Project Description

According to World Bank website, the development objective of the Metro Manila Flood Management Project for Philippines is to improve flood management in selected areas of Metro Manila. The project comprises of four components:

1. Modernizing drainage areas will construct an estimated 20 new and modernize an estimated 36 existing pumping stations and appurtenant infrastructure, improve the associated waterways and drainage channels, including secondary and tertiary ones as needed, and develop new drains when required.
2. Minimizing solid waste in waterways will carry out neighborhood-level activities near the pumping stations and waterways and drainage channels targeted under component 1 of the project.
3. Participatory housing and resettlement will support three groups of project affected people. Group 1 refers to project affected people (PAPs) who were resettled before December 8, 2014 (the date of the announcement of the project identification mission). Group 2 refers to PAPs that were resettled from technical footprints from December 8, 2014 to project effectiveness. Group 3 refers to PAPs that will be resettled from technical footprints after project effectiveness.
4. Project management and coordination will provide support for the operation of the project management offices in department of public works and highways (DPWH) and metropolitan manila development authority (MMDA) with respect to the management and coordination of their respective parts of the project

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF WORLD BANK

The World Bank Inspection Panel is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by a World Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Inspection Panel, they may investigate to assess whether the World Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can contact the Inspection Panel or submit a complaint by emailing ipanel@worldbank.org. You can learn more about the Inspection Panel and how to file a complaint at: http://ewebapps.worldbank.org/apps/ip/Pages/Home.aspx.
