Cagayan De Oro : To Establish Rainwater Harvesting System

Wazzup Pilipinas!

It is with great admiration to see local governments take the extra initiative to implement environment friendly advocacy programs. They take time to go beyond the traditional and invest on more beneficial projects that will be of importance in the coming future.

In keeping with the Earth Day observance, we now share with you another environmental initiative, this time from the local government unit of Cagayan de Oro (CDO) City.

The City Government of CDO will soon take steps to establish a rainwater harvesting system in the flood-affected community of the Mahogany Resettlement Site in Calaan. The new system will contribute to addressing the overflow of waterways and inundation of streets in the city, as well as provide an alternative source of water for backyard agriculture and other domestic water uses. The system will also help protect aquifers by discouraging excessive communal ground water extraction.

The project is part of the Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) component of  World Food Program WFP’s Disaster Preparedness and Response Programme, and is implemented in partnership with UN-Habitat.

The CCA initiative is being implemented in the highly urbanized cities of Butuan, Cagayan de Oro, Davao, and Iloilo, and aims to strengthen their capacity to manage, anticipate, and adapt to the impacts of climate change.
