NIA IV-A convenes Institutional Personnel

Wednesday, April 12, 2023 - 13:15

NIA IV-A kickstarts Tracking Institutional Development Program (IDP) Directions for 2023 led by Regional Manager Wilson Lopez and Engineering and Operations Division Manager Erwin Lucela on April 12 at New Training Center, Pila, Laguna.

According to NIA IV-A Supervising IDO Ms. Sofia Resurreccion, the 3-day seminar aims to consolidate plans and directions towards improved implementation of various institutional activities and programs of the Agency.

Acting Operations Chief Engr. Marinel Tobias highlights the vital contribution of Institutional Development in the implementation of on-going irrigation projects and operations of existing irrigation systems.

Engr. Erwin Lucela, in his message, encourages the participants to increase commitment in assisting farmers and Irrigators Associations (IAs) toward the realization of improved livelihood.

“Dapat bigyan natin ng focus yung active participation ng Institutional lalo na sa validation ng mga irrigation projects. Huwag tayong magsawa na pumunta sa field at makipagusap sa mga magsasaka”, he added.

RM Wilson Lopez, on the other hand, echoes one of the Agenda of NIA Top Management which is to strengthen interagency coordination to promote agricultural productivity and food security.

“Sa mga IDO natin maging pangunahing instrumento tayo para maipaliwanag ng maayos ang mga ginagawa nating aktibidad sa ating mga stakeholders. Mas ayusin pa natin yung pakikisama natin sa ating mga magsasaka para mas maintindihan pa natin ang pangangailangan nila”, he said.

Present during the seminar were IDO personnel from all NIA IV-A Irrigation Management Office (IMO).
