Green technology isusulong sa Mindanao

NANAWAGAN ang Mindanao Development Authority (MinDA) sa mga negosyante sa rehiyon na makibahagi sa isinusulong nilang “green technology” o pangangalaga sa kalikasan.

Ang panawagan ay inilabas ni MinDA chairperson Luwalhati Antonino kasabay ng ginanap na 21st Mindanao Business Conference sa Butuan City.

“We urge business leaders to give back for the environment,” ani chairperson Antonino. “We ask the active participation of the business sector in setting industry standards for green technology.”

Binanggit ni Antonino na maaaring pagtuunan ng business sector sa kanilang corporate social responsibility o CSR programs ang pangangalaga sa watersheds at river basins.

“Mindanao is host to eight major river basins which we rely on for commercial and other purposes,” wika pa Sec. Antonino.

Aniya, nanganganib na tuluyang maglaho ang pakinabang dito kapag nasira ang kabundukan dahil sa iligal na pagtotroso at pagmimina.

“Damage brought on Mindanao’s rich natural environment range from moderate to severe, some of which are irreparable,” ayon pa kay Antonino. “Mindanao suffers from rotating brownouts owing to the critical condition of watersheds in Lanao del Norte and Bukidnon where the Agus and Pulangi hydro power plants are located.”

Sinabi pa ni Antonino na base sa datos ng DENR, 23 porsyento na lamang ang kagubatan sa Mindanao.
