6 Background and Needs Statement

 

Water plays a central and critical role in all aspects of life and it has become a major concern not only in the Philippines but around the globe. Water resources development and management issues have been highlighted as it impacts the society, economy and the environment. Under present climate change and variability, addressing these water challenges becomes even more urgent. This provided an opportunity to enhance water resource management and efficiency, increase investment and implement policy reforms. Better water resources management is premised on increasing efficiency and effectiveness of countries in ensuring long term water security.
While various regional programs are continuously being developed and countries continue to address water issues, the time has now arrived for SEA countries to take a serious review and assessment of all the water-related policies and programs as a region and undertake a collective response to the growing water related issues in the region. Monitoring and tracking of progress on a regional level on comparative parameters is required to assist ASEAN in developing regional programs effectively.
It is in this context that the GWP SEA continues to provide platforms for regional discussions and interactions.  Likewise, it is also for this reason, that the Philippine Water Partnership (PWP) proposed the above activity entitled “Tracking Progress on Water Security: The Philippine Experience”.  It will serve as an input in the succeeding efforts to develop common parameters in tracking developments in the water sector, improved data sets and water statistics in support to regional planning and implementation framework towards a water secure Southeast Asia.
The main objective of the activity is to develop a framework with appropriate parameters/indicators for assessing developments in the water sector which will then be used in tracking the Philippine progress on water security.
The following activities were undertaken under Component 1  and 2 implemented in 2014 and 2015:
Conduct of a consultative meeting with selected stakeholders from national government agencies (NGAs), private sectors, non-government organizations (NGOs) and academe.  It aims to discuss the concept of water security and its importance and, arrived to a consensus on the conceptual framework of water security to be adopted in this tracking exercises including priority themes to which progress will be measured using appropriate parameters or indicators which will be based on priorities and existing indicators in the Philippines. Initial inventory of existing indicators used in the Philippines was also  presented.
Development of survey form based on what was agreed upon during the consultative meeting which will then be used in the succeeding tracking exercise
Conduct of data gathering of existing indicators in the Philippines for each core elements of water security framework in the Philippines agreed during the previous consultation.
