Ms Niet Arceo, Chief of Information Services Division, discusses the right and proper format of a Project Completion Report

PUERTO PRINCESA CITY, Palawan- An intensive and thorough critiquing of the MalMar Irrigation Project Completion Report was conducted last July 17-20 and was participated by the Special Project Management Team (SPMT), Technical Working Group from ATI-Central Office, ATI-RTC XII, NIA, MAFAR-BARMM, formerly DAF-ARMM, and different LGUs involved in the project.
“Despite the challenges of the Malitubog-Maridagao (MalMar) Irrigation Project (MMIP) for the past five years, we have been resilient in pursuing the project because we believe that this project is for the good of the residents of MalMar area”. This is the highlight of the message of Engr. Renato Dela Cruz, Chief of Partnership and Accreditation Division of ATI, during the said writeshop.
“One of the best practices, that perhaps this project has been instituted, is the strong collaboration between the ATI, National Irrigation Administration (NIA), local government units and other stakeholders. After the termination of this project, we shall continue to sustain the project. Whatever good practices that we have experienced for this project, it will be carried over to the next administration”, he further added.
MMIP was implemented to stabilize irrigated agriculture and increase agricultural productivity in the project beneficiary area by means of providing irrigation facilities and agricultural extension services.
The over-all objective of the project is to increase the productivity of rice in the area of MMIP through improvement of farming technology and financial management skills of Irrigator’s Association (IA’s).
Last April 11, project implementers and partners were convened to formulate a terminal report. Now, a Project Completion Report (PCR) was already finalized through the assistance of Information Services Division Chief Ms Niet Arceo.
The PCR of MalMar is expected to be completed this August said Mr. Mokles Buisan, Project Officer of MMIP.
