Officers and staff of the Pasig River Rehabilitation Commission during 2018 Asia Riverprize Gala Dinner Awards Night in Sydney, Australia, 16 October 2018.  Ilog Pasig was proclaimed the winner of the inaugural Asia Riverprize award organized by the International River Foundation based in Brisbane, Australia.

It was my inspiration to bring Pasig River to the international scene and this was the reason why I attended and presented a paper in 2015 International River Symposium held in Brisbane, Australia. You can check the program and the paper itself: http://riversymposium.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/Rey_Ramos.pdf.  After my presentation, the moderator of the program approached me and encouraged to apply for the annual competition. Well, I left PRRC on the same year but my inspiration for Ilog Pasig is carried over until now with the new leadership/administration of the agency. This burning desire to bring river systems of the country to the international scene is still here in my heart .  With the newest achievement of Ilog Pasig, it brings more flames to my desire to do the same in my home province – Romblon. Someday, one of these river systems in Tablas and Sibuyan will also be presented and admired and become our legacy in protecting our Mother Earth’s resource – water!
