After obtaining financial grant from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), the Department of Public Works and Highways now prepares for the implementation of the Camiguin Island Flood Disaster-Mitigation Project.

In his Department Order No. 34, DPWH Secretary Hermogenes E. Ebdane Jr. had assigned the DPWH Project Management Office for Major Flood Control and Drainage Projects Cluster II (PMO-MFCDP II) to undertake the necessary actions to facilitate the external as well as internal financing arrangements.

" In coordination with other DPWH offices, the PMO-MFCDP II will also manage, supervise and monitor the implementation of the project and assure that it will be completed within the target completion date" Ebdane said.

Among the high impact projects that were also implemented by the DPWH PMO-MFCDP II are the Cotabato- Agusan River Basin Development Project in Mindanao and the Laoag River Basin Flood Control Project in Luzon.

Last July 3, 2009, the National Economic and Development Authority  (NEDA) and JICA had formally signed the P500 Million grant.
The agreement aims to obtain a sustainable economic growth and improve the standard of living in Camiguin Island by providing a reliable flood mitigation structures.

"Once completed, the project will provide an all weather access road, which is the main artery of the island's economic activities, especially the agriculture and tourism industries" Ebdane said.

The project involves the construction of Sabo Dams along Manbajao, Mahinog, Catarman, Sagay and Guinsiliban and it also includes the reconstruction of Hubangon Bridge.
