PH Government Allocates USD 365 Million for Integrated Flood Resilience Project

March 2023

In February 2023, the Philippine government announced allocating PHP 20 billion (USD 365 million) for the first phase of the Integrated Flood Resilience and Adaptation Project in the three major river basins in the country – Abra, Ranao (Agus), and Tagum-Libuganon – to mitigate flood damage, reduce flood risks, and improve climate resilience in these locations.

The projects consist of the construction of flood protection infrastructures, the improvement of strategic Flood Risk Management planning, and the strengthening of community-based flood risk measures.

Some of the undertakings under the infrastructure component will be the construction of dikes and bridges and the rehabilitation or upgrade of existing structures. X-Band radars are also proposed to be installed to enhance rainfall monitoring and early flood warning.
