By Benilda A. Recebido

SORSOGON CITY, Sorsogon, July 11 (PIA) — The provincial government of Sorsogon is now getting ready for the implementation of the Payapa at Masaganang Pamayanan (Pamana) projects in the province.

Sorsogon Governor Raul R. Lee said the Provincial Planning and Development Office (PPDO) has already prepared the list of Pamana priority projects and its needed budget for this year.

The second phase of the Pamana projects this year will again be on track as follows: For Barcelona town, water system and river control project; Casiguran, concreting pavement of Calayugan-Burgos Farm to Market Road; Gubat, concreting pavement of Union-Sangat Farm to Market Road; Juban, concreting pavement of Caruhayon-Tinago Farm to Market Road and of Lower-Upper Calmayon; Magallanes, Eco-tourism project (Phase II) which includes Parola Beach, Bucalbucalan Spring Resort and Sta. Lourdes Grotto, establishment of evacuation center and post-harvest facility with mechanical flatbed dryer; while in Pto. Diaz is concreting pavement of Gogon-San Rafael Farm to Market Road.

The projects were allocated with P5 million each, amounting to P40 million, including the establishment of a provincial agricultural facility, the cold storage and cold chain facility in Brgy. Abuyog, Sorsogon City.

Assistant Secretary Romulo B. Halabaso represented the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process (OPAPP) and formally turned over 10 out of 12 completed 2011 completed Pamana Projects in Sorsogon to the respective local chief executives and its direct beneficiaries on July 4.

Data from the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) in 2009 said that Sorsogon was identified as one of the priority provinces because of the heavy presence and activities of the New People’s Army (NPA) with 114 conflict affected barangays (CAB) in seven municipalities.

Pamana started in Sorsogon by conducting a road-mapping on February 4, 2011 in preparation for the implementation of Pamana projects for 2011.

On February 9 of the same year, Lee issued an executive order creating the Pamana Technical Working Group (PTWG) that will lead the over-all supervision, management and implementation of the Pamana program in the province.

Lee initiated anew the re-organization of the PTWG this year in preparation for the implementation of the second phase of Pamana projects in Sorsogon. The PTWG is composed of the Office of the Governor, Department of Public Works and Highways Districts 1 and 2, Philippine Army, the Philippine National Police, Department of Education, Department of Social Welfare and Development, Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR)-Provincial ENR Office and the Department of Interior and Local Government acting as the secretariat.

Sorsogon, along with Camarines Norte and Masbate are among the three provinces in Bicol region identified by OPAPP as beneficiaries of the peace initiatives of Pamana program. (MAL/BAR-PIA5 Sorsogon)
