As a solution, Aidenvironment worked with the community to use the existing rocks in the region to tap water and make it widely available. With the rocks already in place and the arrival of the bi-annual rainy season in Agago, the first rainwater harvesting system was created.

Aidenvironment assists with catchment planning in the Philippines

The Philippines are highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. The Baoy Catchment in Surigao Del Norte Province on Mindanao is no exception. Current water-related issues in the catchment include for example flooding, saltwater intrusion and siltation of rivers and irrigation infrastructure. These issues will probably get worse in the future due to climate change and deforestation.
