OBJECTIVES

The proposed Cagayan de Oro Project and the partnership with CDIA seek to help attain the vision of Cagayan de Oro of being a peaceful, orderly, liveable city with a modern trading and services center where there are equal opportunities for its disciplined citizens to develop and prosper in a clean and healthy environment. The Mission Statement is to create an environment for men and women conducive to sustainable growth and development that would generate investment, increase exports, generate jobs and foster consumer protection. While Cagayan de Oro welcomes economic development and urbanization as these spur economic activity, create more revenues for the government, it also has to address the negative environmental impacts that it brings: air, land and water quality degradation. Cagayan de Oro needs to strike a healthy balance between increased economic development and urbanization on one hand and environmental protection and management on the other.

The overarching objectives of this consultancy are the following: a) To prepare a Pre-Feasibility Study including an Integrated Urban Infrastructure Investment Program for Cagayan de Oro City that consists primarily of: Cagayan de Oro River Watershed Management, Wastewater Management and Solid Waste Management. b) To prepare a Resettlement Plan to address the informal settlements along the riverbank of Cagayan de Oro River including both on-site rehabilitation and relocation options c) To assist Cagayan de Oro City identify financial resources, particularly from the private sector, to implement the integrated urban infrastructure investment program; and d) To identify capacity gaps in the Local Government Unit and develop a complimentary plan that allows the LGU to implement the integrated urban infrastructure investment program successfully. The proposed Project wil address the environmental concerns specially water pollution of the Cagayan de Oro River due to the absence of a sanitary sewerage and efficient drainage system, air pollution caused by stationary and mobile sources and inefficient and unsustainable solid waste management. All of the above will be included in the PFS, although it should be noted that financing may not be secured and only part of the capacity development strategy will be implemented during the PFS period The proposed intervention will improve the health condition of the community specially the poor, by addressing flood and disaster risk reduction and access to basic services in the informal settlements and seek either on-site solutions or relocation into a formal dwelling. It will also redound to the economic benefit of the poor since a revitalized Cagayan de Oro River would mean a thriving aquatic resource; aside from the manual quarrying of sediments (sand) granted to people with riparian rights. Furthermore, city government will be a part of the beneficiaries, as they will be able to leverage the advantages of capacity development aspect of the CDIA intervention.

INTRODUCTION

The Cities Development Initiative for Asia CDIA is a regional initiative established in 2007 by the Asian Development Bank and the Government of Germany, with additional support of the governments of Sweden, Austria and Shanghai. The Initiative provides assistance to medium-sized Asian cities to bridge the gap between their development plans and the implementation of their infrastructure investments. CDIA uses a demand driven approach to support the identification and development of urban investment projects in the framework of existing city development plans that emphasize on environmental sustainability, propoor development, good governance, and climate change. The long term aim of the Cities Development Initiative for Asia (CDIA) is to contribute to the promotion of sustainable and pro-poor urban development, leading to improved environmental and living conditions for all in Asian cities. The Initiative supports identification and pre-structuring of appropriate projects and building management capacity of medium size cities with focus on cities with population from approximately 250,000 up to five million people. In these cities, CDIA supports the implementation of existing city development strategies or comprehensive development plans for socially, economically and environmentally equitable and sustainable infrastructure and urban services.

The hallmark of CDIA is its focus on developing investments in urban infrastructure and services through bridging the gap between city level urban strategies and implementation of specific infrastructure projects with domestic-, international-, public and/or private financing. It does so through three mutually reinforcing action areas which are: a) providing technical assistance in project structuring in order to bring priority infrastructure projects to a stage where they are able to be financed, (including assisting cities to structure their projects in a way to attract market-based international private investment), are mutually supportive and are intended to be brought to bear in cohesion wherever possible; b) strengthening of local institutional prerequisites for development of capital investment infrastructure projects and urban services (including the upgrading of governance systems and enhancement of the revenue basis in order to maximize funding options and capacity); and c) promoting regional dialogue and cooperation on urban management in the Asia region in order to enhance cross-learning from good local practices. In so doing, CDIA contributes to: 1. well prioritized, structured and developed urban infrastructure and services programs and projects that are potentially bankable; 2. long-term viability of these programs and projects by minimizing their ongoing support on unsustainable public subsidies; 3. enhanced institutional and managerial capacities of local governments and city utilities for sustainable planning, implementation, operation and maintenance, and 4. development and strengthening of regional networks of urban management practice.

PROJECT BACKGROUND

a) Cagayan de Oro City request for CDIA support City Government of Cagayan de Oro has submitted an application for CDIA support in the areas of solid waste management, wastewater treatment, drainage and watershed management. The said areas are considered to be highly prioritized within the local government programs and in urgent need of infrastructure investment and technical assistance. These Terms of Reference (TOR) describe the needed technical assistance with focus on preparing a feasible infrastructure investment program for financing through own funds, preferential or commercial borrowing, ODA, PPP or other sources. b) Background General Information Cagayan de Oro (CdeO for brevity) is a rapidly growing city with a total land area of about 562 square kilometers, 18 percent of which is urban area while 82 percent is rural. It is strategically located and the compelling gateway to Northern Mindanao (Region 10). It is the center of trade, commerce and education in the Region. The city has become a melting pot of the region being home to various shopping malls and the choice convention destination of the South. It is also the countrys premier white water rafting adventure destination, attracting local and foreign tourists, thus, earning prestige for the city as an international ecotourism destination.

As CdeO is in boom and bloom due to rapid economic development and urbanization, it also has its share of negative environmental and social impacts brought about by these developments, prominent of which are: Increased in-migration from the nearby towns and provinces searching for job opportunities. These settlers increased the housing demand of the city and most often become informal settlers of public lands particularly the riverbank/waterway easements and coastal areas. Clusters of informal settlers along these easements put a strain on the environment by producing air, water and solid wastes; these wastes ultimately find their way to our creeks, rivers and sea, polluting and degrading our coastal and river water quality. While rapid urbanization brings in more commercial and industrial establishments to the city, in fact it has become the shopping capital of the region and the convention/conference capital of the South, it also brings negative environmental impacts; particularly the degradation of air and water quality due to increased pollution from stationary and mobile sources. Common in every urban centers where people converge for economic opportunities, the most vulnerable groups of people the poor pose a great social problem to the host Local Government Unit as it tries to stretch its Internal Revenue Allotment (IRA) for its social services to the limit as these funds are basically intended for its populace only.

Basic Urban Profile: Location

The Regional Capital of Region X. Cagayan de Oro is geographically nestled between the central coastline of Macajalar Bay to the north and the naturally rich plateaus and mountains of Bukidnon and Lanao del Norte to the south. The municipality of Opol bounds the city on the west side while Tagoloan, with its heavy industrial activities, is her immediate neighbor to the east. Rivers and creeks traverse and bound the city and all these drain to Macajalar Bay. There are seven rivers; Cagayan de Oro River, Iponan River, Bigaan River, Cugman River, Umalag Rivers, Agusan River and Alae River. The more notable creeks are Bitan-ag, Gusa, Kolambog and Puerto Creeks. Population
th

Cagayan de Oro is the 9 most populous city in the country with a population of more than a half million. Its annual population growth rate (APGR) of 2.54% is higher than that of the National and Region rate which is 1.67%. The high APGR is mainly due to immigration from adjoining municipalities. Economic

In a recent study of AIM Policy Center where the city was categorized as one of the Growth Centers with the following set of indicators, perceived as to rank for 10 cities: Dynamism of Local Economy Cost of Doing Business Infrastructure Responsiveness to Business Needs Quality of Life Rank No. 1 Rank No. 3 Rank No. 2 Rank No. 3 Rank No. 3

Human Resources and Training

Rank No. 3

In comparison to the country and other urban areas averages, the city stands at outstanding competitiveness. Noteworthy to consider are the major factors attaining high rank of 1-2 (Dynamism of Local Economy & Infrastructure) that would support and strengthen Cagayan de Oros full development potentials: Taking the citys strides from these comparative advantages, a big challenge is to fully develop infrastructure linkages that would promote the efficient flow of goods, people and information between the City, the different industrial hubs, and the major domestic and international markets that would redound to alleviating the economic conditions of the most vulnerable group the poor. Social

The city has increasing expenditures on social services sector. In 2011, the city government appropriated more than P118 million for the sector alone. This includes - efforts to minimize unemployment - mitigate overcrowding and problems related to informal settlements with lack of basic services through developing more residential subdivisions and housing programs - development of homes for street children and reduce child-labor, and - support to enable education and healthcarfe for poor. Informal settlement is still common and the settlers are particularly vulnerable in flood-prone areas, along the Cagayan de Oro River and in the coastal areas. Environment Solid Waste There is a 80% collection service by the citys private waste contractor to 63 barangays of the city on a 24 hours a day and 7 days a week basis. Since the city has privatized its waste collection with an average of 300 cu.m. of municipal solid waste (MSW) collected daily, collection is more efficient as compared to previous years where it was done by the city administration. The 1 collection assistance is extended by 17 rural barangays using their own collection units. These MSWs are collected un-segregated at source and are dumped directly into the controlled dumpsite (5 has. and 25 years in operation) located at Upper Dagong, Carmen. Private disposals by commercial, industrial and institutional establishments are brought to the city dumpsite and charged with minimal tipping fees. Classification and characterization of waste collected and disposed at the city dumpsite constitute of 90% mixed waste, and an estimated 10% residuals. Recycling activities are done through scavenging which makes it as the major source, if not-the only, of livelihood of the community around the dumpsite. Spontaneous fires occur during summer due to methane build-up since the dumpsite has only two (2) functioning gas vent where flaring is done. Other challenges include: Lack of heavy equipment to clear the accumulating mounds of disposals Lack of perimeter fence that lead to increasing number of scavengers Increased volume of unsegregated waste Pressure from closure of the existing dumpsite as implemented by the Department of

Barangay is the smallest administrative division in the Philippines and is the native Filipino term for a village, district or ward. The barangays are part of and governed by the local government unit (LGU).

Environmental and Natural Resources (DENR) Lack of proper landfill facilities and infrastructure like the drainage system, leachate piping, composting and sorting areas, etc. Drainage CdeO has a combined sewerage and stormwater drainage s`ystem which drains into rivers and creeks that abounds the city and ultimately into Macajabar Bay. The City basically is located on a flood plain and its natural calamity would always be flooding but flood water instantly drains into the Macajalar Bay depending upon the tidal situation of the Bay and the physical condition of the drainage system. Sewerage and Sanitation Most households in the city have their own septic tanks. Present practice of residents and commercial establishment owners is to desludge only when their septic tanks are already full to the point that the flushing does not work anymore. Also, most of the septic tanks of residential houses have leaching chambers which have open bottoms. For new construction, the city is trying to mitigate this risk through the strict regulation by the Building Office to enforce a water tight septic tanks. Desludging services which are done by private service providers are not satisfactory or even sanitary. Another alarming problem is that the city being the regional center has no final disposal facility for this sludge. The lack of monitoring of the private desludgers from regulatory agencies indicates an obvious risk of illegal dumping. The above practises lead to contamination of soil and waterbodies and particularly worrying is the environmental degradation of Cagayan de Oro river and groundwater contamination. Currently, the daily volume of septage is 200 cu.m from 95,300 households. In 2011, CdeO received support from USAID through the Philippine Sanitation Alliance (PSA) for the preparation of a Septage Management Plan and Ordinance to undergo public hearing and for approval in the Sangguniang Panlungsod (City Council). The ordinance seeks to desludge all septic tanks in the city on a five year cycle and have it treated using a centralized septage treatment plant to be located at the newly sited landfill located at Pagatpat, this City. Additional support, however, is needed to link this plan to a wider context to include a centralized Wastewater Treatment Facility and move it forward for implementation. Some recent studies on the water quality of the Cagayan de Oro River reveals very high concentration of E coli which threatened the main eco-tourism activity along the river which is White-Water Rafting and likewise reduced the livelihood opportunities of people living near the river due to scarcity of fish. Cagayan de Oro River Watershed Management The river system has no watershed management plan in the present, while it has received almost all wastes and pollutions from the economic and infrastructure activities of the city, its biodiversity and physical condition has not been taken cared of. Constraints and problems of the city in the sector of watershed management are enormous, but most exigent of all are the unabated discharge of wastewater into the river systems of the city and the continuous occupation of its bank-lines/salvage zone by informal settlers. These two problems/constraints if addressed will solve, in quick succession, the other problems along these watersheds from ridge-to-reef. Flooding, erosion/siltation, pollution and informal settlements have to be addressed now and all these concerns can be integrated into the watershed management strategy which the city would need. The Water Quality Management Board has been recently convened with the DENR as the lead agency and one of their first moves was to take as priority the Cagayan de Oro River System. This means that

as one of the WQMA the river system will have priority status in terms of projects coming out from the Environmental Enhancement Fund. This will enable all the provinces and municipalities located in the headstream of the river and the city to link its efforts towards promoting biodiversity of the river system. On-going initiatives mentioned in the wastewater management sector above will redound to benefit the whole watershed of Cagayan de Oro River System. Also, there is an active proposal for the dredging of Cagayan de Oro and Iponan Rivers. Once implemented, this will make the two rivers navigable and increase its natural storage capacity that can attenuate flooding leading to a more environmentally sustainable method of flood risk management. Infrastructure Roads Total road network of CdeO consists of 202.9 kms. of paved road and 257.1 kms. of unpaved road. With the influx of vehicles coming from other parts of the region and the whole of Mindanao using our National Highways and internal road network, traffic congestion is now a common occurrence in major intersections and spills over even into our internal intersections as traffic builds up along these major intersections. Inadequate and inefficient drainage system causes flood water during storm events to stagnate on the road networks worsening traffic congestion and impacts on the garbage collection services of the city. Water Supply Potable water supply of the city is managed by the Cagayan de Oro Water District using both ground and surface sources. Routine water quality tests are conducted by the district and have been reported to be still pollution-free; however, there is a potent risk of contamination of groundwater along the vicinity of the City Dumpsite since the dumpsite is operating without a liner. Transportation The ever increasing volume of cars traversing the road networks of the city has a clear impact on our air quality as mobile sources. Currently, however, GIZ is supporting the city in coming up with an Air Quality Management Plan and this will address both the mobile and stationary sources of air pollution. However, let it be understood that the transportation sector is not only contributing to air pollution but also water and land since used oil and other waste lubricants have found its way to our drainage systems and into our rivers and creeks. Institutional

The City of Cagayan de Oro is composed of 80 Barangays. It is divided into two (2) Congressional Districts; District 1 with 24 Barangays and District 2 with 56 Barangays. These districts are bounded by a natural boundary which is the Cagayan de Oro River, the most prominent and historical river of the City. The City Government of Cagayan de Oro, a Local Government Unit duly organized and existing by virtue of Republic Act No. 521, as amended, and under the laws of the Philippines, is represented by Hon. Vicente Y. Emano, City Mayor, with office address at the Executive House, City Hall, Cagayan de Oro City and it has 33 Departments/Offices employing around 3,200 employees. Known nation-wide as the home of PisoPiso Housing and Relocation Program for the poor where lots are sold to only one (1) Peso per lot to poor and qualified beneficiaries. The City Government, under its present administration, is also known for its Barangay Empowerment Program where Barangay Government Units are given City Fund Aids to procure and implement their own projects pre-selected by the City Administration from among their own priority listings.

Other projects include livelihood capability building trainings and seminars for women and out of school youth. c) Linkage to ongoing and planned initiatives The Project will not be carried out in isolation but carefully complementing other initiatives within the same or related sectors, carried out by the local government and/or other government agencies, academe, and donor agencies. Some of these as identified by the City are the following: Septage Management Program 2008-2011 (USAID). Reporting finalized, draft ordinance gone through public consultations, ready for approval by SP (City Council). Master Plan and Feasibility Study of Flood Control and Drainage Projects of River Basins of Cagayan de Oro River (JICA and Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH)). Final report was prepared in 2011, focusing on recommendations on early warning systems rather than engineering solutions for permanent flood and drainage control. Thus, the CDIA PFS should fill the gaps here to recommend measures for flood management in certain areas along the river for a more comprehensive solution. Clean Air for Smaller Cities 2010-2012 (GIZ in cooperation with Liceo de Cagayan University and Xavier University, Capitol University and Mindanao University of Science and Technology). The project includes an air emission inventory and has some reference to methane gas emissions from present and future landfills. Ground water conservation strategy for CdeO 2009-2011 (Ateneo de Manila University and National Water Resources Board (NWRB). The strategy looks at ground water pricing to control extraction of ground water, and has bearing on the PFS through issues in wastewater management and location of old and new landfill (groundwater contamination). Integrated Coastal Management Project 2010 (DENR). Workshops were carried out in 2011, and final reporting is on-going. This has reference to the CDIA PFS in flooding risks and handling of solid and liquid waste from people living in coastal areas. Study E Coli contamination of CdO River on CdO river water quality (Liceo de Cagayan University) The Region X Water Quality Management Board, spearheaded by DENR, was formed 2011 and mandated through Clean Water Act. It has identified CdO as a priority area for river cleanup. Macajalar Bay Alliance Project (Xavier University). This includes examination of water quality and biodiversity in the bay. Cooperation between LGUs along the bay for a coordinated, comprehensive approach to pollution and actions for water quality improvements in the bay. Proposals from private sector, ca 10, on waste-to-energy solutions and PPP/BOT schemes. Some proposals include provision for CDM, carbon credits for climate change mitigation. On-going relocation program, Piso-Piso program, with the ultimate goal to offer informal settlers safe tenure in a relocation site including free transportation to their livelihood. Quarterly river water sampling (COD, BOD, TSS, pH, temp, DO ) conducted with the Department of the Environment and Natural Resources- Environmental Management Bureau (DENR-EMB); The PFS and experience gained during the Project period will be shared with Department of Interior and

Local Government (DILG) as a national partner organization of CDIA and for the purpose of possible replication in other Philippine cities. Eventually, assistance in linking the project to financing as provided for by financial institutions such as ADBs Water District Development Sector/Urban Water Supply and Sanitation Project, or similar facilities being offered by the World Bank, KFW and other donor agencies, will pave way to the realization of project objectives and goals.

Counterpart Contribution The budgetary counterpart of the City of Cagayan de Oro to this proposed project is described in the following three categories, namely: 1. Role for Local Experts The city government proposes to engage three (3) local experts in the field of Resettlement/Community Development, Gender Development and Civil Works to assist the CDIA-funded International and National Experts in the fulfillment of the goals of this project. The local experts will ostensibly bring down the discussions to the local conditions of the city in the fields mentioned above more quickly than letting the International/National Experts accustom themselves first to the conditions in the field, thus, maximizing their expertise. I. The Resettlement/Community Development Specialist will be responsible for the social issues in relation to 1) relocation of informal settlers and/or in-situ rehabilitation 2) livelihood (informal recycling/scavenging) in relation to waste collection and disposal, and 3) any other development pertinent to the Project scope. He will ensure that the program is carried out in a pro-poor manner including provision of safety nets for the informal settlers and present options and strategies on how the City will handle resettlements. He will also integrate the proposed resettlement plan with the existing City Shelter Plan. He is also in charge of any communication and public consultation needed for the purpose of proper planning of the resettlement. Together with the Gender Development Specialist, he should assist in preparing the preliminary

23

social and poverty assessment of the proposed infrastructure investments, investigate how poor (and women) can influence project design (gendered investments) and safeguard PFS inputs according to international standards. Furthermore, he together with the Gender Development Specialist should flag any significant social development issues (poverty and gender) requiring further in-depth analysis during follow-on feasibility studies. II. The Gender Development Specialist will be working closely with all team members to ensure that gender issues and concerns are included in project design and implementation. The role of women in relation to floods and disasters as well as in daily routines on handling of wastewater and solid waste will be studied and solutions suggested both making use of womens capacity and reducing impacts on them. She will also work closely with the Resettlement/Community Development Specialist for the preliminary social and poverty assessment and other tasks. The Local Civil Engineer together with the Seconded staff of the LGU is responsible for any inputs in the technical discussions, conceptual design and reporting for the PFS report preparation. He will be supporting particularly the specialists in solid waste management, drainage and wastewater.

III.

2. Role of LGU Staff In addition to the local experts, the city government will also commit to provide personnel coming from the City Planning & Development Office (CPDO), City Local Environment & Natural Resources Office (CLENRO), City Public Services Office (CPSO) and the City Engineers Office (CEO) to help out in whatever needs the experts would have and more importantly to provide linkage since these staffs are experts in their own field of work and their respective offices have all the necessary basic data. Also, they will in turn become the city government experts in the implementation of the studies made. The LGU will also provide access to the GIS office, staff and software for the purpose of making presentations to the City Council or other stakeholders, develop maps and other visuals to the PFS and for the LGU website. 3. Other Expenditures This will cover other basic and essential needs of the project team which would include the following: 1) A separate office to be located at the City Hall Compound 2) A service vehicle solely for the project teams use 3) Rentals for whatever equipments necessary (i.e., computers, printers, projectors, etc.) 4) Budget for workshops and meetings 5) Office supplies and materials 6) Contingency fund e.
