In celebration of World Environment Month, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources Regional Office No. 8 has lined up a series of activities in the month of June for its regional office employees, line bureaus, as well as its satellite provincial offices. With the theme “Beat Air Pollution,” activities geared towards raising awareness about the current state of the environment were organized.

One of the activities in line is the “In-House Lecture Series for Environment Month Celebration,” a lecture series involving DENR and its line bureaus, the Environmental Management Bureau Regional Office No. 8 and the Mines and Geosciences Bureau Regional Office No. 8. This lecture series has been scheduled every Friday of the month, at the DENR Conference Room in Tacloban City. Participants are comprised of 50 from the DENR RO8, and 10 each from EMB and MGB.

Topics included in the lecture series include the Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation, Update on Wildlife Resource Coastal Zone Management in Region 8, Geohazard and Disaster Prone Areas in Eastern Visayas, and the Best Practices on Ecological Solid Waste Management in Region 8. As for MGB, the designated topic is that of the Geohazard and Disaster Prone Areas in Eastern Visayas.

Last June 7, 2019, the lecture series commenced with the expected line up of topics. Presentation on Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation, as well as the Update on Wildlife Resource Coastal Zone Management in Region 8, were delivered by key personnel from DENR RO8. Discussion on Geologic Hazards followed, presented by Rodrigo Jay B. Miralles, Geologist II of MGB 8. During his presentation, he highlighted rain-induced landslide and flood hazards present in Eastern Visayas. Shortly after him, a representative from EMB RO8 talked about the Best Practices on Ecological Solid Waste Management in Region 8.

The lecture series is expected to continue on June 21 and 28, 2019 with a different set of participants per schedule.
