Phillippines - Supporting Pollution Controls and Sustainable Environmental Monitoring

In this survey, it was evaluated the sustainability of environmental monitoring using the equipment provided to the National Power Corporation (NPC) under the Project. NPC, which is responsible for the operation and management of power plants, does not recognize environmental monitoring as part of its original responsibility. They find no reason to perform monitoring as long as no problem affecting power generation occurs. We examined the operational status of the monitoring equipment provided under the Project as well as the existence of pressure on NPC for the purpose of evaluating NPC's motivation level for environmental monitoring and sustainability.
