DENR-PENRO Marinduque and the Local Government of Torrijos Approved the Memorandum of Partnership Agreement (MOPA) for Rapid Land Tenure Appraisal (RLTA) Program
On December 16, 2020, the DENR-PENRO Marinduque represented by the OIC-PENR Officer Imelda M. Diaz and the Local Government of Torrijos, represented by Mayor Lorna Q. Velasco signed the Memorandum of Partnership Agreement (MOPA) for Rapid Land Tenure Appraisal (RLTA) program, witnessed by Chief, TSD Cynthia U. Lozano and Vice-Mayor Ricardo R. De Galicia.
Rapid Land Tenure Appraisal (RLTA) is a strategy identified by the DENR in support to accelerated land titling all over the Philippines and shall pursue Agenda no. 6 of the PRRD administration’s 10-point Agenda “Ensure security of land tenure to encourage investments and address bottlenecks on land management”. Likewise, it will also prevent double titling and land ownership conflicts as it provides a clear picture on the land tenure situation on the ground. Aside from providing security of land tenure to deserving beneficiaries, land titling will improve land market and ultimately increase the local government units’ revenue.
This RLTA program will be conducted by the DENR-PENRO Marinduque in the Municipality of Torrijos this coming year, 2021.
Active collaboration and partnership between DENR-PENRO Marinduque and LGU-Torrijos will ensure the effective implementation of the said program. ###

Help Clean Boac River: World Water Day 2019
WATER FOR ALL. Sustainable Development Goal 6 is crystal clear: water for all by 2030. By definition, this means leaving no one behind. But today, billions of people are still living without safe water – their households, schools, workplaces, farms and factories struggling to survive and thrive.
This World Water Day, 22nd March, is about tackling the water crisis by addressing the reasons why so many people are being left behind.
World Water Day reminds people about the significance of fresh water and to promote sustainability for fresh water resources' management. It’s a day to celebrate water. It’s a day to prepare for how we manage water in the future.
Leaving no one behind
Each year, World Water Day highlights a specific aspect of freshwater. For 2019 this is: 'Leaving no one behind'. This is an adaptation of the central promise of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development: as sustainable development progresses, everyone must benefit.
Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG 6) aims to ensure availability and sustainable management of water for all by 2030. By definition, this means leaving no one behind.
Today, billions of people are still living without safe water – their households, schools, workplaces, farms and factories struggling to survive and thrive.
Water for all
When the 2030 Agenda was adopted in 2015 by the UN, all countries and stakeholders set out an ambitious agenda envisaging a world free of poverty, hunger and disease. A world where all life can thrive and where no one is left behind.
At a time of immense global challenges – poverty, inequalities, natural disasters, humanitarian crises and forced displacement – the 2019 edition of World Water Day looks at why people have been left behind and how access to water and sanitation and sustainable water management can be drivers of change.
Water for all implies that also elderly, disabled, marginalized and poor people get access to clean drinking water and proper sanitation, as is meant with universal access in Sustainable Development Goals #6.1 and 6.2.
