Project Description

According to ADB website, the TA seeks to demonstrate climate resilient green growth options in critical watersheds in the lower Marikina river basin, Camarines Sur and Davao Oriental and strengthen the capacity of local government units (LGUs) to mainstream climate change concerns into development planning. Priority is given to watersheds because of their role as _water support system' for both upstream and downstream communities such as domestic water consumers, irrigation water users, and hydropower companies. The TA will create a green growth road map for three critical watersheds by considering five dimensions:
1. Economic development
2. Resilience to climate change
3. Biodiversity, ecosystems and social development
4. GHG emissions
5. Poverty alleviation
