WILL THE Panay River Basin Flood Control Project start next year? Capiz governor Victor Tanco Sr. certainly hopes so.

Tanco said that negotiating with the indigenous peoples (IPs) is a “difficult part” of the project implementation.

Seeking permission from the IPs is important because the project is in the uplands where the IPs live, Tanco told The Capiz Times Oct. 21. Resettlement areas for the tribes will also be built.

With the help of the 3rd Infantry Division and Tanco, the National Irrigation Administration (NIA) has been negotiating with the IPs.

The Panay River Basin Project can solve the fl ooding that has been affecting the province’s agriculture, he added.


As per the Philippine News Agency, the Department of Public Works and Highways and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) conducted their feasibility studies for the project in the 1980s.

NIA is now conducting the feasibility study which costs some P22 billion as of press time.
