Kalinga prepares P32-M El Nino mitigation plan

by L. Lopez

Tabuk, Kalinga (10 September) -- The province has drafted a El Nino mitigation plan for submission to the Department of Agriculture Cordillera (DA-CAR).

The plan listed down various agricultural infrastructure facilities for funding amounting to P32 million broken down as small water impounding projects (SWIP)-P15M; diversion dams - P14M; small farm reservoirs - P4.5M; wind resource irrigation program - P1M and gravity technology resource base irrigation project - P1.5M. Provincial Agriculturist Jose said funds for the project would come from DA regular budget next year.

Government starts to identify projects that would mitigate the ill-effects of the long dry-spell brought by the El Nino phenomenon which is expected to hit the country in summer next year.

The long dry-spell previously experienced by farmers in various parts of the country has tremendously affected the food requirement of the country, forcing importation from other countries.

In the region, Kalinga supplies most of the rice requirement of other provinces from its rice industry. Because of this, DA is pouring-in several rice-production support facilities to the province.

Jose said the mitigation plan would help reduce the damage brought by the El Nino phenomenon to farmers in the province. (PIA-Kalinga) [top]
