Kalinga stakeholders agree on need to consult on dev’t projs

TABUK CITY, Kalinga – The grassroots must be consulted for every project planned to be implemented in their area to ensure their involvement in the development process and to guarantee success of the project.

“They have to be our active partners so the need to consult them,” Pinukpuk Municipal Administrator Fermin Anniban said during the awarding of initial sub-projects under the Integrated Natural Resources and Environmental Management Project (INREMP) to people’s organizations-beneficiaries.

C/Insp. Jerry Costina, member of Water Management Council (WMC) backed the statement, saying that the full support and involvement of the people ensures a return on investment after the termination of the project.

Remedios Ramirez, INREMP focal person, earlier reported that 600 hectares are targeted to be planted this year under INREMP by partner people’s organizations.

Imelda Casiwan, Pinukpuk OIC Community Environment and Natural Resources officer, said that eight people’s organizations in the Cal-owan area were endorsed by the WMC and were awarded contracts for eight sub-projects while four in Saltan are being evaluated to handle four sub-projects.

She assured that villagers will be consulted and that people’s organizations’ credentials will be evaluated before their endorsement.

The INREMP is one of the major projects of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources that aims to address unsustainable watershed management in four priority upper river basins in the country, including the Chico River basin.
