RDC OKs construction of Small Reservoir Irrigation Project in Nueva Ecija
CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga-Regional Development Council (RDC) has passed a resolution favorably endorsing the construction of the proposed P498 million Balbalungao Small Reservoir Irrigation Project (BSRIP) in San Isidro village, Lupao, Nueva Ecija.
“BSRIP aims to boost agricultural production through the provision of irrigation and drainage infrastructures in the area which would lead to increase in farmers’ income,” RDC Vice Chair and National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) Regional Director Severino Santos said.
The project is eyed for completion in three years.
RDC 3 is the highest policy-making body in Central Luzon and serves as the counterpart of the NEDA Board at the subnational level.
It is the primary institution that coordinates and sets the direction of all economic and social development efforts in the region and serves as a forum where local efforts can be related and integrated with national development activities.
Council members include all governors, city mayors, municipal mayors of capital towns, presidents of municipal mayors’ league, regional directors of national government agencies and representatives from the private sector. (Carlo Lorenzo J. Datu)
