Sustainable water supply: Ridge to Coast, Rain to Tap

Vooruitgang: Implementation
Budget: € 499526
Looptijd: 2017-07-31 - 2022-12-30


This game-changing project is to provide a sustainable water supply to flood resettlement areas and vulnerable communities by increasing the resilience of the river catchment, water distribution network and the communities themselves to heavy rainfall, flooding and power outage events. This greater resilience will have a major impact on achieving the long-term objectives and purposes of the FDW programme, including: Poverty alleviation and improved well-being/health; via reduced flood victims, provision of safe water and WASH practices to 40,000 vulnerable people, continuous city water supply during disasters and reduction in water borne / poor sanitation diseases Enhanced self-reliance; via capacity building of COWD to improve operational and financial sustainability, future proofing the water distribution system, training and equipping vulnerable communities on disaster response, and enabling gender transformation Continuing economic growth; via 24/7 supply of safe and reliable water to CDO city with reduced flood disruption to businesses, generating sustainable employment to IPs, and increased income generation of CDO population due to reduction of water-borne disease In 2011 Tropical Storm Sendong caused severe flooding in Cagayan de Oro, killing 1,268 people, making 38,000 families homeless and interrupting water supply for a month. It highlighted the lack of resilience of the river catchment, water supply infrastructure, residents, institutions and response organisations. Recent flash floods are a painful reminder and wake-up call to stakeholders. Cagayan de Oro (CDO) City and River Basin, the Philippines


1) Integrated river basin management outcomes are: 1. Enabling environment in place to reduce the risk of flooding in the Cagayan de Oro river basin, delta and city 2. Up-scaling of Flood Risk Management to 3 other river basin
2) Climate resilient water supply infrastructure outcomes are: 1. COWD’s water supply system is resilient to ‘severe tropical storms’ 2. Improved network efficiency, resilience, redundancy and long-term planning of COWD’s water system 3. Improved operational and financial performance of COWD
3) Improved Water, Sanitation and Hygiene outcomes are: 1. Safe and sustainable water supply services to CDO’s poorest 5% (40,000 people) living in flood resettlement sites 2. Safe sanitation facilities and hygiene practices for CDO’s poorest 5% living in flood resettlement sites and wider catchment area 3. Strengthened capability to prepare for and reduce impacts of natural disasters in CDO’s vulnerable communities


Water system expanded to connect 7,000 vulnerable households. WASH behavioural implementation programme to 40,000 people. 4 communal sanitation facilities, 80 trial household toilets and sludge management capability. Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) campaign targeting 40,000 people
