PGMA accepts tripartite MOA between LWUA, DENR and PAWD

Manila (2 October) -- A tripartite memorandum of agreement between the Local Water Utilities Administration (LWUA), the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), and the Philippine Association of Water Districts (PAWD) on the close monitoring, management and development of watershed areas was presented to President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo from signatories of the three government agencies.

LWUA chairman Prospero Pichay, Jr. underscored the important role watersheds play in accomplishing the President's 10-point agenda of providing clean and potable water for every Filipino.

Pichay stressed that "We need to reforest and protect our watershed areas."

To achieve this, Pichay said LWUA was embarking on an ambitious reforestation program that aims to plant 30 million trees in a span of three years in all known watersheds in the country.

Under the MOA, the three government agencies agreed to recognize existing administrative, jurisdictional, and institutional arrangements and responsibilities over specific watersheds under prevailing laws, and contractual agreements.

The three agencies also agreed to execute site-specific MOAs for watershed development and management with the DENR field offices and LWUA districts and to constitute an oversight committee at the national level to monitor, evaluate, and review the progress and accomplishments of the watershed rehabilitation, protection and management activities at the program level and the site-specific project level.
