Natural Resources of Bataan, Philippines
- Protect the environment
It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.
Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!
Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.
The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.
To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.
Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More
We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.
This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.
Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power. We have too many black outs.

Balanga being transformed into high tech-city

CITY OF BALANGA, Bataan- This relatively undeveloped city is being transformed into the vision of being a world-class university town by 2020. In this light, the city government of Balanga has lined up various technological projects in remodeling the Bataan capital into a “high tech-city.”
Balanga City Mayor Jose Enrique Garcia III announced the construction of a city library and a city information technology lab parallel to improving the education sector with the university town project.
The said project allots 18.51 hectares or 23 percent of the central district’s 80.42 hectares for the establishment of schools, churches, city hall, and other public buildings.
Garcia said that studies were made designing Balanga after internationally renowned technological institutions like the Silicon Valley in California that has gained prominence worldwide with its investments on computer innovations.
“Silicon Valley (adopted) the fine mixture of ingenuity, innovation, and resourcefulness, (thus) people there were able to transform this once barren, secluded area into a high-tech investment and economic hub,” he said.
In Balanga, free wireless frequency internet connections are available in barangay halls, public elementary schools, and business establishments.
The city government is also establishing information technology corners and e-Centers in Balanga’s 25 barangays under the Barangay Online program, which will serve as venue for technical assistance and online library.
According to Roneth Santos of the city government, about 42 units of closed-circuit television cameras were installed around the city monitored by the Philippine National Police and the Public Safety Office for public security.
Santos said that a subsidized computer loan program for city public school teachers was also launched which gave a P5,000 subsidy to teachers who want to own a laptop computer and the remaining balance was loaned to them with zero interest.
Garcia also pioneered the use of a 3 x 4-meter giant LED TV monitor in center of the Plaza Mayor De Balanga used in celebrations.
“We therefore urge each and every Balangueño to continue believing and commit themselves as our partners in pursuit of vision to make Balanga one of the finest cities in the world,” added Garcia.
