Cimatu asks for time to take in DENR duties
by DENR release

Newly installed Environment Sec. Roy Cimatu called for solidarity in protecting the country’s environment and natural resources during his assumption of office last May 10.

Cimatu, the 16th secretary since the agency was reorganized in 1987, said environmental protection requires teamwork among those in the DENR and stakeholders.

“I cannot do this alone. President Duterte cannot do this alone. We need all hands on deck,” Cimatu said.

“With teamwork, we can do so much more to accomplish our responsibilities,” he said.

Cimatu asked that he be given time to fully grasp the DENR and all its functions.

He admitted that the agency is a completely different field from the Armed Forces of the Philippines  that he headed and from being a special envoy for overseas Filipino workers.

Cimatu praised former Sec. Gina Lopez as he wished he could approximate her passion for the environment.

He described his predecessor as a “very passionate and ardent advocate of environmental protection and inclusive growth.”

The former military chief said his entry to the DENR is “even more challenging” as it came right after the “very heated confirmation debates” involving Lopez.

Cimatu said he will do his best as President Duterte’s point man in the daunting task of protecting our environment in all its forms.

He vowed to promote the wise and proper use of the country’s natural resources for the public good.

Cimatu served as the 29th AFP chief of staff in 2002.
