Office of the President

The Ecosystems Research and Development Bureau (ERDB)
is the principal research and development (R & D) unit of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR). Its R & D and extension activities are focused on the five major ecosystems of the Philippines which include forests, upland farms, grassland and degraded areas, coastal zone and freshwater, and urban areas.

The ERDB was created in June 1987 under Executive Order (EO) 192 that merged the function of the former Forest Research Institute (FORI) and the National Mangrove Committee. Its headquarters is located at the University of the Philippines Los Baños, College of Forestry and Natural Resources (UPLB-CFNR) campus in the municipality of Los Baños, province of Laguna, Philippines about 65 kms south of Manila.


The Ecosystems Research and Development Bureau participates in the celebration of the 2015 National Science and Technology Week spearheaded by the Department of Science and Technology. With the theme, “Philippines: A Science Nation Innovating for Global Competitiveness”, over 100 exhibitors composed of different government agencies, State Universities and Colleges (SUCs), private entities, were present during the event. The exhibit officially opened last July 24, 2015 at SMX Mall of Asia and will last until July 28, 2015.>>more

Thirty-eight (38) ERDB employees who were appointed and promoted took their oath of office on July 13, 2015 at the ERDB Auditorium. The appointees belong to salary grades 17 and below.

ERDB OIC Assistant Director Antonio M. Daño congratulated the new ERDB regular employees and assured them that the people that they have chosen are the ones that they know will contribute to the achievement of goals and objectives of the bureau.>>more
