The Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) XII through the Mine Management Division conducted a Capacity Building and Training for Local Government Units in Region XII on December 2, 2021, via online Zoom application.

A total of thirty-six (36) personnel from the Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office (PENRO), Provincial Environment and Management Office (PEMO), City ENRO, and Municipal ENRO participated in the activity. The webinar aims to reinforce and improve technical capabilities and capacities, as well as to provide for a smoother transition of the LGU to deliver their devolved duties related to mining.

In his opening message, MGB XII Regional Director Efren B. Carido presented the rationale of the activity. He added that the capabilities of the LGUs need to be enhanced and strengthen to increase their potentials in accordance with the authority granted to them under the Local Government Code and under the DENR DAO 92-30 which states the Guidelines for the Transfer and Implementation of DENR Functions Devolved to the Local Government Units.

Furthermore, he said that the webinar will capacitate and equip ENROs in preparation of the devolved transition plan (DTP). It is also a venue to share experiences and knowledge on policies within their area of responsibility.

The Mines and Geosciences Bureau believes that an informed populace is vital in truly attaining disaster resilience. With this, we advise the public to equip themselves with knowledge on What to Do BEFORE, DURING, AND AFTER flood and rain-induced landslide events through these updated posters.
