NIA-CAR proposes super region irrigation projects

LA TRINIDAD, Benguet (2 October) -- The National Irrigation Administration Cordillera Region (NIA-CAR) proposed a P3.84 million worth of irrigation projects for inclusion in the North Luzon Super Region.

Irrigation projects are vital components of the agricultural development plans of the North Luzon Agribusiness Quadrangle (NLAQ) Super Region. NLAQ is part of the President's roadmap to realize the region's full potentials that would spur national development.

NIA-CAR headed by Regional Irrigation Manager Abraham Akilit submitted the proposed priority list of new and for rehabilitation irrigation projects endorsed by the Regional Development Council - CAR through an Executive Committee Resolution Numbered CAR-52 series of 2006 to NLAQ champion Presidential Management Staff Secretary Arthur Yap during his recent visit to the Cordillera.

As stated in the RDC resolution, these priority projects were coordinated with the various local government units and drawn from CAR Regional Development Investment Program (RDIP) subject to previous RDC and local endorsements.

The construction of proposed five new irrigation projects entails a budget cost of P1.965 million that would generate a total of 9.134 hectares and to benefit 6,396 farmer-beneficiaries.

The rehabilitation of 829 existing National and Communal Irrigation Systems has a total cost of P1.87 million to restore 28,040 hectares with an actual service area of 57,917 hectares. It would benefit a total of 44,754 farmer-beneficiaries.

The proposed priority projects according to Akilit have a watershed development aspect unlike in their previous projects. The agency has come to realize the inclusion of watershed development in sustaining water resources for their irrigation system projects in the region and Cordillera being the watershed cradle of the north.
