How does Dumaguete City in Negros Oriental measure up to the UN-MDG target of having access to safe drinking water available to 86.6 percent of a country's population by 2015? Or to the Philippine government's target of providing such access to 92-96 percent of its citizens by 2010? How about the municipalities of Sibagat, Bayugan, and Prosperidad in the province of Agusan del Sur? How do they compare in terms of local water service delivery for their populations? This case study project conducted under the auspices of the PIDS and UNICEF provides some revealing answers.
