To identify the specific needs of the indigenous peoples (IPs) in Buhi, Camarines Sur, NPC?s Buhi Barit Watershed Area Team (BBWAT) conducted a community profiling through Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) on June 30, 2017.
The PRA was conducted as a preparatory activity for BBWAT?s three year program for the IPs and was done to collect opinion and knowledge from them on their current condition. Information gathered in the said PRA will be evaluated and will be used in identifying programs for the development of IPs.
The activity is the first of a series of PRA for the IP community of Camarines Sur.
Buhi-Barit Watershed, one of the 11 watershed being managed by NPC, supports the Buhi Barit Hydroelectric Power Plant Operation.
