      The partner civic groups such as Calamba Multi-sectoral Council for Sustainable Development (CALAMBENO), Serbisyong Tama-Kababaihan, Likhang Kamay, Ugnayan ng mga Samahan ng Mamamayan at Mangingisda ng Rizal, Tambuyog Development Center, Diocese of San Pablo, and University of the Philippines Los Baños, are likewise invited to join the event.

     Moreover, the Laguna and Rizal Provincial, Municipal and Barangay local chief executives; the Laguna 2nd District Representative; and other government agencies such as Department of Education (DepEd), Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Department of Science and Technology (DOST), Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR), Department of Agriculture (DA), Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), and Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG), are expected to attend the launching.

       To start the event, a ceremonial planting of 50 bamboo planting materials will be undertaken along the shoreline of the lake. It will be followed by the actual launching of the DENR CALABARZON bamboo project and the rehabilitation of Laguna Lake through the SIAD Strategy. Alongside these activities will be the ceremonial awarding of special patents under the Handog Titulo Program to 10 schools from all over the region.

       The partner People’s Organizations and Local Government Units will be given a chance to relay to Secretary Lopez their responses on the said project and on the other programs of the Department, and submit their project proposals for possible funding under the SIAD. Concerned Laguna women’s group will also be paid due recognition as partner in the development of the lake.

       Laguna Lake, or Laguna de Bay, is one of the 29 priority areas all over the Philippines selected by the Department for the SIAD implementation.

      SIAD, on the other hand, is one of the main development and management strategies adopted by DENR Secretary Lopez, which addresses the various challenges and opportunities in an area through convergence or integrated efforts among different agencies and stakeholders.
