As one of the stakeholders of the Lanao Watershed in Mindanao, the National Power Corporation took part in the opening ceremony of the three-day Lanao Watershed Management Conference at PHILJA Training Center in Tagaytay City on September 9, 2014. It was attended by Mayors, Vice-Mayors and local officials of the 19 municipalities of Lanao del Sur.
In her speech, NPC President Ma. Gladys Cruz- Sta. Rita urged the participants to be one with NPC in spreading awareness of the importance of preserving the watershed and Lake Lanao, the second biggest body of freshwater in the country and the source of water of six Agus Hydro Electric plants.
"As old as time itself, Lake Lanao just cannot perish. We must make sure it does not. For the sake of the people of the entire Mindanao islands, who continue to depend on it to power its people and economy. For the great legacy and history that lives on in its waters, and that reminds us that, if Man is to blame for Lake Lanao’s deterioration, it is also Man who has the power to restore and heal it,” said President Gladys also citing NPC and DENR’s Watershed Vegetative Rehabilitation Project for the 180,415 hectares of the Lake Lanao-Agus River Watershed.
The conference was funded by the United Nation Democracy Fund thru Tanggol Kalikasan Inc, a non-stock, non-governmental institution lawyering for environmental concerns. NPC along with other agencies were also co-sponsors of the event.
