Characterizing Local Water Governance Structure in the Philippines: Results of the Water Managers’ 2013 Survey

Authors / Editors: Joy C. Lizadad Abansi, Corazon L. | Hall, Rosalie | Rola, Agnes


ABSTRACT

This paper provides an empirical basis for local water-governance reforms in the Philippines using primary data from 299 water managers representing water districts, community-based water organizations, irrigators’ associations and local government water providers. Survey results showed that local water organizations are subject to various forms of laws and regulations; there are no set bases for water price determination; and water administration set-up varies from the formal to the loosely informal structures. Recommendations are offered towards responsive local water governance arrangements.
