Provincial, Sub-watersheds Management Councils organized for Lake Lanao River Basin

Planning and implementation of the different phases of the Integrated Natural Resources and Environmental Management Project (INREMP) will soon commence with the recent creation of the Watershed Management Councils for Lake Lanao River Basin.    

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Region 10 (DENR 10) and the Provincial Government of Lanao del Sur recently conducted a meeting with  stakeholders for the organization of the watershed management councils for Lake Lanao River Basin.  

The Watershed Management Council is composed of representatives from the provincial and municipal government units, government agencies/institutions, academe, civil society organizations and the private sector. 

INREMP aims to address unsustainable watershed management in the project site.  It focuses on indigenous people and resource-poor communities by reducing watershed degradation, forest denudation, and unsustainable farming practices by generating sufficient and tangible economic benefits. 

Lanao del Sur Provincial Governor Bedjoria Soraya A. Adiong called on participants to cooperate for the proper management and implementation of INREMP.

She further said that  failure to protect the lake will have a negative impact on the lives  not only of the  Maranaos but also to  all  Mindanaoans. 

Governor Adiong stressed the economic, recreational, aesthetic, cultural, educational, scientific and ecological benefits of Lake Lanao. 

For her part, DENR 10 Regional Director Ruth M. Tawantawan sought the help of the Maranaos to successfully implement INREMP. She said the Watershed Management Council has a “very crucial role because it is the governing body in the decision making process and project’s planning and implementation activities.” 

The Provincial and five sub-watershed management councils were installed into office by Mindanao Development Authority (MinDA) Secretary Datu Abul Khayr Dangcal Alonto  represented by Lourdile S. Enjambre. 

The Provincial Watershed Management Council is chaired by Governor Adiong and co-chaired by DENR 10 Regional Director Tawantawan with members coming from other government entities/organizations and civil society organizations  and the chairpersons of the five sub-watershed management councils. 

The Lake Lanao River Basin comprises 27 municipalities of Lanao del Sur and Marawi City.  

The meeting was an offshoot of the Memorandum of Agreement signed in September 21, 2016 between DENR 10 and the Provincial Government of Lanao del Sur for the implementation of INREMP.   It was also attended by Vice Governor  Mamintal Adiong, Jr., municipal mayors and representatives from various sectors of society.

INREMP is a seven year (2013-2020) project of DENR with funding support from Asian Development Bank, International Fund for Agricultural Development, Global Environmental  Facility and Climate Change Fund.  The project sites of INREMP are Chico River Basin in the Cordillera Administrative Region, Wahig-Inabanga River Basin in Bohol, Bukidnon River Basin in Northern Mindanao and Lake Lanao Watershed in the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao.
