Dream Road The Northern Sierra Madre in Isabela has always been considered as one of the last forest frontiers in the country. Still rich in timber and biodiversity, it can be the perfect tourism destination with all its natural endowments. In recent years, global concern for the area resulted in the declaration of the entire Northern Sierra Madre as a protected natural park. But there's a gargantuan problem stakeholders must face – the area, which is composed of four municipalities, is isolated from the rest of the region as it is landlocked. Such has been the situation even before their foundations as municipalities that residents in the area are far from the reach of the government and other sectors as the only means of transportation is through air and the sea passing through Northeast Cagayan. The good news is that the provincial leadership will pursue the opening of a road network penetrating the vastness of the Sierra Madre mountain ranges.

The bad news? Environmentalists are against such project as they claimed thousands of trees will be cut and the ecological balance will be disturbed. In this case, development is not about trees, it's about people – people who have been deprived of basic services because of their distance from the center of trade and commerce. Reports claimed that the plan is now on the drawing board awaiting implementation. Environmentalists should, therefore, assist instead the government to safeguard their fears of environmental degradation. It's high time the municipalities of Maconacon, Palanan, Divilacan and Dinapigue be opened to the mainstream of development. Trees may be sacrificed along the way, but seen in the long term, that would outweigh the long delayed benefits due the people in the area. We support the plan for a road network for the Northern Sierra Madre area in Isabela if only for the benefit of the generations to come. PSLicas/MGEdale, PIA-2
