The Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) RXI conducted an information, education and communication activity with the Sangguniang Panlalawigan members of Davao del Norte this week on geohazard and newly issued MGB policies. 

The Sangguniang Panlalawigan members earlier wrote a letter to MGB RXI requesting that topics for the IEC activity should include geohazard as the province has many areas identified as prone to flooding. Vice Governor Rey T. Uy questioned MGB RXI on its response to the province’s request for geohazard assessment to areas identified by the province as relocation sites. 

A copy was provided by MGB RXI on the result of the geohazard assessment conducted to all municipalities particularly on the barangays and puroks within the province and a cd containing the result of the said assessment.
