The Agusan River Basin (ARB) Technical Working Group convened through a Coordination Meeting in Butuan City.

ARB is the 3rd largest river basin in the Philippines, providing a source of water and livelihood to 3 regions in Mindanao: CARAGA, Region X and Region XI. It includes the whole expanse of the Agusan Marsh.

MinDA, together with the DENR, is pushing for the institutionalization of a River Basin Organization (RBO) in the ARB to properly manage and conserve its valuable water and water-based resources.

Archbishop Juan de Dios Pueblos of Butuan, Agusan del Norte Governor Angel Amante-Matba and Butuan City Mayor Ferdinand Amante are also present in the Coordination Meeting.
