Nueva Vizcaya Governor Carlos Padilla on January 12 signed a Memorandum of Agreement with the National Irrigation Agency (NIA) for the implementation of the “Balikatan Sagip Patubig” Program (BSPP).
The BSPP is a Department of Agriculture (DA)-led irrigation program in which there will be cost-sharing among irrigators’ associations, local government units, and the national government.
At least eight communal irrigation systems (CIS) in Nueva Vizcaya are set to benefit from the BSPP.
These are the Limmansangan CIS, Paitan CIS, Lower Calitlitan CIS, Lower Sisi CIS, Tucanon CIS, Tucanon SWIS, Allay Nangcapalan CIS, and the Paoac Barobbob CIS.
The BSPP has a P100-million fund for the rehabilitation and development of communal irrigation systems.#
