Duterte admin hands over fisheries project to Davao City IP group

The Davao City government, under the leadership of Mayor Sebastian “Baste” Duterte, has officially turned over the “Aquapark Project” to the indigenous peoples’ (IP) group in Paquibato District.

The Ata-Paraiso Tularo Association (APaTA) in Sitio Paraiso, Barangay Tapak received the project to enhance fisheries productivity within the indigenous cultural communities and geographically isolated and disadvantaged areas in the city.

“It also aims to ensure food sufficiency and security by fostering the sustainable utilization of aquatic resources while respecting and preserving customary rights and practices,” the city government said.

The local government launched the project through the City Agriculturist’s Office and PEACE 911, in partnership with the Department of Agriculture-Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resouces XI.

The National Commission on Indigenous Peoples XI, the Department of Social Welfare and Development, the 56th Infantry “Tatag” Battalion, Barangay Tapak, and other partner agencies supported the initiative.
