4Ps recipients oriented on forest conservation
by Sheila B. Bakidan

Beneficiaries of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program in four barangays of Tabuk City were oriented on forest conservation and its benefits as part of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources’ campaign on environment awareness.

The information drive, held on Sept. 11, 12, and 18 to 20, was done using the family development sessions as its platform, which is the Department of Social Welfare and Development’s way of empowering the 4Ps beneficiaries through knowledge and skills they can acquire from these sessions and help them improve their living conditions.

The main topic presented was the different benefits of forest conservation through Power Point and video presentations on climate change. The topics were explained in Iloco and specifically focused on the products derived from the land and sea resources, the types of climate, the greenhouse gasses and its sources and effects; climate change and its relation to agriculture, its effects to the environment and human lives; and disasters, such as floods and landslides.

The DENR said having other agencies to share expertise with the 4P beneficiaries is considered as a strategy to strengthen the productive private-public partnership, in the form of either financial, livelihood, or technical assistance.

The participants learned that forest is life and trees act as carbon sink and alleviate the greenhouse effect. They also learned that plastic waste destroy the water ecosystem. With these, they resolved to have some plans and actions to protect and conserve the forests, like helping in the waste management programs of local governments and thinking of activities for additional income but at the same time conserve resources.
