THE CAGAYAN State University signed a memorandum of agreement with the Philippine National Police and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources for the reforestation and rehabilitation of mangroves in the region.

“This interdepartmental convergence initiative targets to invigorate the region’s forests and natural habitat and promote active participation among the community,” CSU said on Facebook.
The project seeks to reduce poverty, protect the environment, and enhance productivity and mitigate the effects of climate change through conservation efforts.
“In the bigger picture, it aims to enhance productivity, and mitigate climate change by sustainably using, developing, managing, protecting, and conserving the natural resources of Region II,” the university said.
The said agencies have also collaborated in other projects like the production of bamboo.
