The Philippine Groundwater Outlook (PhiGO) is a three-year collaborative project led by Andrew Barkwith, Ph.D. from the British Geological Survey (BGS) and Ma. Aileen Leah G. Guzman, Ph.D. from the Ateneo de Manila University (AdMU). This project is funded by the PH-UK Newton Agham Joint S&T Cooperation Program on Understanding the Impacts of Hydrometeorological Hazards in the Philippines

This project is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) for its British constituents and by the Department of Science and Technology-Philippine Council for Industry, Energy, and Emerging Technology Research and Development (DOST-PCIEERD) for its Philippine constituents.


Project Objectives

To deliver constant, accessible, and transferrable assessments of climate and population change on regional groundwater resources and their subsequent influence on flood, drought-risk, and socio-economics

  • near-real-time groundwater monitoring systems
  • enhanced models of regional groundwater dynamics
  • seasonal and long-term forecasts of groundwater levels
  • stakeholder-focused reports of flood and drought risk, and cascading hydrological and socio-economic impacts

Site Locations

The following sites were chosen because they were named as part of the nine highly urbanized water critical cities in a study done by the National Water Resource Board (NWRB) and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
