Rene Celespara



For Rene Celespara, mayor of the town of Bobon, programs and projects on water, sanitation and hygiene should remain a priority even beyond the end of the SDGFund’s iWASH program. During the presentation ceremony in December 2016, the local representative said that "water plays a critical role in the integration process and we all have the responsibility to contribute to development", while thanking the participation to the first sectorial planning workshop on water. "After the evaluation last year, we were able to obtain data that reflects the real situation of our municipality. If there is no access to water, there cannot be sanitation and hygiene either. The projected costs and investments based on these objectives for the next decade are of 32 million Philippine Pesos (some 613.000 US dollars) for water supply and 3.7 million for sanitation.
