Four (4) government vehicles were consecrated and turned over today, October 5, 2020, by the DENR-CAR Regional Office to its field offices as part of the continuing operationalization of the Integrated Natural Resources and Environmental Management Project (INREMP) in the region for the sustainable watershed management of the Chico Upper River Basin.

PENRO Kalinga received two (2) brand new units of Nissan Urvan NV350 while PENROs Apayao and Mountain Province received a unit each of the said vehicles which are expected to bring relief to the mobilization efforts of the DENR-CAR in the maintenance and monitoring of its area which covers 4,545.52 square kilometers.
The funding of these vehicles is derived from the loan obtained by the Philippine Government from the Asian Development Bank (ADB).
Regional Executive Director Ralph C. Pablo considered these automobiles as “blessings” and urged its designated drivers to maintain the good condition of the said vehicles.
