CSPPS WP No. 2017-10: Climate-Proofing Water Governance – The Albay Tres Quinale A Watershed Experience

Due to multi-sectoral and geographic impacts of changing climate, climate risk management should be seen from the context of watersheds. Watershed governance is a multi-sectoral process that should address the varying interests of a wide range of stakeholders while at the same time taking into account the sustainability of the resource. This necessitates an understanding of how various stakeholders decide and act as they usually respond to risks based on their perspective and interests. This paper illustrates this point using the case of the Albay Tres Quinale A watershed. Using the institutional analysis framework and problem/solution tree analysis, it identifies the actors from the national to local levels involved in water governance, raises some issues related to water governance within the watershed and surrounding areas; and response strategies from a particular institutional standpoint. Findings affirm that the problems and corresponding solutions cannot be singly handled by an institution as problems are compounded by inefficiency of facilities not only due to effects of climate hazards but also because of lack of institutional coordination. Sharing and exchange of information among stakeholders and use of science-based decision support tools are therefore encouraged to improve watershed governance in the Quinale A watershed.
