BCDA urged to abide by 19 CJH conditions

DISASTER-RESILIENT COMMUNITIES -- U.S. Ambassador Philip Goldberg, WFP Rep. and Country Director Preveen Agrawal, and guests were given traditional welcome rites when they inaugurated the Emergency Operations Center constructed in Tublay, Benguet with funding from USAID in line with the U.S. government’s bid to make the province resilient to disasters and adapt to the effects of climate change. Escorting them are Tublay officials led by Mayor Reuben Paoad and Vice Mayor Armando Lauro.

USAID unveils grants to make Benguet ready for calamities
An estimated P260 million in royalty fees intended for communities affected by the operations of the Philex Mines Corporation in Tuba, Benguet remain untouched in the banks with intended beneficiaries not paid since 2009, Board Member Blas Dalus told the provincial board last week.

TUBLAY, Benguet – The United States government is showing sincere efforts in making this province resilient to disasters and other calamities through fund support since Typhoon Pepeng that left dozens of people dead in 2009.

 

After his “why only me?” response to the complaint filed by the Baguio Water District, Baguio Rep. Nicasio Aliping Jr. this time is asking “why only now?” in his counter-affidavit on allegations that he ordered the cutting and uprooting of over 700 trees to give way to a road project at his claimed property at Kabuyao, Mt. Sto. Tomas.

 
Benguet is taking the lead in protecting the country’s vegetable industry by getting the commitment of two government agencies not to allow entry of illegal crops from other Asian countries.
