MetadataShow full item record
An expert sees the need for a legislation mandating local government units (LGUs) to create councils that would manage rivers. "Rivers are sources of water for various uses, provide food, serve as transportation routes and are sites for tourism and research so these waterways must be sustainably managed," River Basin Control Office (RBCO) Exec. Dir. Antonio Daño said Thursday (Dec. 6) on the sidelines of a planning workshop in Quezon City. Creating councils focused on managing rivers would help better address pollution, congestion and other problems plaguing these waterways, he noted.
