PILAR, Bataan—Department of Environment and Natural Resources-Bataan said it would take the lead in accelerating information and education campaign on the rehabilitation and clean-up of the Manila Bay.

“The DENR Bataan is the chair of the Technical Working Group of the Manila Bay Rehabilitation Project Bataan. For 2015, we will accelerate the conduct of IEC for the rehabilitation and clean-up of Manila Bay with the other mandamus agencies,” said Mila Ramirez, DENR Bataan officer and focal person of Manila Bay Rehabilitation Project.

In a recent meeting of the TWG held in the DENR provincial office here, it was agreed to bring the different discussions on MANILABAYanihan Para Sa Kalikasan to all 12 towns of the province. 

The forum will be attended by barangay officials, students, and concerned citizens.

Aside from DENR as lead agency, other members of the TWG are Bataan provincial government, DPWH, DA-BFAR, PIA, and Bataan Peninsula State University.     

The MANILABAYanihan Para Sa Kalikasan was hatched by the DENR and concerned local government units around Manila Bay aiming to rehabilitate and revitalize the bay.

The DENR Bataan through the leadership of Penro Raul Mamac is in full swing implementing its programs that include National Greening Program, Handog Titulo, and Manila Bay Rehabilitation Project, among others.
