The University of the Philippines Resilience Institute (UPRI), represented by Dr. Alfredo Lagmay and Dr. Harold Aquino, provided an in-depth explanation of the benefits of the proposed Retarding Basin for the city. Their expertise shed light on the importance of effective rainwater management to mitigate flooding and enhance the city's resilience.
