DENR opens access to environment studies


    The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) has launched an online platform that will provide the public with access to various environmental studies generated by its Ecosystems Research and Development Bureau (ERDB).

    Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu said the platform hosts research findings and scientific publications that were used in formulating programs, policies and decisions of the agency.

    “Through the collective efforts of the scientists, experts, researchers and employees of the ERDB, the department gets to understand more about our environment and every little (thing) that goes with it… They spend months, even years, doing rigorous research to provide the department with the scientific knowledge that we need,” Cimatu said in a statement.

    Among those that can be downloaded from the web portal are the DENR’s official technical journal for new and original scientific information and research breakthroughs on ecosystems and natural resources; publications on science-based stories about ecosystems issues and solutions; as well as a compilation of knowledge on the propagation and planting techniques of important indigenous reforestation species.
