To sustain self-sufficiency under the government’s program, the Irrigation Management Office (IMO) started implementing irrigation projects.
In this regards, office of Division Manager Engr. Rizalo Conception from IMO sent an endorsement letter to the Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) Aklan for the adoption and approval of the System Management Committee (SMO) Resolution No. 01 Series of 2014 on the policies of Aklan League of the Federation of Irrigator's Association, Inc. (ALFIA).
According to the letter, “Irrigation Management Program aims to expand and enhance Aklan Provincial Government and community-level capacity to manage water resources to improve agricultural production and productivity.”
Under the task order, IMO work will include capacity-building and institutional strengthening services in the agricultural, irrigation and livestock management sectors, coupled with civil engineering support.
However, although it was already discussed, SP Aklan agreed that it will be initially referred to the Agriculture and Environment Committee.
