PIA Press Release

RDCC remains focused on PGMA's instructions to mitigate floods in Region 10

by Rutchie Cabahug-Aguhob

Cagayan de Oro City (2 February) -- The Regional Disaster Coordinating Council (RDCC) of Region 10 will stay focused in complying with the instructions of President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo in managing the effects of the floods and storm surges that recently hit the region.

Thus stressed RDCC Executive Officer and Office of Civil Defense (OCD), Region 10 Director Carmelito A. Lupo during the radio program "Ang Rehiyon Karon" (The Region Today) aired live Friday (January 30) at DXIM Radyo ng Bayan, Cagayan de Oro City.

"Ang Rehiyon Karon" is a program of the Regional Development Council (RDC) - Region 10's Communication Advocacy Program Task Force (CAP TF) that talks about Northern Mindanao's development and takes a regular one-hour airing from 3:00pm -4:00pm every last Friday of the month in the same station.

Lupo said RDCC-10 is now complying with the President's directive along reforestation, rehabilitation and relocation given when she convened both the RDCCs of regions 10 and 13 in Camiguin, last January 7.

Particularly, he said, an initial P3 million of the total P19.979 million funding for the reforestation in the Northern Mindanao have been given to the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Region 10.

This amount will be used for the implementation of the upland development program, such as the "Bantay Gubat" (Forest Watch) to rehabilitate the flood-prone areas in the watersheds and riverbanks.

It also includes the emergency employment, livelihood and technical training of the people in the communities which are involved in the project, Lupo added. (PIA-10) [top]
