Tackling water scarcity in the Philippines

31 Jan 2018, CORDAID

Water scarcity is a critical problem on the Philippine island of Kinatarcan, one of the most devastated areas after super-typhoon Haiyan swept across the country in 2013. In partnership with the local community, Cordaid helps to find durable and low cost solutions to build resilience against water scarcity, drought, salinisation, typhoons and other hazards that come with climate change.
