Development need not be at the expense of the environment, as shown by the City of San Carlos in Negros Occidental.
In this week’s episode of Galing Pook, we take a look at how the city government of San Carlos engaged the citizens in protecting the city’s watershed and ensuring a sustainable water supply for future generations.
We also learn how the LGU addressed the need for land tenure for its informal settler families, thereby making them better stewards of the environment.
Also find out how the city tied the need for land for the departed loved ones of the citizens with the need to take care of the environment.
