Republic Cement-WWF begin phase 2 of watershed sustainability program

Recognizing that water is fast becoming a scarce resource, Republic Cement takes a step further to protect and enhance water supply by partnering with World Wildlife Fund –¬†Philippines in the second phase of their “Catchments and Communities Project”, which aims to develop a Watershed Sustainability Plan for Morong in Rizal province.

The project, which began in 2015 with a study on the impact of urban and commercial development on the water balance of Morong, Rizal, will use the results of the first phase to engage local government units and other stakeholders to commit to a strategic framework, and help them develop workable action plans that will ensure the sustainability of the Morong watershed. The project also calls for the formation of a Water Quality Management Area to oversee the management and implementation of the watershed framework.

This is the latest project of the more than a decade-long partnership between WWF- Philippines and Republic Cement that has resulted in several sustainability initiatives over the years.
