To effectively organize timely, reliable and cost-effective data for environmental management, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Region X will implement Web-Based River Basin Integrated Information Management System (RBIIMS).  
A training-workshop was conducted on December 6 to 7, 2022 in Cagayan de Oro City to capacitate the selected DENR X Regional Office and field personnel composed of Information Systems Analysts, Conservation Section Chiefs and Geographic Information System (GIS) specialists in the implementation of the RBIIMS.  
DENR X Regional Executive Director Henry A. Adornado said that the RBIIMS is very important and must be implemented well specially to help address scarcity of water in the near future. He added that through the generated information, it will help the stakeholders and decision-makers to formulate development strategies to address problems in water management.  
The activity aimed to introduce the RBIIMS to the participants including its structure, functionalities and requirements and how to collate, standardize and encode the data into the system. They were also oriented on how to maintain the system including its quality control and security. The jurisdiction of the RBIIMS include Cagayan de Oro River Basin, Tagoloan River Basin, and Cluster 8 River Basin. 
The RBIIMS is a relational environmental database that contains sets of data for environmental management. The system is one of the decision-making tools created by Partnerships in Environmental Management for the Seas of East Asia for coastal, marine and river basin management. It will provide information to managers, decision-makers, planners and other stakeholders in a unified and acceptable format. 
Through the implementation of the RBIIMS, it will ensure the complementation of strategies and facilitate collaborative support among stakeholders in data gathering and population to maintain the credibility of the system. #TayoAngKalikasan RSCIG # 12-367-2022
