CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE SECTOR
Reformulation of Feasibility Study and Conduct of detailed Design for Hibale SRIP, Danao, Bohol
The project was part of the fundamentals of development laid down by the local government for sustainable self-sufficiency and the reservoir, once finished, was expected to irrigate 350 hectares of agricultural land. Woodfields determined the data needed for the detailed design by reviewing and formulating a feasibility study, undertaking project analysis relative to climate change and detailed design of the reservoir dam and appurtenant structures and irrigation facilities.
Flooding Condition Survey of Tropical Storm “Sendong” in Cagayan de Oro and Iligan City
The flood inundation survey was conducted after the “Typhoon Sendong” hit the Mindanao Area and caused billions of damages to property and human lives at its wake. As the Firm tasked to conduct the study in close coordination with the concerned regional, engineering, and LGU offices to obtain the data/information on the aftermath of “Typhoon Sendong,” Woodfields has mapped out the extents of flooding conditions through flood inundation surveys indicating flood depths and damages in the covered areas. An overall overview of the completed inundation map of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan City in terms of flood vulnerability can be accessed by clicking this link.
Consultancy Services for the Metro Manila Water Security Study (MWSS), Worldbank Funded
The Study provided updated and comprehensive advice to support water security enhancing initiatives in Metro Manila. Woodfields conducted the Study and identified the alternative water sources to meet the growing water demand in the metropolis. Generally, the technical assistance covered the review of the overall water resource management activities in the subject area, review of the water demand projections, and review and analysis of previous studies.
Master Plan for the Agusan River Basin Project
The Technical Assistance provided by Woodfields helped the Government in preparing a Master Plan for the Agusan River Basin in Mindanao through an Integrated River Basin Management (IRBM) approach with the participation of all stakeholders, including civil society, the private sectors, the local government units (LGUs), and the National Government. The goal of the Master Plan was to map out a development strategy plan that promotes optimal development resources and reduce poverty in the Agusan River Basin.
Construction Supervision of Pasig-Marikina River Channel Improvement Project
The Pasig-Marikina River, with a total catchment area of 635 km2, runs through the center of Metro Manila and flows out to the Manila Bay. The Project is part of the efforts of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) to mitigate flood damage in Metro Manila caused by channel overflow of the Pasig-Marikina River. With the financial assistance from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), Woodfields has associated with the Japanese firm (CTIE) to undertake the Study including the Project’s Construction Supervision. Among the Project’s overall objectives is to facilitate urban development and at the same time enhance the favorable environment along the riverine areas. To ensure smooth implementation and effectiveness of the Project, the Consulting Team has undertaken the Information Campaign Publicity among stakeholders in collaboration with the concerned government agencies, as well as proper implementation of the Environmental Management Plan (EMP) and Environmental Monitoring Plan (EMoP), along with the conduct of the Resettlement Action Plan (RAP).
