    Phl channels P585M to irrigation system

     
    THE Department of Budget and Management (DBM) in Manila announced Monday the release of P584.7 million to the Department of Agriculture-National Irrigation Administration (DA-NIA) for restoring and rehabilitating irrigation systems nationwide.
    The release was charged against the DA-NIA’s P3.49-billion budget for Irrigation Network Services this year. These services are likewise one of the agency’s Major Final Outputs under the 2014 Performance-Informed Budget.
    “By giving sufficient budget support to the agriculture department, the Aquino administration can give the NIA enough leeway to fulfill their targets for 2014, specifically for shaping up existing irrigation systems across the country,” Secretary of Budget and Management Florencio “Butch” Abad said.
    Abad added: “More important, however, is the positive impact of better irrigation systems on crop production nationwide, which will in turn boost our agriculture industry and aid the very farmers that drive it.”
    He also noted that the P584.7 million release comprises the entirety of DA-NIA’s 2014 budget for the Restoration/Rehabilitation of Existing Irrigation Systems, which is one of the subprojects covered by the irrigation administration’s Irrigation Network Services budget.
    Other subprojects listed under the irrigation administration’s Irrigation Network Services budget are the Extension/Expansion of Existing Irrigation Networks, the Repair/Operation and Maintenance of Pump Irrigation Systems, Irrigation Management Transfer Support Services, and Climate Change Adaptation Works.
