‘Environmental payback scheme’

DAVAO City––A major watershed in Mindanao is being eyed for the implementation of Payment for Ecosystem Services (PES), an incentive mechanism designed to strengthen management of natural resources and ecosystems that provide goods and services to the public and key industries. The Libungan Watershed, a 52,820-hectare located in Cotabato province is being considered for PES to encourage the efficient

and sustainable use of the resources that are being provided by the watershed and its surrounding areas. A watershed is described as an area of land that contains common set of streams and rivers that drain into a single larger body of water. The Libungan Watershed is home to eco-tourism sites and two river irrigation systems (RIS) that provide water to 9,255 hectares of rice lands, a major crop that

One too many candidates in MisOr Who could be the worthy opponent of Rep. Juliet Uy in 2016? With no apparent opponent in sight, some are saying that the reelection of Juliet Uy has been in the bag. In spite of the skepticism, there are few material candidates who could be Juliet’s real threat. Well, town mayor Oloy Emano, of Tagolo-an, is one of them. However, many doubts if Oloy could sustain the rigors of campaign during the election period. By the way, the election period starts in January next year while the actual campaign period for the local candidates would start on March 25, 2016 until May 7, 2016. Granting that Oloy would not throw his hat in the Congressional race in Misamis Oriental’s second district, who could be the probable candidates. There is one too many. For instance, provincial board member Heckert “Manok” Emano is a potential candidate. If Juliet

has Villanueva, Heckert has Tagolo-an on his side. In past elections, the combined result of the triumvirate towns of Tagoloan, Villanueva, and Claveria, in the province second district, could change the fate of a candidate. Anyway, many believed that only the Emanos could nip Juliet’s political career in Misamis Oriental. Thus, aside from Heckert Emano, there are other Emanos who might not only rely on the family’s political legacy, but also on their personal capability and proven track record in public service. Yes, there are suggestions in the political corners that Juliet Uy’s political career would be imperiled if the right candidate comes. These political pundits are referring to Nadia Emano, currently serving as City Councilor of Cagayan De Oro. As a lawyer and as proven public servant, Nadia is not only a potential candidate. In fact, Nadia has all

the qualities as a winnable candidate. Let us take a look: Although Juliet served as the town mayor of Villanueva before she was elected to Congress, she has not proven herself as a legislator. While Juliet might have authored various proposed Bills in Congress, nothing is heard of them. Nobody knows what the law has Juliet authored and fought for in Congress. That is understandable. Being an accountant whose eyes is in the numbers, the drafting

of laws and legislations is not in Juliet’s cup of tea. In other words, the people of Misamis Oriental should elect someone who must have a little background about the law. Otherwise, we would be electing people who would be paid by the taxpayers’ money for nothing. Did anyone realize that we have these kind of elected Congressmen whose only job is to cough in the plenary session to get attention? Ridiculous. So, why Nadia? As a lawyer, Nadia fits the title as the representative of the people in the province’s second district. She would certainly file various important laws that the present time so demand. As a lawyer, Nadia knows how to translate the emotions of her constituents into tangible legislations that would alleviate the plight of the people of Misamis Oriental. -0- Send comments/ reaction: crisguardian@ yahoo.com

liance with Moreno. Unless, Klarex would stay neutral. Klarex has already proven that he is a formidable candidate in Cagayan de Oro--not just in the first district--when he nearly won against then Vice Mayor Vicente Emano in a mayoralty race in 2010. As the filing of the Certificates of Candidacy (COCs) is still way ahead, what Rufus did remain to be seen. By the way, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) will officially accept COC from any political aspirant starting October 12 until October 16, 2015. As of now, we can consider Rufus announcement as a tool to discourage other would-be mayoral aspirants from running. Moreno is running for mayor, and so Rufus, and the come-backing Vicente Emano. What an exciting mayoralty race in Cagayan de Oro City. If Moreno will be reelected, he will be judged by the voters based on his political jingle: “Hapsay nga pang gobyerno.” Did Rufus and Klarex help Moreno to materialize the “hapsay government” and “hapsay dalan” campaign slogan? This early, I would like to congratulate Moreno--and

his former allies (I hope will not happen)–– for the success of their “hapsay” political slogan. They {Moreno, Klarex, and Rufus} have eased agonies of commuters and pedestrians. A sufferings that the Emano administration has failed to address for quite some time. Under the hapsay system, the narrow roads in Divisoria are now wider, free from double parking, and free from vendors and other obstructions. Under the hapsay dalan, heavy traffic is no longer true in the city of Cagayan de Oro unlike during the Emano administration where vendors are allowed to sell good in the middle of the streets. Also under the hapsay dalan and hapsay nga pang gobyerno, order in almost all of the public markets has been restored unlike during the Emano administration. Oh, and if Moreno’s administration faltered, please do not blame him because you gave him councilors who are more “babag” and not “kaabag.” Moreno did his best, but his best wasn’t good enough thus he needs one more chance. For sure, Moreno would still be able to put up a good fight against Emano and Rufus with Klarex at his side.

But Rufus did, a decision which Moreno said he: It is his right and we must respect it.” Moreno was right, Rufus should have had declared his intention to run for mayor earlier. It may seem that Moreno was stabbed in the back in the process, but whatever it is, that is politics. Some say: “There is no such thing as permanent friends in politics, only enemies.” In politics, the normal cycle is: “Friend today, foe tomorrow.” Unlike in the first district, Rufus is still in trouble should Klarex retains his al-

“Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.” -Ephesians 4:29 Go one step beyond not using abusive language. Instead of trying to just stay neutral in difficult situations, provide

words of encouragement. There are many situations in which anger can creep up, such as when your spouse forgets to take out the trash, pay a bill, or pick up eggs from the store. Remember to be patient, understanding and forgiving, and then let your spouse know how much you appreciate them.

House urged to probe fair use policy of Telcos A lawmaker has called for a congressional inquiry into the implementation and impact of the Fair Use Policy (FUP) of telecommunications company (Telcos) allegedly shortchanging the country’s Internet consumers. Rep. Jonathan A. Dela Cruz (Party List, ABAKADA) said Congress should investigate, in aid of legislation; the implementation of the “Fair Use Policy” (FUP) on Internet users involving the scrapping of the telecommunications’ approved “unlimited” (UNLI) marketing program and capping a user’s Internet connection upon reaching a certain volume of data. “Considering that the Asian region boasts of having the first and second fastest internet speeds in the world, the latest survey shows that we are just a notch above Afghanistan, a war torn country, as the laggard among Asian coun-

tries in terms of internet speed - a dubious distinction which can be made even more damning with the implementation of the FUP,” Dela Cruz said. He said: “Also, this policy may actually run counter to the avowed goals of the country’s telecommunications development plan including the ‘roll out’ commitments of the service providers and consigns us even further to the fringes of technological advancement thereby limiting our ambitions to reach developed country status soonest and ultimately depriving our people of the benefits of such advances and degrading their quality of life.” In hindsight, the author said as part of the country’s development plan, various sectors of the economy were opened up to competition and investments to enhance productivity, generate more employment and essentially enhance the quality of life

of the people. “The telecommunications industry is one of the first sectors who opened in response to the need for connectivity within the archipelago, to the world and the phenomenal growth in the use of various Information and Communication Technology (ICT) platforms and instruments in promoting national development and citizens’ rights to information and free expression,” Dela Cruz said. He said as a result of such an initiative, the country adopted a long term information and communications technology development plan to accelerate the institutionalization of, among others, the development and regulatory framework conducive to the provision of fair, accessible and affordable ICT services; a sustained and measurable telecoms ‘roll out’ plan by the chosen service providers; and an incentives and

sanctions regime imposable on both service providers and users, corporate or individual. “In just a matter of time, the Philippines has become

the ‘texting’ capital of the world and Filipinos in and out of the country, became one of the most active internet users,” Dela Cruz said. The lawmaker said after

the service providers were vetted and directed to ‘wire’ the entire country to connect it to the world in as fast, proper and affordable See POLICY, page A11

This latter is a crucial element that assists to overcome obstacles. Experience keeps our minds aware of the way to solve some problems, for example, if someone re-confront a problem, it would be easy for him to solve it. Experi-

Foreign industries benefit more from local mining AT LEAST 97% of mineral production GOES TO FOREIGN INDUSTRIES

AS the Philippine Chamber of Mines concluded its international mining conference, the research group IBON reiterated that industries of other countries reaped more benefits from large-scale mining in the country than the local economy.

The three-day international mining conference, held in Solaire Resort Hotel and Casino in Manila, focused on the supposed role of the Philippine mining in the country’s development and in the global economy. According to IBON, 97 percent of mineral production in the country goes to foreign industries, proving the export-

oriented nature of Philippine mining. It supports other country’s industrialization and profit instead of being instrumental in the development of local industries, the group pointed out. IBON said the biggest mining companies in the Philippines came from the United States, Australia, Canada, Norway, Switzerland and China. While mining is unarguably vital to an economy, the group said its mining activity has unfortunately been vital to other economies instead of its own. To illustrate, as second-biggest automobile producer in the world, the US usually uses 40-60% mineral components; computer chips and other electronic products use

60% in minerals. For every dollar in the final output, mining contributes 45 cents to electrical equipment and 42 cents to machinery. All industries utilizing minerals contribute around U$2.5 trillion to US GDP. The group reiterated that the mining industry has remained a weak economic contributor after 20 years of mining liberalization under the 1995 Mining Act. Foreign investments in mining fell from US$1.45 billion in 2013 to US$693.1 million in 2014. The share of mining in the gross domestic product is only 0.7%, while its contribution to employment is only at 0.6%. The Government shares from mining

in taxes, royalties and fees amounted to Php22.83 billion in 2013 or a measly 1.33% of total tax revenues. IBON said that the country’s agriculture, industry and service sectors can benefit from mineral products in construction, power, electronics, machinery and transport. But for this to happen, the group said government must reverse its current proforeign mining policy. Minerals are non-renewable resources, but government’s further institutionalization of a liberalization thrust in the mining sector is tantamount to giving up the country’s chances for industrialization, the IBON said.

Expert: Policy reforms needed for climate change resiliency THE agriculture sector needs policy reforms in order to be resilient, a prominent climate change expert said. During the opening of the 28th National Rice Research and Development Conference at PhilRice on September 9, Dennis Dela Torre of the UP National College of Public Administration and Governance (NCPAG) and House of Representatives Special Committee on Climate Change, said that there are many challenges that hinder the agriculture sector to become a key development investment area. Policy reforms Dele Torre called for policy reforms that would direct the focus of government institutions, the private sector, and even foreign funders to agriculture. The Agriculture and

Fisheries Modernization Act of 1997 and the AgriAgra Act of 2009 which have provisions on finance mobilization also needs to be reviewed. He said that under the Agri-Agra law, the bank sector should devote 25% of loanable amounts to agriculture but studies reveal that banks are just willing to pay the fines. “We should look at our farmers as potential targets for investment in human capital,” Dela Torre argued. Meanwhile, he encouraged the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) that skills in agriculture must be one of the conditions in the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps), a conditional cash transfer scheme of the government to address poverty.

Release the pains of being a victim The Gospel of Jesus Christ (September21, 2015-Monday) Matthew 5:38-42-Ye have heard that it hath been said, an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have [thy] cloke also. And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain. Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away: In our gospel for today, Jesus taught us to give our maximum tolerance to those who hurt us, physically and emotionally because this is the paradigm of a great love. In

Romans 12:19-21- Vengeance [is] mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. Therefore “if thine enemy hunger, feed him;” if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good. In Matthew 5:44-but I say unto you, “Love your enemies,” “bless them that curse you,” “do good to them that hate you,” and “pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.” This teaching is “proven in the life of Jesus,” because He forgave those who crucified Him on the cross. In Luke 23:34-Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. The reason why you need to forgive your enemy is not because he

deserves it but you deserved to have peace in your life. The looser is you if you do not know how to forgive. You are cursing yourself if you do not know how to give your pardon because you are consuming the stored energy in your heart. Your energy drains once it is used constantly by having grudges and bitterness deep inside. Release the pains of being a victim in order that you can gain a victor mentality. Do not allow your enemy to destroy your life by making your day unpleasant because you are always refreshing the wounds you have from them. Forgive by forgetting them because it will lead you to a trouble free life style: Printing paid by: Neneth Ranoa - Bobong Balino- Edith Ranoa, PhD- Tony

Honda Launches the BeAT eSP Series at the Hibalag Festival in Dumaguete Honda Philippines, Incorporated (HPI) recently went down south of the country to launch its popular Honda BeAT FI eSp Series scooter. The leading motorcycle manufacturer in the country recently partenered with Silliman University in Dumaguete to serve as a copresenter of the annual Hibalag Booth Festival. This unique gathering featured various exhibits from different sectors such as farmers’ groups, business people and students in Dumaguete where they all showcased their produce, programs and policies in colourful booths. After a rousing motorcade participated by hundreds of Honda

riders, HPI gave the community and the students at Silliman University a real treat and non-stop excitement by participating in various activities. These include the Cheer Dance Competition where Honda awarded a bounty of prizes to the best cheer dance group.

Honda also handed out a special award—the Mr. Hibalag BeAT—during the Mr. and Ms. Hibalag competition to the candidate who expressed the best way on how one lets his BeAT out. And after three riproaring days of testride activities featuring Honda motorcycles,

product displays and the Ultimate BeAT dance showdown that filled Silliman University with

thrills and exhilaration, HPI finally unveiled the new Honda BeAT FI eSp Series scooter through

a delightful, music-filled concert that featured top alternative rock band, Callalily.

Aston Martin Opens Manila Dealership

Isuzu PH holds 8-percent market share, maintains 3rd spot in total industry sales Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC), the authorized distributor of Isuzu vehicles in the country has once again secured its position in the top three automotive brands, as it continue to surpass its record sales last year. Based on the report released by the Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines Inc. (CAMPI) and Truck Manufacturers Association (TMA), IPC sold 14,213 units for the first eight months of the year or a 7.9-percent of the total market share. This strong sale reflects on a 69-percent increase in sales from January to August compared to the previous year – making IPC to announce that it had

already exceeded its total number of units sold in 2014 which is recorded at 14,134 units. IPC president Hajime Koso was elated after learning the figures, thanking the Filipinos for the continuous support and confidence with the brand. “Despite the known ‘ghost month’ wherein sales are usually lean, Isuzu has still shown progress and has gained momentum towards the end of the year,” he said. “While the automotive industry in the country has experienced an 11-percent drop on the commercial vehicle segment last month, Isuzu remained strong and showed a positive outcome in terms of

sales,” Koso added. In August, IPC sold a total of 1,896 units, with the Isuzu mu-X being the flagship vehicle – selling a total of 880 units. Meanwhile, IPC’s Crosswind AUV and D-MAX pick-up shows steady growth selling 330 and 291 units respectively. Likewise, Isuzu also maintains its number one position in the Category III light-duty trucks last month with a total sale of 261 units, proving that it is still one of the country’s leading truck brand. Continuing its sales upsurge are Isuzu’s Category IV and V medium to heavy-duty trucks selling 134 units – which is mainly attributed to the strong fleet sales of the company.

Aston Martin’s ongoing expansion in the Asia Pacific region continues to gather pace with the British luxury sports car maker officially opening its dealership in Manila. The marque’s first dealership in the Philippines is backed by Marc Tagle and Wellington Soong, who have established DBPhils Motorsports Incorporated to handle the distribution and import process for Aston Martin Manila. Welcoming the announcement of the new dealership in Manila, Aston Martin Asia Pacific Regional Director Patrik Nilsson said: “The economic growth in Asia Pacific represents a huge potential for the brand. I am very pleased that we

have found the perfect partners in Manila who share our passion for Aston Martin. This expansion will surely strengthen our network.” The state-of-the-art showroom is located at

G/F W Fifth Avenue Bldg., 5th Ave., cor 32nd St., BGC, Taguig. Aston Martin Manila will also offer door-to-door pickup and delivery services for maintenance and repairs of customers’ vehicles. Owners can rest assured that their cars will be maintained by Aston Martin-certified technicians using the brand’s latest diagnostic equipment and tools. “We will welcome all Aston Martin owners at our new state of the art Aftersales facility, including those who imported their cars prior to our official presence. This will be a new start for existing Aston Martin customers” Mr Tagle said. “The luxury car segment is steadily growing in the Philippines and I am very happy that Aston Martin enthusiasts will now be able to enjoy ownership of these exclusive luxury sports cars” added Tagle.

properly. Recently, there have been a growing concern on saline intrusion and the projected sea level rise that affects coastal integrity. This serves as a threat to agricultural production areas near the coastlines. Hence, research insti-

tutions such as PhilRice must continuously develop saline-tolerant crop varieties to address this challenge. A mong t he s a l i ne tolerant varieties developed by PhilRice are NSIC Rc184 (6.3 t/ha maximum yield), NSIC Rc186 (4.2 t/ ha maximum yield), NSIC Rc188 (3.8 t/ha maximum yield), NSIC Rc190 (5.1 t/ha maximum yield), and NSIC Rc290 (5.7 t/ha maximum yield). Dela Torre also cited that if irrigation infrastructures failed to resist environmental threats, its quality would definitely be compromised. As a result, implementing agencies would then reinstitute innovations which would lead to a pain point in funding. The former chief on research and policy development of CCC said that projection and planning are important keys to withstand all environmental threats. “That’s what climate change is forcing us to do-to think better, to design, and plan better,” he reiterated.

PB will directly participate in the proposed PES and oversee the implementation of the mechanism. “The idea of subjecting Libungan Watershed to PES has met a positive response from respondents,” said Dr. Carmelita Martinez, PES Consultant of the Mindanao Development Authority (MinDA). During the recently concluded 1st Mindanao Policy Research Forum held at the Insular Waterfront Hotel here in this city, Dr. Martinez presented “Developing PES Mechanism with River Basin Organization (RBOs) in Mindanao” which highlighted the result of a pilot study on PES for the Libungan Watershed commissioned by MinDA. The forum was co-organized by MinDA and the Philippine Institute for Development Studies (PIDS). Dr. Martinez said “the pilot study revealed that 92 percent of respondents are willing to pay for the protection of Libungan Watershed,” while adding “those who cannot pay have expressed willingness to volunteer their time in any protection and conservation project.” In the implementation of PES, the farmers or landowners who have agreed to manage natural resources such as forests, watersheds, rivers, and streams are given incentive payments for rendering ecological services such as replanting of trees and ensuring the survival of the trees planted. Payments are made by the beneficiaries of the environmental services such water users, companies that benefit irrigation systems and industry stakeholders. The PES mechanism is also seen to enhance the protection of biodiversity that provide

environmental goods such as food, freshwater, fuel, fiber and other natural resources that are used as inputs to the production process that help move the economy. “PES is a market-based mechanism that will employ practical approaches and is not a program designed to reduce poverty,” said Martinez while explaining “that PES is an economic incentive to foster more efficient and sustainable use of ecosystem services provided by the natural environment.” She added that well-functioning ecosystems provide services that are crucial to human survival such as clean air, pest and disease control, carbon sequestration and storage, controlled greenhouse gases, productive soil, and power sources. The need to implement PES is bolstered by the findings of the study which revealed watershed degradation in various parts of Mindanao, Libungan included, caused by unregulated agricultural development and eco-tourism, illegal logging, population encroachment, and poverty of communities within the watershed area. The Libungan Watershed is at risk for water pollution, land use change, soil erosion, siltation, flooding, and the lowering of Libungan River’s water level. Unregulated human ac-

tivities are putting pressure on the watershed’s sustainability, specifically the quality of its water and landscape, as well as water availability. Guided by Mindanao’s roadmap to peace and development, Mindanao 2020, MinDA seeks to address ecologically-distressed areas in the island-region as it promotes a dynamic, inclusive, and green economy. It is a goal of Mindanao 2020 to implement PES in all major watersheds in Mindanao by 2030. MinDA hopes to replicate PES initiatives in other River Basins in Mindanao as inspired by the two PES success stories: the LGU of Naawan and the Miarayon-Lapok-LironganTinaytayan Tribal Association (MILALITTRA) in Bukidnon. The Mt. Kalatungan Range Natural Park benefits from PES through the successful collaboration of the Cagayan de Oro River Basin Management Council (CDORBMC), Xavier University-Ateneo de Cagayan, and the tribal group MILALITTRA. Study on PES is conducted through the Mindanao Knowledge Center (MKC) of MinDA that provides evidence-based policy researches for Mindanao’s sustainable development, in support to the MindaNOW! Nurturing Our Waters Program or MindaNOW.

One of MinDA’s flagship programs, MindaNOW integrates and harmonizes all watershed management and protection efforts in the islandregion, with the PES as one of its support programs. (PNA)

“As of September 15, the pests have destroyed a total of PHP21,649,899 palay and corn products,” Navarette told a news conference here. Navarette said the rodents attacked about 177 hectares rice fields in the towns of Banga, Polomolok, Sto. Nino and Norala, affecting 400 farmers. More than 870 farmers lost ready to harvest corn planted in 694 hectares. She said corn farmers lost PHP12.8 million of high value crops while rice farmers lost PHP8.8 million. “Rats normally go astray because of warm temperature in its habitat brought about by the dry spell,” Navarette said, adding more corn and palay products stand to be attacked by rodents. She called for a unified action against rodents in the rice and corn fields so that the province production will not be affected ahead of the feared El Nino phenomenon. Her office have been providing rodenticides to farmers to contain rat infestation. In March this year, the palay and corn farmers lost PHP88 million worth of high value crops due to dry spell. (PNA)
