The meeting centered on issues and concerns, both technical and administrative, that may be addressed by the LLDA within the jurisdiction of the MEO-South, particularly within the cities of Muntinlupa and Taguig, and the municipality of Pateros. The meeting also gave the opportunity to strengthen cooperation between the LLDA and the DENR through the MEO-South. The LLDA, an attached agency of the DENR, has the mandate of developing the Laguna Lake region through management of water resources.
