As most of its operations depend on natural resources, BACIWA has taken an active role in addressing and mitigating the adverse effect of climate change through its Watershed and “Ridge-to-Reef” Projects.
For years, BACIWA has worked tirelessly with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and the Negros Forest and Ecological Foundation, Inc. (NFEFI) in restoring and protecting the upper Caliban Imbang watershed (formerly known as BACIWA watershed), which serves as habitat of several endangered wildlife, indigenous to Negros Occidental.
The 1,000-hectare watershed is located between the boundary of Municipality of Murcia and Talisay City. It is accessible by foot through a trail from Sitio Campuestuhan of approximately 25 to 30-minute walk or one (1) kilometer crossing the head water of Eyang-Eyang Creek and lying south in the upstream of Imbang River.
Over the years, BACIWA collaborates with various organizations and academes in reforesting the watershed through various tree growing activities.
