Provincial Integrated Water Security program ang ginlunsar sang pobinsya.

Ini sa tinutuyo nga mapasanyog ang access sa water supply, mas mapaayo ang water resource management kasubong man mas mapabakod pa gid ang water sector governance.

Ginsiling ni Negros Occidental Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson na nag pamuno sa programa kahapon, nga 25 porsiento sang mga negrense ang wala sang access sa water supply.

Sa Pilipinas halos lima ka million ka mga Pinoy ang naga salig sa unsafe water resources.

Ang ginlunsar nga programa, ang kabahin sang USAID Safe Water program.

Ginpasalamatan sang gobernador ang USAID sa pagpili sang probinsya nga isa sa mga nagbaton sang ila nga expertise kag suporta.

Damlag pa ang talatapan ni Third District Representative Francisco Benitez kaupod kay Governor Lacson kag Provincial Administrator Rayfrando Diaz ang nagsakdag sang mga talakayan nga nag resulta sa Negros Water Summit.

Diri napatpat ang nagasaka nga demand sa tubig kag ang mga naga apekto sa supply nga naga resulta sa pagninit sini kasubong sang population growth, urbanization kag climate change.

“2.2 billion people in the world globally do not have access to safe water at home. In the Philippines, nearly 5 million rely on unsafe water sources, in the province of the 3 million Negrenses, 25 percent have no access to water supply and 80 percent have no access to sanitation services. With these figures it is a pity to know that while the entire world has made leaps in terms of modernization and technology a very basi need such as water remains a privelege for some,” suno kay Lacson.

“We recently celebrated the World Environment Day, and the corresponding call for radical action for planetary health that should not be lost on us as we launch the provincial integrated water security program today, the challenge really is for us to continue instituting the necessary forms and investment in providing and improving water governance in Negros Occidental,” suno kay Benitez.
