The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) that seeks to advance science-based policies and decision-making.

The agreement also aims to develop and implement high-impact forestry, natural resources and environment programs for a sustainable and resilient development of the country’s natural resources.

Environment Secretary Antonia Loyzaga and UPLB Chancellor Dr. Jose V. Camacho Jr. signed the agreement during the 4th International Conference on Integrated Natural Resources and Environment Management (INREM 2023) on November 21 in Manila. The conference has the theme “Future-proofing Sustainable Ridge-to-Reef Transformation through Integrated Natural Resources and Environment Management.”

“Our goal here with the MoU is to emphasize the DENR and UPLB’s shared vision and goal of having a sustainable and resilient natural resource management and environmental protection for our country,” Loyzaga said.

“It is our commitment to extend full cooperation and support to advance science and evidence-informed policy decision-making to revitalize the forestry sector, mindful of its effects on the adjacent environments including the coastal and marine sector, as well as maximizing these resources today, but also preserving them for generations to come,” she added.
