The Water Security for Resilient Economic Growth and Stability (Be Secure) Project in the Philippines is a four-year activity that seeks to promote good governance and build capacity for long-term water security, improve access to water and wastewater treatment services, and build more resilient communities.
The Project is implemented in six focal areas: Basilan, Iloilo, Leyte, Maguindanao and Misamis Oriental Provinces and Tuguegarao City. At the national level, activities focus on strengthening water sector regulatory reform. For local and regional activities, the project works with local government units and water service providers at the watershed scale to improve capacities for integrating climate change into local planning and the provision of water supply and wastewater treatment services. Be Secure closely coordinates with the Government of the Philippines, both national and local government units, and other key counterparts including water service providers (public and private) and nongovernmental organizations. Be Secure also works in partnership with academic institutions as centers of excellence that can sustain project initiatives.
