DENR to establish satellite office of EMB-National Ecology Center in TCA
CAMILING, Tarlac-Department of Environment and Natural Resources has inked a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with Tarlac College of Agriculture (TCA) for the establishment of a satellite office of the Environmental Management Bureau (EMB) National Ecology Center in the latter’s campus.
“This partnership seeks to develop a core of facilitators who can adopt a comprehensive ecological solid waste management program in their respective local government units (LGUs) as well as develop courses that seeks to protect public health and the environment,” EMB Director Jonas Leones said.
Specifically, it wants to increase the awareness and familiarity of facilitators in conducting waste study that would lead them in designing interventions targeting identified solid waste issues and educate them in using existing technologies and coming up with innovations and treatments.
“Under this MOA, we shall take the lead in the development of training modules and conduct training courses not only for LGUs but also for technicians, farmers, leaders, academicians, junk shop operators, and environmentalists among others,” TCA President Max Guillermo explained.
The satellite office shall likewise have readily available information, education, and communication materials relative to the advocacy and shall strengthen the linkages among its stakeholders. (Carlo Lorenzo J. Datu)
