The Philippine Government consolidated and harmonized all greening efforts of the government, private sector, and civil society under the National Greening Program (NGP) in 2011 through Executive Order (EO) 26. The mandate of the program was in pursuit of sustainable development for poverty reduction, food security, biodiversity conservation, and climate mitigation and adaptation. NGP targeted to plant 1.5 billion trees covering 1.5 million hectares for a period of six (6) years from 2011 to 2016 in forestlands, mangrove and protected areas, ancestral domains, civil and military reservations, urban areas under Local Government Units (LGUs) greening plans, inactive and abandoned mine sites, and other suitable lands.
This project is funded by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) aimed to validate and determine the survival rate of the NGP established plantations from CY 2013-2015 in CALABARZON with land areas of 100 hectares and to evaluate the compliance of NGP Coordinators to the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) released by DENR.
