MetadataShow full item record
The Kapit-Bisig para sa Ilog Pasig (KBPIP) project has not only rehabilitated the storied river but also spurred changes well beyond its banks. “My seemingly ‘mission impossible’ tasks—such as traffic management and cleanup drives—became easier because of it,” Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) chair Francis Tolentino said in praise of the project as it marked its sixth anniversary on Wednesday. “The Aquino administration has been supportive as it is allocating P10 billion every year to clean the Pasig River,” said Lopez, who also chairs the Pasig River Rehabilitation Commission. “Cleaning the Pasig River really needs everyone’s help. We can actually do it if we work together.”
