Pasig river competes for asia 'riverprize award'
MetadataShow full item record
The Philippines’ Pasig River, the cradle of early Manila civilization, has been selected as a finalist in the first-ever Asia Riverprize by the prestigious International River Foundation which recognizes and rewards organizations which are making a difference through effective river basin restoration and management programs. It is a back-to-back nomination for the Pasig River Rehabilitation Commission which is coming off a successful campaign in the 2017 Thiess International Riverprize competition where the Pasig River was hailed as runner-up to the winner, San Antonio River of Texas, USA. PRRC executive director Jose Antonio “Ka Pepeton” E. Goitia said that “the consecutive entries of the Pasig River as a finalist in the 2017 and 2018 Thiess International and Asia Riverprize, respectively, is proof that the world recognizes the efforts of the Philippine government to restore the Pasig River and its environs since PRRC was established in 1999.”
