One of the key targets of the the MDG Achievement Fund (MDG-F) Joint Programme (JP) in the Philippines was the development of capacities at the local level that will enable enhanced access to and provision of water services. While Volume I of the Handbook is aimed at providing the basic concepts and principles of human rights based local Water and Sanitation (WatSan) governance, Volume II was developed to provide a practical guide to the LGU, the community and water service providers (WSPs) on how to operationalize the framework.

For the LGU as the Duty Bearer, the Handbook is a step-by-step guide on how to comply in fulfilling the obligation to realize the target of guaranteeing the provision of safe, available, affordable and acceptable water to the most vulnerable sectors of the community. This publication presents the processes that will be undergone by the different water governance actors following a human rights-based approach.
