Fast-track delineation of waters in the Philippines

We urge the Department of Agriculture to create an inter-agency task force that will be responsible for the fast-tracking of the delineation of municipal waters in the country.

We have data that proves delineation doubles the income of our fisherfolk and yet, only 57 municipal waters out of the total 920 have been delineated. At this rate, only 4 coastal municipalities are delineated every year. That is unacceptable. The DA needs to fast-track this process to help increase the income of our fisher folk the soonest possible time.
