Cotabato City has this downtown that is quite similar to Iloilo and Cebu's minus the traffic.

I miss this city so much.

American People Assist in Building New City Square in Cotabato

U.S. Embassy Photo Release
July 12, 2007


American People Assist in Building New City Square in Cotabato;
U.S. Ambassador Kenney Inaugurates Complex During Visit







Ambassador Kristie A. Kenney traveled to Cotabato City on July 9-10, where she joined Mayor Muslemin Sema and Undersecretary Virgilio Leyretana, Chairman, MEDCo, to inaugurate the new Cotabato City Square. The American people through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) worked with the local government to build this new central market and business area, which will be a place for thousands of residents to shop, do business, and get medical care.

Pictured above cutting the ribbon in the entrance to the Cotabato City Square are (L to R) Acting USAID Mission Director Daniel Moore; Bai Sandra A. Sema, First Lady of Cotabato City; Ambassador Kenney; City Councilor Froilan Melendres; Mayor Muslemin Sema; and City Councilor Abdullah Andong.

The Cotabato City Square is part of a new government center and town complex planned by the local government to decongest the central business district. It will serve the six adjoining urban barangays, with a total population of about 31,000.

“I’ve always thought of Cotabato City as a center of commerce, industry, and innovation, and now that I’ve seen for myself the great products produced by entrepreneurs here, I know there is going to be a lot to showcase in this wonderful building,” said Ambassador Kenney during the inauguration ceremony. “It is part of the peaceful future of Cotabato City, and it is wonderful to be a part of that.”



Through USAID’s Growth with Equity in Mindanao (GEM) Program, the American people assisted in constructing the commercial building that serves as the new city square. The building has a two-story entrance hall with administrative offices and comfort rooms, plus 60 one-story stalls for businesses that surround an open square. The U.S. Government also helped fund interior roads, drainage and sewerage facilities, potable water and electrical lines, perimeter fence and vehicle parking area, installation of lighting facilities, landscaping, perimeter fence, walkways and a paved parking area.



The American people have many other ongoing programs and partnerships in the Cotabato area, ranging from environmental support to livelihood development. The Ambassador toured many of these project sites during her two-day visit to Cotabato City.



In the city’s Barangay Kalangan 2, Ambassador Kenney turned over a boat landing built by the U.S. Government at the request of local officials so farmers, fishermen, and traders can have a more efficient and safer water transport system. The American people through USAID have built almost 900 roads, bridges, drainage ditches, ports, and other infrastructure buildings in Mindanao.

At a regional summit on environmental governance for Islamic leaders, Ambassador Kenney, Mayor Sema, and Secretary Kabuntalan P. Emblawa of the DENR-ARMM launched a source book called “Al Khalifa” that guides Muslim communities on how to improve management of forests, coasts, and solid and liquid wastes. USAID worked with local Islamic leaders and scholars to write the book.

Ambassador Kenney also gave the keynote address at the Women’s Forum on Poverty Reduction, a gathering of Mindanao’s female leaders to address issues of poverty, environmental degradation, and conflict.

On behalf of Project Handclasp, a San Diego-based charity, Ambassador Kenney and Commodore Bruce Stewart of the USS Peleliu’s Pacific Partnership mission donated to the Mindanao Emergency Response Network 15 pallets of goods for distribution to needy communities. The goods being donated to Philippine families include medical supplies, toys and children’s items, and hygiene supplies.

The USS Peleliu, a U.S. Navy ship, has been in the Philippines for the last month on a goodwill mission to provide free health clinics for citizens; build and improve housing, schools, and emergency shelters; and deliver donated goods such as clothes, toys, food, and medical supplies.

5,000 mangrove seedlings planted in Basilan

By Rene V. Carbayas

Isabela City, Basilan (15 August) -- There is more to life than the stories of death and violence in Basilan as various stakeholders from government, non government organizations, academe, and the military and police took the time out to plant some 5,000 mangrove seedlings in Maloong Canal in Lamitan City, Basilan.

"This bears a similar degree of importance, if not more important as the pressing issue of global warming that affected more people than the war on terror in Basilan, which Basileños should also take," Nagdilaab Foundation Executive Director Miriam L. Suacito said during her message at the opening ceremonies of the Mangrove Tree Planting.

She added that the activity is the Basileños way of a pro-active move to protect the environment as her staff led some 50 participants in the knee-deep muddy coastline to the planting site.

The activity was made possible through the support of the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation's Zamboanga Basilan Integrated Development Alliance (ZABIDA) in partnership with the Nagdilaab Foundation Inc. (NFI), together with the LGU/MAO EcoGov, BFAR, DA and the DENR.

The activity, which is geared towards maintaining ecological balance and in the preservation of Basilan's Marine ecosystem, was also participated in by the Mindanao Autonomous College, troops from the 9th Marine Battalion, and representatives from the Basilan Provincial Police, the Philippine Information Agency, the Isabela Foundation Inc.-CCF Affiliate, and the constituents of Maloong barangay.


Stakeholders trecked the knee-deep mud to participate in the magrove tree planting in Maloong Canal in Lamitan City, Basilan last Aug 14. (PIA 9)

CENR Officer Romy L. Mangkabung of Lamitan City expressed his appreciation to non-government organization for initiating such activity knowing that this will increase awareness among people and even among government agencies. He revealed that his office will be conducting a massive rehabilitation of denuded forest land in Basilan. He said that some 2/3 of the total area of Forest land were denuded as a result of the continued practice of the kaingin system of some farmers and or illegal logging.

Bringing with him some of his troops, Lt. Ben Cervo, PN(M) of the 9th Marine Battalion stressed that the task of the Philippine Marines is "not only as protector of the people but of the environment as well."

The presence and support of government agencies is a manifestation of the government's commitment, especially the Arroyo Administration, in promoting a green Philippines by coming up with pro-environment measures as part of the President's 8 by '08 program.

The group is also scheduled to hold more mangrove tree planting activities at Tampalan in Isabela City, Bohe Tambis in Tuburan, and Langaray in Sumisip by the end of this month. (PIA-BASULTA)

Bulingan Falls, Lamitan, Basilan



This is Bulingan Falls near Lamitan, Basilan. We traveled quite a distance and got lost a couple times trying to find this place, but it was worth the trek. Quite a beautiful area of Basilan!
