Is the climate change to blame or the denuded forest lands?
President Aquino’s administration has a new project wherein DENR would hire hundreds of Forestry graduates to supervise the reforestation of the country’s forest lands. This project is called National Greening Program. The NGP will launch massive reforestation which includes replanting of 1.5 trees on 1.5 million hectares of government-selected lots from this year until 2016. According to some people I know that live in rural areas, releasing of waters from dams also caused floods.
Well, I hope the government will succeed. Why only now they’ve thought about it? Sigh.
