Dr. Junel Soriano, director of DA-BAR, represented the bureau in the recently conducted Kick-off Meeting with Agence Francaise de Developpement (AFD) Technical Assistance Project Entitled “Cascading Community Rainwater Catchment System (CCRWC). The event included the discussion on the composition, duties, and responsibilities of the project’s DA Project Advisory and Technical Working Group.

CCRWC is a project that was conceived after receiving the directive from the Office of the President–to create harvesting ponds for the improvement of agricultural productivity and livelihoods and reduction of flood risk through rainwater catchment structures and systems. It will be piloted in 40 micro watersheds, and hopefully scaled-out to reach out to more communities.
