Employees of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Philippine Army (PA), Philippine National Police (PNP), Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP), partners from other government agencies, civil society organizations, and the local government unit of Dulag joined hands in developing the planting site which forms part of the Leyte Gulf Mangrove and Beach Forest Rehabilitation Project. This government project intends to safeguard coastal communities from the impacts of storm surge.

DENR Regional Director Leonardo Sibbaluca said the environment department believes that women effectively bring positive change into our environment. “Involving women in environmental activities is a way of recognizing them as potent partners in environmental protection and natural resources conservation,” he says.

DENR 8’s celebration of this year’s Women’s Month anchored on the theme “We make Change Work for Women,” kicked-off with the One Billion Rising campaign against sexual and physical violence. To foster awareness and empower women, a lecture series on anti-sexual harassment and violence against women and children was also held for DENR employees.

March was declared Women’s Month under Proclamation Nos. 224 and 227, while the first week of March was declared Women’s Week. March 8 is Women’s Rights and International Peace Day, and is known locally as National Women’s Day as declared by Philippine law.
