EV to Benefit from the 1 Billion Peso Mangrove Rehab Project
Mangrove and beach forest areas in Eastern Visayas which were devastated by Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) is set for rehabilitation using more scientific techniques in mangrove and beach forest development to enhance the region’s defense against calamities.
All DENR field offices have already embarked on the four major components of the project namely, site assessment and selection, community and partnership engagement, nursery establishment; and planting and outplanting activities. These activities are being closely coordinated with the Ecosystems Research and Development Bureau headed by Director Portia Lapitan to ensure that these activities are science based and ensure high survival rate of the mangrove species.
It cannot be discounted that communities with mangrove and beach forest cover were protected from the adverse impact of the storm surge compared to those hardly hit areas which have bare coastlines. There are also several recorded testimonies how mangrove vegetation saved people during calamities, specifically Super Typhoon Yolanda.
