Highly affected were off grid hinterland poor villages who lost potable water and renewable energy power (mostly community based- microhydro systems) The project intends to restore electricity and water supply to 1000 indigenous peoples in 10 villages to revive lighting facilities and to power ice and corn milling machines as well as gaining back access to potable water.

Challenge

The Super Typhoon Mangkhut (know locally as Ompong) blasted the northern tip of the Philippines leaving its substantial damage. Typhoon Mangkhut heavily smashed out most of the areas in the northeastern Philippines leaving fatalities and displacing thousands of people. Typhoon Mangkhut's damaging winds and massive storms brought widespread damage and affect the infrastructures, agriculture lands, and livelihoods of different communities in Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR).

Solution

This project, when funded, is intended to repair and rehabilitate the Community-based Microhydro Power Projects as well as the water distribution systems in the communities. Particularly, the project will rehabilitate damaged electro mechanical devices, power houses, panel boards, transmission lines, milling machines, infrastructures such as canals, forebays, piping systems and water impounding areas. This project also intends to assist rehabilitation of the catchment areas and watersheds.

Long-Term Impact

Repairing the damaged parts into more robust components will ensure that the villagers will have adequate resiliency through sustained household lighting and power for post harvest processing and other livelihood applications of energy to gain more income. Importantly, women and children's burden will be lessened in fetching water from distant sources with rehabilitated water tanks and pipings. These will strengthen their capacities in disaster preparedness and community cooperation
