Soil testing is being done at the site for the Paligui Wetland Center Complex. The activity started on July 6, 2023, and is expected to be completed within 2-3 days. Soil testing is part of the study being done to complete the design and plans for the Paligui Wetland Center Complex which is scheduled for construction next month. Present at the site were the project partners, the Society for the Conservation of Philippine Wetland Inc. (SCPW), Barangay Paligui Local Government Unit led by Hon. Virgilio Manalili, and the Macatagal Irrigators Association (MIA).
The SCPW also engaged with the Local Government Unit of Candaba, Pampanga, to obtain the list of necessary permits for the wetland center structure. The Municipal Agricultural Officer, represented by Ms. Gloria Hipolito and Engr. Fernando Subala, Municipal Environment, and Natural Resources Officer, assisted the SCPW in coordinating with the Municipal Engineering Office and the Municipal Planning and Development Office to address concerns related to building permits and location certificates.
The construction of the said wetland center complex is part of the Frontrunner Initiatives of the “Living Lakes Biodiversity and Climate Project (LLBCP),” a 5-year project funded by Germany’s Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety, and Consumer Protection under the International Climate Initiative (IKI) with the Global Nature Fund, an NGO based in Germany as the Lead Organization. The LLBCP is being implemented across 10 countries with the SCPW as Implementing Partner in the Philippines. The main objective of the project is to ensure that the conservation and restoration of wetlands and the protection of related biodiversity are improved in the long term.
