MENRE-BARMM lauds EU, World Vision’s charge to protect env’t

MARAWI CITY, Lanao del Sur (PIA)--The Ministry of Environment, Natural Resources and Energy (MENRE) of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) has acclaimed the new undertaking of the European Union (EU) and World Vision that would take the forefront in safeguarding the environment in the region.

With the project Integrated Solid Waste Management-Circular Economy Adaptation for Alternative Plastic Waste Solutions, international non-government organizations want to promote the circular economy and improve how plastic waste is managed.

Akmad Brahim, the Minister of MENRE-BARMM, said this shows how strongly the EU and World Vision want to solve the urgent problems of solid waste management and work for a greener, safer, and more sustainable environment for the people in the region and for future generations.

"We commend the EU and World Vision for their efforts in Cotabato City, as well as Marawi. As we embark on this new journey, I send my warmest support and appreciation to the World Vision, EU, and the rest of the organizations who are leading the goal of creating a pillar and more resilient Bangsamoro and Philippines," he said.

Brahim earlier shared that World Vision had already implemented previous environmental programs in the region, where it donated waste management equipment such as solid waste bicycles and a charcoal briquette machine and shredder.

Also, the ministry has implemented the Pera sa Basura program to encourage proper waste disposal, and World Vision's program is seen as a big help because it helps all the relevant partners communicate and work together.

With all of these steps, the MENRE-BARMM hopes to help communities become more self-reliant, reduce their carbon footprints, and fight the effects of climate change over time.

Brahim is sure that this project will be a resounding success if everyone involved stays committed and works together.

He emphasized that they can make a difference by working together to create a world-class waste management system in which wastes are properly managed, recycled, and thrown away so that they have the least amount of negative effects on the environment.

"By working together, the MENRE and World Vision can strive towards a more environmentally friendly Philippines," said Brahim. (CRG/PIA-10/Lanao del Sur)
