local.seafdecaqd.extractIn 1999, the Philippine Government, under the administration of President Joseph Ejercito Estrada, created the Pasig River Rehabilitation Commission or PRRC Executive Order (EO) No. 54, as amended by EO No. 65. he PRRC, a convergence of various national agencies, local government units and non-government organizations, aims to rehabilitate the Pasig River into a condition that is able to support and sustain aquatic life and resources as well as conducive for transport, recreation, and tourism. Its river rehabilitation and management model includes housing and resettlement, riverbank, transportation, and tourism development, flood control, environmental management, and public information and advocacy programs. From 1999 to 2018, PRRC saved almost 20,000 informal settler families of ISFs (out of the 30,050 target) living along the banks of the river and its tributaries. Many of which were even residing over the estuaries and creeks, and tons of garbage that [had] piled underneath their makeshift houses. Beyond the assistance and new houses, which they can finally own and call home, said families were given new lives consistent with the philosophy of human dignity.en
