At the time of the last deletion, six other agreements covered 735 hectares of forest. SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga, Philippines – Over the past two years, the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) has denounced 43 Industrial Forest Management Agreements (SIFMAs) on 3,880 hectares in central Luzon after their tenants were unable to develop the areas. The Pveretens also failed to provide annual performance reports as defined in their SIFMAs, he added. This year alone, DENR inspected a total of 157 SIFMA holders in central Luzon for an area of at least 2,000 hectares. Of these, 117 with more than 1,300 hectares were recommended for cancellation, said the director general of THE Maximo Dichoso REGION of DENR. „Not only did the owners of the SIFMA not develop and protect their territories, but they did not pay their annual rents, resulting in loss of government revenue,“ Dichoso said.
