How is the 10-year Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA)-funded rehabilitation project in Region 6’s Jalaur River Basin (JRB) doing? The Jalaur River Basin encompasses almost entirely the province of Iloilo, with portions lying within the provinces of Capiz and Antique. It has a total area of 176,500 hectares. Ten watersheds comprise the entire JRB. But only three towns in Iloilo province were covered by the rehabilitation project, according to Antonio Latoza Jr., forester and provincial focal person for Forest Land Management Project of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) in Region 6.
