USAID Philippines

On March 22, 2017, U.S. Ambassador to the Philippines Sung Y. Kim led the USAID’s Water Security for Resilient Economic Growth and Stability (Be Secure) project close-out event in Makati. “I am proud to say that through USAID’s partnership with all six cities, more than 1.3 million Filipinos now have access to improved sanitation facilities. In addition, over 1.5 million more Filipinos now have access to safe and clean drinking water,” Ambassador Kim said.

The $21-million project has been implemented in the USAID Cities Development Initiative partner cities of Cagayan de Oro, Iloilo, and Zamboanga, as well as in the provinces of Basilan, Maguindanao, and Leyte. The project has promoted good governance and built capacity for long-term water security, improved access to water and wastewater treatment services, and built more resilient communities. The event coincided with World Water Day which has the theme “Wastewater.”
