City of Smart Water Technologies

Metro Cebu faces significant water challenges, which are accentuated by the rapid urbanization and economic development that the city continues to experience. The water demand is expected to triple by 2040. 80% of grey water (i.e. wastewater without human wastes) receives no treatment. Floods also periodically occur in some areas of Metro Cebu. In Metro Cebu, 43% of households do not have drainage systems in their neighborhoods. This is according to a study made by OECD IN 2017 on Cebu's Green Growth.

With Cebu's Government goal of making Cebu Singapore-like, it will enable all stakeholders including private institutions, both national and other local government units, NGOs, schools, and universities to develop and encourage green technologies more aggressively. The City will progressively install smart water technologies, in particular smart water meters, pollution sensors in water streams, and runoff simulation tools to assess flood risk. 

By 2040, Cebu will also have the technologies necessary to create an extensive plan for urban center redevelopment that prioritizes the development of low-emission modes of transportation (ferries, bicycles, and high-capacity rail transit, such as MRT or LRT). It will ultimately be necessary to establish a Metropolitan Urban Observatory to gather and track information on urban green growth and to pinpoint the functional urban region. 

By 2050, Cebu becomes a Green City leading the Philippines as a City of Green Urbanization and Smart Water technologies.
