The University of San Carlos (USC) Phil-LiDAR Research Center hosted a workshop with Department of Environment and Natural Resources Regional Office VII (DENR – VII) last April 15, 2015 at Josef Baumgartner Learning Resource Center, University of San Carlos Talamban Campus. The workshop aims to explore possible areas of cooperation between the two agencies.
The DENR-7 representatives present in the meeting were headed by Mario V. Aragon, Chief of Conservation and Development Division. Both parties briefly presented current programs, projects, and researches. They also discussed and outlined a subsequent collaborative action to areas of cooperation. Both agreed that a cooperation agreement will be written between the parties to cooperate on data sharing, field validation, mentoring, and training.
