Waterless LGUs to have own supply soon

REALIZING that there are still many municipalities and villages throughout the country that are yet to enjoy adequate and safe water supply, the Department of the Interior and Local Government is now building the capacities of its regional water and sanitation partners and stakeholders to ensure that local government units (LGUs) are able to implement their water and sanitation projects more effectively.

“The Department needs to ensure that regional water and sanitation hubs are ready to train and guide the waterless LGUs to design, build, maintain and operate water, sanitation and hygiene projects and facilities,” said DILG Officer-in-Charge Catalino S. Cuy.

He added that they are strengthening the capacity of the regional water and sanitation hubs to assist them in managing its water programs and to make sure that its target beneficiaries - the waterless LGUs - will be equipped with proper know-how in operating and maintaining water projects in a sustainable manner.

The regional hubs, composed of civil society organizations, state universities and colleges, non-government organizations, water districts, and the private sector, are expected to mentor, coach and assist the target beneficiaries of the DILG water programs.

The DILG, through the Office of Project Development Services, currently manages two water programs – the Sagana at Ligtas naTubig sa Lahat or SALINTUBIG Program and the Assistance to Disadvantaged Municipalities Provision of Potable Water Supply.

Just recently, the DILG conducted a four-day training course dubbed as "Sustainable Delivery of Integrated Safe Water Supply, Sanitation and Hygiene (iWaSH) Programs, “to strengthen the capacity of the regional hubs in providing capacity building programs, services and knowledge products to waterless communities.

He also added that they wanted to make certain that the regional water hubs are capable and well-trained so that they can equip the waterless communities and municipalities efficiently and effectively.
