COMMUNAL IRRIGATION SYSTEM. One of the communal irrigation systems managed by indigenous farmers in one of the villages in Pinukpuk, Kalinga. It was developed with the assistance of the Center for Development Programs in the Cordillera (CDPC) through its partnership with Solidagro and the Province of East Flanders Belgium. CDPC is urging the government to support the Cordillera rice terraces farmers through the enhancement of their age-old traditional communal irrigation systems and protection of their rights over their water resources.
