The municipality of Kawayan, Biliran pledgeD support to the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and the National Mapping an Resource Information Authority (NAMRIA) in the implementation of the Adopt a Mojon Program under the PRS 92 program of the government.

In a memorandum of agreement recently entered into by the municipality of Kawayan thru Mayor Rodulfo J. Espina, Sr. and the DENR Region 8 thru Regional Executive Director Alfredo S. Pascual, the town of Kawayan shall help in advocating to its constituents, to protect and conserve the geodetic control points or “mojons” which will be constructed by the DENR and NAMRIA in all the barangays of Kawayan. These mojons shall serve as reference of geodetic engineers in the conduct of all kinds of surveys in Kawayan.

RED Rascual emphasizes that aside from Kawayan, the DENR is also implementing the same kind of project in all municipalities region wide. The PRS 92 program aims to provide a standard survey and mapping reference coordinate system that will be used by all offices in their development programs. Before the implementation of PRS 92, agencies like the Department of Public Works and Highways, Agriculture, Agrarian Reform, National Irrigation Administration and others have their own separate reference points whenever they conduct a survey. Under the program, there will be only one national network of geodetic control points or mojons which will be used as reference in all kinds of survey activities by all agencies.

The establishment of mojons under PRS 92 will facilitate land titling and transfer of land titles; reduce the risks of land/property boundary gaps and overlaps; improve land administration and tenure system which forms the basis of all transactions dealing with land; and improve the surveying and mapping capabilities and supports vital government programs and projects. The cost of surveys will be cheaper and affordable for our land claimants because it will be easy for our Geodetic Engineers to locate the reference points, RED Pascual said.

President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo pushed for the full implementation of the PRS 92 Program, as a development program nationwide as she signed Executive Order 321 in 204 directing the full implementation of the program until 2010. (PURIFICACION S. DALOOS)
