Problem
1. IT WILL PLACE 100,000 LIVES IN DANGER.
The proposed 60-meter Kaliwa Dam will be constructed within a zone of two active tectonics represented by the Philippine Fault Zone and the Valley Fault System which means many lives are at risk.
2. IT VIOLATES THE LAW.
To sign the bilateral loan agreement thru ODA for the Kaliwa Dam Project would essentially violate R.A. 8173 and R.A. 7586.
3. IT IS A DEBT TRAP.
By refusing to be transparent on the Kaliwa Dam despite your Freedom of Information E.O. 2, your advisers have effectively prevented a solidly based scientific study of the Dam. For all their rhetoric your advisers are paving the way to a debt trap.
4. IT IS IGNORES THE IMPACT OF CLIMATE CHANGE.
The collapse of the dams in Vietnam and in Myanmar a few months ago, the Itogon tragedy, the landslide in Naga City, Cebu and the most recent incident in Natonin, Mountain Province are enough signs that the impact of climate change can no longer be ignored.
5. THE PHILIPPINES IS FLOODED WITH RAIN WATER. PROMOTE THE FORESTS, NOT DAM PROJECTS.
The proposed NCWS-Kaliwa Dam Project will inundate 291 hectares of forest from the 9,800-hectare forest in Infanta Kaliwa Watershed, including the sacred site of Dumagat-Remontado.

Solution
The Government should stop immediately the construction as early as possible. This is to avoid any further possible environmental crisis that the country may be facing as a result of this project threat and to preserve the largest remaining tract of old-growth tropical rainforest in the Philippines.

Personal story
We are students from a prestigious University in Tuguegarao City, Cagayan. Our dispute against this project concerns not only our hometown but because we would be still facing the real world soon and we would not want to trade our future just for the benefit of investors and contractors who will initiate the said project. We recognize the objective of the project however, it's our environment at stake.
