Santo Domingo.- The Environment Ministry on Wednesday launched a project that integrates inhabitants of several communities of Yamasa township, eastern Monte Plata province to protect the Ozama river’s upper basin.

Minister Bautista Rojas headed a Government Commission which surveyed the deterioration at part of the basin, adjacent to the Ozama’s source at the rugged area called Palo Bonito.

The plan engages the communities’ inhabitants to the initiative for sustainable development to avert harm to the environment, and protect the Ozama’s water flow.

Rojas announced a community gathering during the next few days, to discuss ways to halt deforestation and the burning and clearing of trees to plant short-cycle crops and for livestock, which he affirms are the basin’s major threats.
