The League of Cities of the Philippines with funding support from the Delegation of the European Union to the Philippines through the Small Projects Facility is implementing the EU-Philippine Cooperation on LGU Capacity Building on Integrated Urban Water Resources Management. The project is aimed at building the capacity of Philippine city governments on the integrated environment and water management, reduce economic costs attendant to water shortages and pollution, and enhance the capacity of LGUs for urban water governance.
This EU-Philippine Cooperation on LGU Capacity Building on IUWRM (LGUCAP-IUWRM) was officially signed between LCP and the European Commission (EC) last July 25, 2006.
The LGUCAP-IUWRM Project will be jointly implemented by LCP and Delegation of the EU to the Philippines for one year in partnership with the Water Engineering and Development Centre (WEDC) of the Loughborough University in the United Kingdom and the Philippine Women’s University (PWU), Manila.
Six selected cities participated in the pilot-testing under the project. These are Balanga and Batangas in Luzon, Calbayog and Roxas in the Visayas, and Island Garden of Samal and Surigao in Mindanao.
