2nd PAMB Summit

           The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) in this region will host the 2nd Regional Protected Area Management Board (PAMB) Summit on May 15-17, 2018 in Zamboanga City.

 This event will be attended by concerned stakeholders composed of members of the Protected Area Management Boards coming from the twelve (12) declared protected areas, terrestrial, coastal and marine, which is under the National Integrated Protected Areas System (NIPAs) and within the administrative jurisdiction of DENR – IX.

The gathering, which is also co-sponsored by Protect Wildlife, will serve as a venue to provide emphasis on the importance of support system outlining the respective roles of stakeholders for an effective protected area management; gain strong support both from the management (DENR) and the local government units; know the latest updates in protected areas management; and to create the Regional PAMB Executive Committee which will link and strengthen ties with other Protected Areas under the Mindanao PAMB Network.

Thus, it is expected that this event will gauge and further push the stakeholders involvement, participation, effort and willingness to intensify protection activities and serve as catalyst on sustainable development for these remaining bastions of natural resources in this region. (RPAO-IX)
