Hydrology for the Environment, Life and Policy (HELP) Davao Network


The HELP Davao Network is committed to engaging a full spectrum of water stakeholders to work collectively for management of water for all.

Formed in 2004, our efforts have focused on ensuring decision key stakeholders have had access to sound science that can be used to better inform complex decisions and hard choices in relation to the management and wise use of water.

We achieve this by enabling dialogue on existing processes, systems and services for water management. All activities are delivered in collaboration with governments, academe, civil society and communities and in many cases through voluntary approaches. We seek to distil new lessons on the use of science in decision-making at policy and programming levels. We promote adoption of lessons learnt through direct engagement of end users in each step of our water journey.
