Sulop received P1.7M grassroots participatory budgeting project from DAR

piaSULOP, Davao del Sur, Aug. 27 (PIA) – The municipality of Sulop in Davao del Sur province has recently been a recipient of a P1.7 million worth of drainage canal rehabilitation project provided by the Department of Agrarian Reform.

The project is part of the P2.9 million funding allocation under the Grassroots Participatory Budgeting (GPB) of DAR, bared Davao del Sur Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer Atty. Juancho P. Calud.

Calud said the first project aims to rehabilitate the 1,092 meters of drainage linings through grouted riprapping in Barangay Poblacion which is a catch basin of rainwater cascading from Mckinley ranges being a low-lying area. 

Flooding has been a natural occurrence during rainy season in said barangay whose residents have been employing adaptation measures every time flooding happens.  

Mayor Jimmy Sagarino expressed his heartfelt gratitude for this long awaited project “which is a lift in our dire need of minimizing flooding in Barangay Poblacion.”  

The mayor, who personally received the check, hoped to secure additional funding for this project, saying “but right now, having something to start with is already a big thing.”

Standing to benefit the project are the 7,900 residents of Barangay Poblacion, 104 of whom are agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs). 

“Once the drainage system is improved, flooding especially along ARB production areas will be minimized, subsequently, it will also minimize damage on barangay roads, houses and other infrastructures,” Sagarino stated.

The mayor added, “Most of all, it reduces fear in the minds of the people every time dark clouds beacon.”

The GPB, previously called Bottoms-Up Planning and Budgeting (BUB), is adopted as a strategy in pursuing the Millennium Development (MDG) of reducing poverty.

DAR is among the 13 national government agencies that implement the GPB. (PIO-DAR Davao del Sur/Yadz Geyrozaga w/reports from Mayet Sasuman)
