of joining supply chains.” However, this becomes less relevant in the longer term. “SMEs may form clusters or embark on niche market strategies to overcome the disadvantages of firm size,” he pointed out. Efficiency also improves an SME’s chances of joining the supply chain. Firms that invest in technological capabilities and skills training, have ISO certification and product patents, and have a workforce that is educated have an advantage. At the same time, access to commercial banks is likewise a plus, while the age of the company is equally influential. Surprisingly, the study finds that younger firms are likely to be more nimble in joining supply chain trade than older firms as they more easily use information and knowledge. In addition, foreign ownership is a plus, since it facilitates participation in the supply chain trade through access to marketing and technological knowhow. The Southeast Asian SMEs surveyed, meanwhile, identified many barriers to their supply chain participation, said Wignaraja. On the supply side, these include the lack of access to finance, high electricity costs, poor transport systems, inadequately educated workers, the high cost of Internet connection, and

labor regulations. On the policy side, they raised issues against tax rates and administration, customs and trade regulations, business licensing, and political uncertainty and economic instability. Other concerns aired involve crime, corruption, and practices of competitors in the informal sector. In addressing these hindrances, Wignaraja underscored the importance of

Carbon sink project, model of environmental rehabilitation By BONG D. FABE, Contributing Editor

CUGMAN, Cagayan de Oro City--“If you leave a logged over and denuded forest alone, it will become a forest again in several years. But if we help through sustainable forest rehabilitation, we can fast track the process by a few more years,” said Dr. Cesar Nuevo.

Sustainable forest rehabilitation is the natural or intentional restocking of existing forests and woodlands that have been depleted or denuded with the aim of returning the forest in some degree to its former if not full glory. And this is what STEAG State Power, Inc. (SPI) is undertaking in upland Cagayan de Oro City in partnership with the E. Pelaez Ranch, Inc. (EPRI) and t he E nv i ron me n tal Management Bureau (EMB) of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources in Region 10 (DENR-10). The program, called the Mapawa Carbon Sink Project, entails reforesting at least 1,200 hectares for 25 years and aims to (1) establish a 500 hectare forest plantation, (2) maintain and protect another 500 hectare existing forest plantation; and (3) conduct Timber Stand Improvement (TSI) in a 200-hectare natural forest. This is one of the biggest private-sector-led reforestation projects in Mindanao and is being undertaken as part of SPI’s corporate social responsibility to reduce its carbon footprint as well as reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs). The Mapawa Carbon Sink Project is one of the reasons why SPI has not been cited for any violation of environmental laws since it began operating Mindanao’s first coal-fired power plant in 2006. “Mas ni-presko karon tungod sa mga kahoy. Ang among tubig walay pagkahubas tungod sa mga kahoy. Niadtong hulaw sa 2006 nga

nilangtud of unom ka mga bulan, hubas gayud among katubigan diri. Pero karon, wala na gyud mahubas,” said Christopher Rivera of the Forest Management Services of EPRI. The difference in the atmosphere is very palpable. Mapawa is noticeably cooler than the rest of Cagayan de Oro. The once pasture-lease area, with only 67 hectares of natural forest left, is slowly being restored to its natural beauty with presently 200 hectares of planted forest now home to countless indigenous tree species, numerous native herbs and flowers, animals and wildlife. “When I came here in 1995, this area was all brown and very hot during summer. But we now have a forest cover and vegetative growth has returned. A great portion of the area, malamig na. We now have a natural airconditioning,” said Nuevo, general manager of the Mapawa Industrial Forest. “Malaki ang effect nito sa environment. Dumami na ibon natin dito. When I started here, I only saw two birds, the maya (sparrow) and the uwak (raven). But now, even in the office, I can hear different birds singing,” he said. Birdwatchers have also started visiting Mapawa. So far, 108 species of both local and migratory birds have been identified in the project area. “We have here the Silvery Kingfisher,” Nuevo said. This endemic bird draws the birdwatcher to Mapawa and helps make

vibrant niche tourism in the city. “The return of wildlife [such as civet (melo or musang)] means that we now have a healthy environment here compared to the past. But how we would like it to be, we still have a long way to go,” he added. Surrounding communities and “social cultivators” or IFMA area workers who also cultivate farms in the area make it easier to man-

age and protect the forest. “From 2007 to 2009, many fires broke out, especially during summer, but social cultivators and the surrounding communities help prevented much of the fire. The most the fire damaged was only 2 hectares,” Rivera said. “So far, 100% of our forest protection problems have been lessened by at least 70% because of social cultivators and the communities.”

Because its many waterways never run dry, Mapawa is the source of abundant potable water to at least three surrounding barangays. “Many don’t know this, but we are the source of potable water in the Sendong relocation area in Barangay Indahag,” Rivera said. The Carbon Sink Project is one program of SPI that is “hitting two birds with one stone” as it helps

restore biodiversity and ecological balance in the area, mitigate global warming, make a vibrant niche tourism, provide livelihood to surrounding communities as well as provide potable water source to several barangays. Thus, Nuevo proudly said that the Mapawa Carbon Sink Project is considered a model sustainable forestry rehabilitation project. (Bong D. Fabe)

part of the truth. The rest is that he is concerned with American interests. During World War II, the British and Americans were comrades in arms. Even after the war, the Americans knew that they could count on the British to join their battles, despite the United Kingdom’s waning power. Now, however, there is a growing fear in Washington that the British are out of the international power game: They are militarily weak and increasingly paralyzed by domestic issues. Hence, they are nowhere near the center of European power, which has now concentrated around Germany and France. C omment ator G ero Schliess is very true in saying, that analysis is generally correct. The budget cuts of the past several years have seriously hindered the ability of the British armed forces to partake in global interventions. Their throttled combat missions against the “Islamic State” (IS) offer final evidence of that. One seeks a British presence in the Ukraine crisis in vain, with Germany now playing the central role there. The same goes for crisis management in Greece.

‘Rufus’ to join local political fray All eyes are looking at Rep. Rufus Rodriguez, second district, Cagayan De Oro City, as the filing of the Certificates of Candidacy in October this year gets nearer. Not one or two, but many are speculating that Rodriguez, now in his last term in Congress, would throw his towel in to join the local political fray. Will Rodriguez take the bait? This is a $ 64 question. In a talked with this writer, Rufus said that he has lots of options in his mind. Considering all options, the Congressman prefers to help in the campaign for a national candidate come 2016. Well, Rufus might have some reasons. In 1998, he served as one of the campaign stalwarts of Presidential candidate Erap Estrada then. When Estrada won the presidency, Rufus became the Commissioner of the powerful Bureau of Immigration (BI) in Manila while becoming a presidential spokesperson on the sideline.

as a Senator. In one of our rare Mindanao wide meetings, the curious grape vines asked this writer of Rufus intention to run for the Senate. Of course, I could not answer the question directly other than replying with the common response: “Let us wait and see.” Personally, I could boost Rufus potential as a Senatorial bet. However, Rufus has resigned to the possible expense involved in launching a nationwide political campaign. Aside from having a fleet of campaign vehicles, a Senatorial bet would need one private jet and a helicopter to cover the expanse of the country’s 81 provinces - divided into component cities and municipalities. The media and campaign materials would definitely get half or more of the total campaign funds. Once, I remembered when the head of the media bureau that covers the Visayas and Mindanao, on a short notice, ordered a private plane to pick and wait for me at the local airport

for a conference in Ilo-ilo. I left on the same day and apologized to the pilot for waiting since I have to take a bath before leaving. In Ilo-ilo, we stayed in one of the posh hotels in the city where we held discussions and adopt campaign strategies and strategic communication for the entire country. We also talked about “campaign operations” and on how to execute the plans. Afterwards, we went home with individual plane tickets in our name. Fortunately, the candidate won in that election. A senatorial candidate must have, at least, Php 500 million or more in his war chest to be able to meet the required logistics on the campaign trail. Perhaps, Rufus realized this that he is adamant to pursue his senatorial bid. If not in the senate, then the local political arena would best serve Rufus political future. What makes Rufus hesitant? We will discuss the possible answers soon. -0send comments/reaction: crisguardian@yahoo.com

Klaus Doring

A referendum on the United Kingdom’s EU membership is scheduled to take place before the end of 2017. The risk of a victory by Euro-skeptics is serious. This will demand the full attention of the government, with little energy left over to maintain Great Britain’s role as an indispensable nation. When parliament refused to approve a mandate for the British air force to participate in attacks on IS strongholds in Syria, many in Washington saw it as a definitive departure from that role. If one look back in history, one sees that Great Britain has long been an important intermediary between the United States and Europe. It is a country with which the United States shares many interests. It was

after all, the British who raised European awareness for the importance of interventionist foreign and security policy, and who have kept the concept alive. And above all, it has been the British who have consistently argued for the liberalization of European markets and global freetrade in unison with the United States. In that sense, the United Kingdom is indeed the “best partner” that the US could hope for, as Obama has said. Even if Prime Minister Cameron is able to convince his countrymen of the importance of remaining in the EU, this will only slow Britain’s loss of relevance, and not stop the tectonic shifts of power that are taking? place in Europe. At the moment, momentum is moving toward another country: Germany. United States of Europe? This might remain as an impossible dream and can never be compared with the United States of America. +++ Email: doringklaus@ gmail.com or follow me in Facebook or Twitter or visit www.germanexpatinthephilippines.blogspot.com or www.klausdoringsclassicalmusic.blogspot.com.

Social Problems and Its Implication to Education By JenemEr B. Puyos T-III San Jose Elementary School Quezon-I District

These eight social problems such as corruption, poverty, overpopulation, child labor inadequate health care terrorism, prostitution and unemployment greatly affect our lives. I really ask myself why we have these big problems when we have great and clever leaders. Why these problems are remain unsolved and rampant now a days. Is it because people have no satisfaction of what they have, that leads them into corruption? Overpopulation is experience, is it because we lack of family planning? Why prostitution is there, is it because parents mislead their children? Why child labor, inadequate health care, terrorism and unemployment are also a social problem in our society? Who is be to blame the

parents or the government? I think we could not blame others because every good and bad endeavors always stars in a big two letters only that means so much, it is “ME”. I realized that it’s not too late if not to solve totally the problem but at least, as a teacher and government employee, I can be an instrument to minimize corruption, child labor and even prostitution. It is believe that teacher is the mirror of most of the school children in the society, even the people around the community has great respect and honour to the teacher for they know that the teacher is the main contributor to good education. A teacher is the main source of knowledge and good values for children. Teacher is one of the main pillars of a sound and progressive society. In this connection, I know it is hard but it is a

must that being a teacher I should be a good model both in deeds and in words. I believe also that it is my responsibility to render an advice to every young mind to have a good reputation and look for a good job to have a better source of income. The most important thing a teacher can do, which I believe that matter most, is to help every parent to mould their children the way the teaching of Jesus Christ, which is the virtuous values, that includes integrity and honesty. I strongly believe that once a person is honest and with integrity there will be no corruption, the there will be no poverty, no child labor, no prostitution, or may be no more terrorism and everybody will be employed. A teacher who cares for his/her pupils is going to help individuals to succeed in their life in the future.

Garbage not toxic, says Canadian envoy Editorial: e-mail: mindanaodailynews@gmail.com • Advertising: e-mail: mindanaodaily.ads@gmail.com Contact: 0917-7121424, 0947-8935776

CANADIAN Ambassador to the Philippines Neil Reeder admitted he is not privy to the shipment agreement between a private sector firm in Canada and the consignee in the Philippines regarding the more than 50 container vans of garbage now rotting in the container yard of the Bureau of Customs (BOC) in the Port area. In a press conference in Iloilo City on Thursday, the Canadian envoy said the matter was brought to the attention of the Embassy recently after the container vans were opened to reveal garbage of household wastes and plastics. But definitely, these are not toxic wastes and

the Embassy is looking for better solutions in cooperation with the Philippine government how to dispose this garbage. The Ambassador also admitted that so far, the Canadian government does not have a legislation to enforce the shipment back to the original country. He is also amenable that Philippine Congress will undertake an investigation regarding the garbage shipment and to find the best solutions. Earlier, five container vans of Canadian garbage were disposed in Capas, Tarlac. However, local government units along the way protested the dumping and the disposal were initially stopped. PNA

Farmlands in Caraga still productive: expert BUTUAN City––Large portion of the lands in Caraga region intended for agricultural development have been placed under “fertility mapped” and found to be still largely productive, according to a senior official of the regional Department of Agriculture-Bureau of Soils and Water Management in a recent forum. Marcelo P. Dayo, regional coordinator of the DA’s Bureau of Soil and Water Management, said that they already have conducted “fertility mapping” in Agusan del Sur province and Butuan City. Fertility mapping had been also conducted in the municipalities of Dinagat, Dinagat Province and Siargao in Surigao del Norte. Similar activities are still on-going in the other provinces and municipalities of Caraga, he said. According to Dayo, soil analysis on some portions of the mapped areas showed that soil acidity is the main problem. He however said that the large portion of the agricultural lands mapped were found to be fertile and productive, adding that the problematic areas can still be corrected by “liming.” The official pointed out that areas in the region such as a banana plantation area in Tandag, Surigao del Sur

and a portion of land planted with durian in the province had been checked through “liming” thus restoring their productivity in six months after lime application. He also said that organic farming and the less usage of synthetic fertilizers will help check soil acidity. Rhodielyn Bacsarpa of the Regional Soils Laboratory of DA-RFO 13 said that large portion of the sample soils brought to their office for analysis from the agricultural areas have yielded tolerable if not less acidic results. Most of the soil samples showing high acidity results, she said, came from the mining areas of the region. She however said that the soil acidity of the See farmlands, page A11

CBCP to give formation on climate change NOTING that climate change is a “social justice issue,” the country’s top prelates have promised to offer the public pastoral formation on the various concerns the phenomenon raises ahead of the Paris Summit. Symposia, confabs “We your bishops commit to organize symposia and conferences on the issues that will be taken up at the Paris around of the climate change negotiations, as desired by Pope Francis,” says Lingayen-Dagupan Archbishop Socrates B. Villegas, president of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), in a July 20 circular. “Meaningful participation and debate are premised on sound information and adequate knowledge. In these matters it is part of moral responsibility to inform oneself,” he adds. Direct action However, Villegas stresses that more direct and immediate action can and should be taken, calling on parishes and Basic Ecclesial Communities (BEC) to make the discussion on environmental degradation and the disruption of the ecosystem the theme of their collective discernment. “Mining, incineration, and landfills are among the local concerns that immediately come to mind. Here, advocacy of Church communities in behalf of the common good should influence policy makers and translate itself into community action as well,” he explains. Climate-linked suffering Villegas laments that climate change has brought about suffering for nations, communities, and peoples. Quoting Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI in the encyclical “Deus Caritas Est” (God is Love), such suffering is the kind that “cries out for consolation and help” (n. 28). “When they who are in need cry out, it is not an

Lumads refuse to leave Davao evacuation center By Antonio L. Colina IV of MindaNews

Bro. Edcel L. Closas

Jesus was a victim of injustice from his brother. The image of the gospel is realistic since there are unequal distribution of wealth and injustices around us. The good point of this person is; he came to Jesus for helped. This means, Jesus is our refuge if we are victims of social injustices. Everything which is uncontrollable to your life, leave it to God. Do not force a certain thing to happen because everything has its own time. Ecclesiastes 3:1”There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven. I believe that God has a perfect timing for everything in your life most especially if you will approach him for help: Printing paid by: Neneth Ranoa Bobong Balino- Edith Ranoa, PhD- Tony Jordan – Cagayan De Oro: My new number: 09187148435: God loves you!!!

DAVAO City--Amid a commotion as policemen in anti-riot gear stormed the Haran Evacuation Center where lumads have holed up for months, the evacuees refused to leave during the interagency rescue operation held Thursday. In a phone interview, Kerlan D. Fanaqel, secretary general of the Pasaka Confederation of Lumad Organization in Southern Mindanao, said the lumads maintained their stand to stay because the problem on militarization in their communities the group has been demanding to be stopped has not yet been granted. The interagency group that conducted the rescue operation is composed of the Commission on Human Rights (CHR), National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP), Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), and Davao City Police Office

(DCPO). Some 700 lumads fled their homes in Talaingod and Kapalong in Davao del Norte and San Fernando in Bukidnon after allegedly displaced by military operations and sought refuge at the facility run by the

United Church of Christ in the Philippines (UCCP). Fanaqel lambasted the so-called rescue operation, saying the eviction was done in the guise of saving mothers, children, and the persons with disabilities (PWDs).

He said the operation did not go through a proper process and contradicted an earlier agreement. “They did it despite the existing agreement between us, officials of the DSWD, and the religious group that we will not be forced to go home,” he said. The interagency group arrived at the center around 6:30 a.m. and left almost 1 p.m. only after Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte mediated when the commotion between authorities and lumads ensued. Fanaqel added that Rep. See lumads, page A11 NOTICE

An interagency government group said it wanted to rescue the lumads and let them return to their homes, but only two of the 700 or so lumads went home. The lumads have been staying at the compound for three months after allegedly leaving their communities due to militarization. MindaNews photo by Toto Lozano

Nancy Catamco, who has been barred from entering the evacuation center after she had been declared persona non grata by the lumads on Wednesday, was seen in a vehicle nearby but did not go out until Duterte arrived. The lumads blocked the gate when authorities forced their way in. Some 20 lumads were reportedly injured while two policemen were seriously hurt. Senior Insp. Milgrace Driz, DCPO spokesperson, said one of the policemen vomited blood. “We only defended ourselves. We made it a point not to hurt anybody,” Fanaqel said. Driz said Mayor Rodrigo Duterte provided 10 buses and 12 trucks coming from the local government units where the lumads come from. All but two lumads refused to leave. Driz said a mother and her daughter voluntarily went out of the evacuation center because they were suffering from illness after almost three months of staying there. “They also wanted to leave because no one was looking after their home,” she added.

“The DCPO is just doing our job as mandated by law, we are just securing both parties and since we are requested by the DSWD and the NCIP to assist them on their mandate with the rescue operation, we deployed our [Women and Children’s Protection Desk] to assist in the rescue,” she said in a text message. The DCPO deployed around 500 cops, 150 of them from the WCPD. Driz appealed to the groups behind this not to force the lumads to stay if they want to leave. “I hope they will not be detained or padlocked [in the evacuation center. If they want to leave, let them go,” she said, adding that the lumads are apparently being exploited.

Valte downplayed questions whether Malacañang is alarmed by these developments, given the fact that INC is known as an influential religious group whose members vote as a bloc in every election.

“‘Yung sa ‘vote as a bloc,’ hindi po natin napag-uusapan ito, in light of the recent incident. But, again, mayroon na ho tayong… Kumbaga, ang NBI nagpadala na po sila ng kanilang team, at tingnan na lang po natin,” Valte said. “I can say that since this happened, of course, we’re aware of it because it has been plastered all over the news. But, beyond that, medyo marami din pong ibang napapagtuunan ng pansin ang Pangulo,” she added. The NBI is verifying serious allegations of harassment and abduction involving some ministers and members of the INC, as claimed by Felix Nathaniel ‘Angel’ Manalo in a video posted on YouTube this week, which then spread out to various social media platforms. Angel is grandson to INC’s founding father Felix, son to the late executive

minister, Eraño, and brother to the current leader, Eduardo. In the video, which ran under two minutes, Angel and his mother, Tenny, claimed that their lives were in danger and were seeking help from the public. They also appealed to their fellow INC members to aid the families of the ministers who allegedly disappeared and are yet to be found. Angel and the other ministers are reportedly questioning some of the big-ticket projects of the INC, including the construction of the 0-million or P7.8-billion Philippine Arena within the 50-hectare Ciudad de Victoria property of the religious group in Bocaue, Bulacan. The INC administration denied the allegations of corruption, harassment and abduction, and has since expelled some of its members, including Angel

and his mother. PNA

to respond. It is an obligation,” he says. Social justice According to Villegas, the Church’s social encyclicals refer to social justice as that which guarantees that the resources of earth and society as well as the progress of nations benefit all social classes and groups. The Pangasinan prelate points out that concern with the despoliation of the ecosystem and the disturbance of that balance of everything that makes up the human environment has underscored that

social justice must include responsibility for future generations. Common good “The notion of the common good also extends to future generations. The global economic crises have made painfully obvious the detrimental effects of disregarding our common destiny, which cannot exclude those who come after us.
