Solon pushes DWRM creation

The “disorganized” and “unwieldy framework” governing the country’s water resources has prompted a partylist lawmaker to urge Congress to tackle the proposal of creating a Department of Water Resources Management.

AGRI Partylist Representative Wilbert Lee said that the framework is untenable amid increasing food insecurity.
