The PBBM admin chairs a forum of specialists to assess the PH reclamation policy.

In keeping with President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr.’s development priorities, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) convened a panel of experts to create policy suggestions for the eventual revision and improvement of the nation’s reclamations-related regulations.

According to the DENR, the recently unveiled Philippine Development Plan 2023–2028 focuses on economic transformation and increases community resilience to climate change risks. It also encourages a business environment to boost public–private partnerships (PPPs) across various sectors.

Even the President brought up the subject at his SONA in 2022, saying, “Companies that exploit our natural resources must follow the law… Protecting the environment also protects life.

The forum’s goals include encouraging communication between experts and stakeholders to learn more about reclamation, finding gaps and entry points to improve policy, and getting expert recommendations on how to improve reclamation policies at the national and local levels.

According to the DENR, the expected result is a set of policy recommendations on reclamation that will guide the review and improvement of the nation’s reclamation policies.

Executive Order No. 74 S. 2019, Philippine Reclamation Authority Administrative Order No. 2019-4 S. 2019, DENR Administrative Orders No. 2003-30 and 2018-14, and Department of the Interior and Local Government Memorandum Circular No. 2022-018 are among the reclamation laws and policies that the DENR said need to be reviewed and improved.

The global sources on reclamation demonstrate how reclamation may help to achieve Sustainable Development Goals, according to the DENR’s concept note.

According to extensive studies, simulations, and modeling, the reclamation project carried out in the Port of Rotterdam, the Netherlands, is regarded as a good practice, and it highlights the project’s innovation, economic advantages, compliance with safety standards, and improvements in the social and environmental sea conditions.

According to the concept note, different stakeholders have different ideas on what makes for a successful reclamation based on the experiences of Hong Kong and Indonesia, which, while promoting economic progress, also allegedly came with major environmental and social costs.
