About the Water for Tourism Project

The Water for Tourism is headed by Maria AIleen Leah G. Guzman, PhD, Associate Professor and Department Chairperson of Environmental Science, Ateneo de Manila University. The proposed program aims to create a comprehensive water resource assessment and management plan for the Nabaoy River Watershed and Boracay Island through two projects. The project also targets UN SDG 6 which aims to ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.

This program is in response to Executive Order No. 56 (2018). It will be undertaken with member agencies (NWRB, DOST-PCIEERD, DOST-PNRI, DOST-PAGASA) of the Boracay Inter-Agency Task Force (tasked to reverse the degradation of Boracay Island) in collaboration with both local (Ateneo de Manila University and Aklan State University) and international academic institutions (British Geological Survey and Imperial College London).
