CDO launches a P8.5-B program to manage flood risk.
On Friday, local officials finally launched the long-awaited PHP8.5 billion Flood Risk Management Project (FRIMP).
The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) funded the FRIMP, which construction began in 2014.
During the opening ceremony, Mayor Rolando Uy referred to the project as a crucial infrastructure that would shield the populace from flooding.
In addition to giving the city a new route, he added, “This project creates a boulevard that showcases the beauty and charm of the Cagayan River.”
Uy also encouraged Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Manuel Bonoan to quicken the completion of the last FRIMPs now being built in the river’s upper reaches.
The DPWH is in charge of carrying out FRIMP in the city as the implementing agency.
The city was included in the DPWH’s River Basin Master Plan after the incident involving Tropical Storm “Sendong” in 2011. The result is the FRIMP.
