|PJD 2009 Vol. XXXVI No. 2-d||An Assessment of the Local Service Delivery of Potable Water in Dumaguete City and Selected Areas of Agusan del Sur Province|
|Israel, Danilo C.|
This paper assessed the local service delivery (LSD) of potable water in Dumaguete City and selected areas of Agusan del Sur. It is based on a recent study conducted by the Philippine Institute for Development Studies (PIDS) and the United Nations Children`s Fund (UNICEF). The results and findings of the study indicated, among others, that Dumaguete City had met national and Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) related to potable water delivery while some of the covered municipalities of Agusan del Sur were far from achieving them.Findings also showed that LSD in the two sites faces numerous problems--many of which were institutional in nature--that need to be addressed if national and international goals are to be realized. Some recommendations, including those on the institutional and other related aspects, were put forward for the further development of the LSD of potable water in the two sites as well as in similarly situated areas in the country.
