.

NABOC RIVER


Through the partnership of the Department of Environment and Natural

Resources (DENR), the Department of Public Work and Highways

(DPWH), Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) and the

Municipal Government of Monkayo, a master plan for the rehabilitation

The negotiation made by the Provincial Task Force Naboc River is a

get way in solving the relocation of various mining plants. Naboc River

became the “Catch Basin” for all substances used by the plants which

turned out to be polluted and damaged.

PENRO Chamberlain Babiera as the Chair Person and the Co-Chair

Persons were  Gov. Jayvee Tyron Uy , 25th IB Commander LTC Oscar

“Our efforts to clean up Naboc River is bearing fruit. We relentlessly

pursued for the rehabilitation of the Naboc River through the Provincial

Task Force-Naboc River. The river is the catch basin of all mining

wastes from the Diwalwal Mineral Reservation Area. Since 2017, we

campaigned for the relocation of CI plants and ballmills from Diwalwal

to Mabatas Area. We are very happy with this development. All thanks

to the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and the

Municipal Government of Monkayo led by Mayor RamilGentugaya, our

partners in this endeavour.Here’s for a greener and more responsible

mining industry in the province!” said Gov. Uy
