DA to develop database for small–scale irrigation projects
by DA release

The Department of Agriculture’s Bureau of Soils and Water Management (BSWM) conducted a two-day seminar-workshop for the final stage of the compilation and development of database system on small-scale irrigation projects (SSIPs).

The project aims to develop a database system that will contain the inventory of SSIPs implemented by the DA’s BSWM and the regional field offices. This shall also serve as basis for the government to locate its investments.

BSWM OIC-Director Sonia M. Salguero said development of database system will bring transparency as the research and development studies and other related documents will be made available to the public through web access.

“With the Philippines gaining recognition on technological advances, we at the BSWM came up with this project that calls for another milestone for the progress of our small scale irrigation projects. I believe this will not only provide a long-term solution for using the current information and future activities relative to irrigation projects, but will also promote transparency in government transactions, which complies with the advocacy of our President,” Salguero said.

Undersecretary for Field Operations Ariel T. Cayanan said the Department has been embarking on the development of water resources for agriculture in the country since the 1970s. The implementation of SSIPs nationwide included small water impounding project, small diversion dam, shallow tube wells, small farm reservoir, and spring development.

“In the midst of technological breakthrough, other types like the pump irrigation system from open sources and alternative prime movers for pump irrigation systems like solar, wind, and ram pump were developed to provide supplemental irrigation where feasible in locations not reached by the National Irrigation Administration systems,” Cayanan added.

With funding support from the Bureau of Agricultural Research, the project underwent a series of stakeholders’ workshops in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao this year.
