Added a Section in Wikipedia Rosario, Batangas Article

Just added today a section entitled World Outlook in Local Action in the Wikipedia article about Rosario, Batangas. The following is the addtional section:

World Outlook in Local Action

In compliance with the principles of 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, the Municipal Government of Rosario, Batangas formulated the Aksyon ng Bayan Rosario 2001 And Beyond Human and Ecological Security Plan[2] by virtue of Executive Order No. 98-02 dated October 5, 1998 by then Mayor Rodolfo Guerra Villar.

The plan pursued a sustainable development approach to anti-poverty efforts balanced with concerns for ecological security. This required an active collaboration among the municipal and barangay government units, non-government and people's organizations, and the local community.

To further institutionalize this framework and integrate its principles in local development plans, the Comprehensive Land Use Plan of Rosario, Batangas for Planning Period 2000-2010 (CLUP)[3] was prepared by the Municipal Land Use Committee and the Office of the Municipal Planning and Develoment Coordinator, with technical assistance from the Housing and Land Use Regulatory Board (HLURB). In 2000, the CLUP and its accompanying Zoning Ordinance (ZO) was approved with immediate effect.

Editing Wikipedia Rosario Batangas Article

Today I made some edits on the Rosario Batangas article in the Wikipedia by adding the information that Rosario is also considered as among the interior municipalities of the Batangas Bay Region comprising of 11 municipalities and 2 cities whose catchment areas drain into the Batangas Bay.

I also added an external link pointing to the page describing the Barangay Clusters of Rosario, Batangas in the MyRosarioBatangas.Com website.

This effort should lead readers to have a broader understanding and deeper insight about what makes the Municipality of Rosario, Batangas tick.
