This framework, produced by USAID’s Safe Water Activity, aims to help national and local governments in the Philippines address the financing requirements for water resources management (WRM). It focuses on watershed conservation and protection and its impact on the sustainable supply of water for domestic, irrigation, power generation, and other industrial uses.
This framework considers respective mandates and specific roles of government actors in addressing priority activities and financing gaps. It proposes a strategic approach in allocating public resources, as well as mobilizing other sources of finance for WRM. The framework looks at the best use of different financing instruments for WRM, as well as the engagement of national and local institutions and the private sector in mobilizing resources.
