NIA Central Office – The National Irrigation Administration (NIA) Region III Manager and concurrent OIC Deputy Administrator for Engineering and Operations Sector Engr. Josephine B. Salazar received the P5-million worth of financial support from Maynilad Water Services, Inc. (Maynilad) for the Bulacan Irrigation Management Office (Bulacan IMO) on February 21, 2024 at NIA Region III Office, Tambubong, San Rafael, Bulacan.

Maynilad personally handed over the P5 million financial assistance to NIA Region III – Bulacan IMO for its El Niño mitigation program for Bulacan farmers. Bulacan IMO Division Manager Engr. Placida C. Cordero, Engineering and Operations Division Acting Manager Engr. Christian C. Manalo, and Water Control Coordination Unit Francisco J. Clara were also present along with Regional Manager Engr. Josephine B. Salazar.

The financial aid from Maynilad strengthens the NIA’s resilience to El Niño and highlights the value of Public-Private Partnerships in addressing climate-related concerns. This allows the NIA to carry out various initiatives targeted at mitigating El Niño’s impacts on water availability and agricultural productivity. Through this, Bulacan farmers will ultimately benefit from the assistance through the Agency’s plans and programs.

The NIA Top Management Officials, headed by Administrator Engr. Eduardo Eddie G. Guillen, values its collaborative relationship to its private sector partners in contributing to the aim of President Ferdinand R. Marcos, Jr.’s food security and modernized Philippine agriculture
