By Zoila Palma: The Department of the Environment (DOE) says that a consultative process has just begun and will be carried out over a 4-week period with various stakeholder groups that reside within the New River watershed.
Those include residents along the New River, representatives of local governments and institutions, factory operators, farmers, tourism and business operators, and civil society representatives.
The DOE says that the consultation will provide valuable insight into stakeholders’ views, concerns, and recommendations for consideration in developing a management plan to restore and conserve the New River watershed.
“A comprehensive and integrated watershed management plan is critical to guide the restoration, protection and promotion of the sustainable use and benefits of the resources of the New River watershed for all users and stakeholders, present and future,” DOE noted.
The DOE says that it is implementing the development of the New River Watershed Plan with the financial assistance of the Protected Areas Conservation Trust.
All stakeholders are urged to actively engage with the consulting team to be able to participate in the successful completion of this activity.
Members of the consultation team will possess a letter from the DOE identifying themselves as part of this activity.
