Moving Cagayan folk away from river eyed
MetadataShow full item record
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) is looking at the possible relocation of residents living along the banks of Cagayan River, after Typhoon “Ulysses” (international name: Vamco) caused widespread flooding in Cagayan Valley region. During his visit to Tuguegarao City this week, Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu said a working group of governors of the provinces of Cagayan, Isabela, Quirino, Nueva Vizcaya and those in the Cordillera would be formed to oversee engineering interventions for the country’s longest river. Cimatu directed Gwendolyn Bambalan, the DENR executive director, and Mario Ancheta, Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) director, both in Cagayan Valley, to work with the provincial governments for potential relocation of communities along the riverbanks.
