Kalinga to embark on bamboo plantation

Tabuk City, Kalinga (6 March) -- Alongside with its reforestation efforts to control climate change, the Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office (PENRO) here will embark on bamboo plantation in cooperation with local government units.

Senior Forester Noel Barrientos said the plantation of bamboo along banks of water bodies particularly the Chico River and its tributaries will help control erosion and flooding during heavy downpour.

"And the greater benefit this project will offer is the promotion of the bamboo industry which is found to be a lucrative business," he said.

He said the project will be jointly undertaken with the LGUs following the Upland Development Program approach of partnering with local residents to do the planting.

"The amount of P5 million was proposed to fund the project", Barrientos said adding that it will be implemented this year.

OIC Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Officer Engr. Ricardo Dang-iw said the proposal was already approved and his office is waiting for the conduct of the evaluation on river banks to be handled by the Environment Research and Development experts of DENR.

"The "batog mi, mulaan mi" scheme might be adopted to ensure that local residents living near rivers are directly employed and benefitted from the project", Barrientos said. The maintenance of these plantations is ensured if these people are directly involved, he explained. (PIA) [top]
