Pacific Urban Update 2016
Institutional Document | February 2017

 
ADB’s operations in the Pacific help provide essential services to growing urban populations for water supply, wastewater, and solid waste management.
Residents in the Pacific are increasingly attracted to towns, as these urban areas become centers of commerce, seats of government, and places of opportunity and hope. The urban concentration in many Pacific developing member countries (DMCs) contributes to public health risks. Diseases related to poor water, sanitation, and hygiene are prevalent. Sustainable social and economic development in the Pacific region’s cities and towns requires significant investment and corresponding institutional reforms to improve the quality of, and access to, urban services.
ADB works across the Asia and Pacific region to strengthen communities and improve lives by supporting governments, businesses, and infrastructure to operate more effectively. Together with Pacific DMCs, ADB is developing solutions on a case-by-case basis, according to the unique situation of each country and drawing upon lessons from past projects in the region.
ADB’s urban operations in the Pacific in 2016 have been focused on
increasing access to safe water and sanitation;

upgrading and rehabilitating transmission and distribution networks, and reducing nonrevenue water;

climate-proofing water and sanitation infrastructure;

capacity development of water utilities, utility reform and strengthening the financial performance of utilities;

promoting stakeholder engagement and empowering communities in decision-making with respect to water and sanitation services; and

Improving solid waste management services

The Pacific Urban Update 2016 discusses the program, projects, and technical assistance (TA) active in Pacific developing member countries during 2016, including projects and TA which closed in 2016. Selected pipeline program, projects, and TA proposed for 2017–2020 are also discussed.

Stop Trying to Save the World


Deworm

Big ideas are destroying international development
BY MICHAEL HOBBES
November 18, 2014

In the late ’90s, Michael Kremer, then an economics professor at MIT, was in Kenya working on an NGO project that distributed textbooks to schools in poor rural districts. Around that time, the ratio of children to textbooks in Kenya was 17 to 1. The intervention seemed obvious: Poor villages need textbooks, rich donors have the money to buy them. All we have to do is link them up.

But in the early stages of the project, Kremer convinced the researchers to do it differently. He wanted to know whether giving kids textbooks actually made them better students. So instead of handing out books and making a simple before-and-after comparison, he designed the project like a pharmaceutical trial. He split the schools into groups, gave some of them the “treatment” (i.e., textbooks) and the others nothing. Then he tested everyone, not just the kids who got the books but also the kids who didn’t, to see if his intervention had any effect.

It didn’t. The trial took four years, but it was conclusive: Some of the kids improved academically over that time and some got worse, but the treatment group wasn’t any better off than the control.

Then Kremer tried something else. Maybe the kids weren’t struggling in school because of what was going on in the classroom, but because of what was going on outside of it. So again, Kremer split the schools into groups and spent three years testing and measuring them. This time, the treatment was an actual treatment—medication to eradicate stomach worms. Worm infections affect up to 600 million children around the world, sapping their nutrition and causing, among other things, anemia, stomachaches, and stunting.

Once more, the results were conclusive: The deworming pills made the kids noticeably better off. Absence rates fell by 25 percent, the kids got taller, even their friends and families got healthier. By interrupting the chain of infection, the treatments had reduced worm infections in entire villages. Even more striking, when they tested the same kids nearly a decade later, they had more education and earned higher salaries. The female participants were less likely to be employed in domestic services.

And compared with Kremer’s first trial, deworming was a bargain. Textbooks cost $2 to $3 each. Deworming pills were as little as 49 cents. When Kremer calculated the kids’ bump in lifetime wages compared with the cost of treatment, it was a 60-to-1 ratio.

This is perfect TED Talk stuff: Conventional wisdom called into question, rigorous science triumphing over dogma. As word of Kremer’s study spread, he became part of a growing movement within international development to subject its assumptions to randomized controlled trials.

Dozens of books and articles (and yes, TED Talks) have tracked the rise of the randomistas, as they’ve come to be called. The most prominent of these, and the most fun to read, is Poor Economics, sort of the Principia Mathematica of “obvious” development interventions tested and found wanting.

If someone is chronically malnourished, to pick just one example, you should give them some food, right? Duflo and Banerjee describe dozens of projects finding that, when you subsidize or give away food to poor people, they don’t actually eat more. Instead, they just replace boring foods with more interesting ones and remain, in the statistics at least, “malnourished.”
In Udaipur, India, a survey found that poor people had enough money to increase their food spending by as much as 30 percent, but they chose to spend it on alcohol, tobacco, and festivals instead. Duflo and Banerjee interviewed an out-of-work Indonesian agricultural worker who had been under the food-poverty line for years, but had a TV in his house.
You don’t need a Ph.D. to understand the underlying dynamic here: Cheap food is boring. In many developing countries, Duflo and Banerjee found that even the poorest people could afford more than 2,000 calories of staple foods every day. But given the choice between the fourth bowl of rice in one day and the first cigarette, many people opt for the latter.
Even in countries where development projects worked, where poor people went from hungry to nourished, they weren’t more likely to get a job or make significantly more money. All the appealing metaphors of NGO websites and academo-best-sellers—“the poverty trap,” “the ladder of development”—go limp under the magnifying glass of actually being tested.

How to Give Life to a Slowly Dying Agricultural System


How to give life to a dying agricultural system

We all want food security.  The Philippines is blessed with climate and land resources for rice and corn farming.  When given additional professionalization and mechanization, empowered by the private sector and supported by the government for long term and sustainable development, it will create provincial self sufficiency in just a year.  Here is an idea of a  program for rice or corn farming that will combine private sectors business money with grass root provincial farmers will create opportunities for rapid development.

The private sector investment to give production loans, modern farm machinery and equipment leasing, state-of-the-art dryers/rice mill/post harvest facility/seed processing center project loans, a sovereign guarantee to secure such developmental loan, an allotment of land for such a pilot development and a waiting domestic or international market for farm rice or corn products- these are the key ingredients of a pilot program that when proven successful can be replicated on every provinces.

The government may not  be able to afford to allocate such great funds on localized project.  The cost would be too high for our provincial agricultural development budget.  Ownership is also a question.  Development can stop abruptly or may continue in another direction after each change in administration.  These are all detrimental to our lowly Filipino farmers who actually stagnate and grow old waiting for that one great working chance.  Desperate and hopeless farmers pawn their family inherited farmlands in the absence of such support system.  The average age of farmers in some provinces rose up to 65 of age.  The newer, younger, able generation does not want to be farmers anymore.

Government development programs for rice or corn farming are mostly designed for small farmers and cooperatives. The general sentiment for it is slow and incomplete.  The observed development is dragging and the program wanting more financial support or technology.  A respite to a certain local challenge is being addressed but the total solution far from it.  Everything is a problem of right funding.

But for those farmers in Isabela who professionalized farming by infusing capital money and investing money in their own modern farming contraption, rice farming is at par with popular cash crops in the country, maybe more in profitability. So it is not rice farming but the money and technology in rice farming that is being missed by our grass root farmers.  Given the chance to professionalize their ranks, have an investor to provide finances, and have the opportunity to get their hands on modern day rice farming machines, add the corporate management discipline of having all the land owners own their own company and steer it to whatever heights in rice production business (or corn), then our grass root farmers will have that sought after farming leverage.

We have thought of that.   We conceptualize a program that could be implemented on a provincial level.  A farming  program that is carefully prepared, with specially packaged agreement between guarantors/investors/technology providers, and a market agreeing to buy all farm produce.  It is ready to be implemented and started for any interested province.  For a 2,000 Hectares contiguous rice land of a particular province for example, it will have their own modern rice mill (around 10T/Hr capacity), 8 modern dryers, 1 seed processing center, leased modern land preparation machines like rotavators and tillers, leased modern combine harvesters, and maybe- a husk fired power plant of their own.

Padiscor Corporate Farming

All these effort to find a way to have sustainable long term farming development is dedicated to our Filipino Farmers.  They deserve a better deal in life.  We are seeking partners who can adopt JcGreg Solutions for us to build on these ideas.  Being the creator of JcGreg Solutions, I am willing to have all these works done over the years under a partner who can commit to resources needed to move a business inline with social entrepreneurship.  To grow it and help others in the process. A triple bottom line business attuned to the current needs of the Filipino people to see real progress and sustainable income for the community.

Empower the Barangays of the Philippines


Untitled


The Philippines is uniquely organized, and its constitution empowers the smallest local government unit with its own COUNCIL. Even Barangay 630, Sampaloc, Manila, with a population of only 48 people as of 2010 census has a Barangay Chaiman/Captain and 7 councilors.

Every member of the council is elected by the registered voters of the barangay residents and each of these officials receive a monthly salary from the government. They are paid to serve the people.

There are 42,036 barangays in the Philippines as of the year 2015, which means that there are 42,036 “punong barangay” or barangay Captains.

These barangays belong to municipalities and cities and each municipality and city elects a barangay chairman/captain leader from the pool of barangay captains and the winner gets the title of “ ABC (Association of Barangays Council) President“. The ABC president then gets a position in the municipality/city council. This position gives him/her the same power as the rest of the elected city/municipality councilor and with the added bonus of the same yearly salary of a city/municipality councilor. This is a very powerful political position.

There are 1,634 ABC (Association of Barangay Council) presidents in the Philippines. Derived from the 1490 municipalitiesand 144 cities. Each of these ABC presidents have the power of a city/municipality councilor and has an office within the city/municipal council.

These group of ABC presidents are then de facto members of the “Liga ng Mga Barangays” or “League of Barangays of the Philippines”. These members then get together to elect the officers for this “Liga” or “League”. Then the officials of course get augmented salaries and traveling expenses for running this organization. This is one heck of a powerful government organization. Here is a link to its constitution and by-laws.

There is only one official “Liga ng Mga Barangays” government organization. However there are several Facebook pages for “Liga ng Mga Barangays”, here are some:

The salvation of the Philippines does not solely rest on the 3 main government branches of the government (executive, legislative and judicial). It also rest on the officials of the barangays. The barangay system is the main salvation of the Philippines. e.g. “Saving the rivers and lakes of the Philippines” , “The reforestation of the Philippines” and “Boosting the economy via tourism”.

The barangay officials are the true peace keepers of the Philippines. They have their fingers on the pulse of the nation.
Here is an information that most Filipinos do not know. Every structure, every resource in the Philippines, and every citizen within the Philippines is within the barangay system. Yes, even the Malacañang Palace is within a barangay.

Most city halls and municipality halls, provincial capitols, government offices, hospitals, and businesses do not mention the barangay name within their addresses. The Filipino driver’s license asks only for the Street no., City or Municipality, and Province. The barangay name is disregarded.

The Philippines department of tourism does not promote the barangays. All their promotions about the tourist spots or resorts rarely mention the name of the barangay where the resorts are located. Only the name of the city or municipality or province is mentioned.

Please pass this message on to as many as you can.

Impact Development Business. The Philippines and the ASEAN.


asean

Care to do impact development work in the Philippines and the rest of the ASEAN Region, direct and where it matters? I have an integrated poverty alleviation idea that will provide marginalized communities with their own renewable power source, sustainable farming livelihood, climate change mitigation, and agro trade industry development.

Poverty Alleviation Social Enterprise.
http://jcgregsolutions.weebly.com/blogs/communal-post-harvest-facilities-for-upland-rural-farmers 

The Philippines has power deficiency problem and needs more power generation facilities especially on remote areas. These communities have marginalized existence, no power, no industry, no jobs, residents relying mostly on tilled government land to whatever can be planted. Agricultural produce though is short lived in the absence of post harvest and food processing facilities. Poverty and hunger is great especially during off crop season.

There is a need for more generated power. A situation that we can take advantage of.
http://jcgregsolutions.weebly.com/blogs/wanted-renewable-energy-investors-in-far-flung-areas

We can use the chance and opportunity to hit so many birds in one stone, make the given situation an impact development platform where real change and progress can be attained. Maybe starting with the Philippines, other ASEAN nation needing help next, and then all the rest of the world where poverty needs to be addressed.

This is a solution creating perfect synergy between the planet and all the living things on it. Neutral and beneficial for all.

The plan is to integrate green, earth friendly, sustainable livelihood, local agro-industrial development, more local agricultural based jobs, all poverty alleviation components to generate power using locally grown crop fuel (biomass).

The said Social Enterprise has the following characteristics below:

1. A big and compelling problem to tackle.

2. An idea that can be duplicated on any location. Sustainable. Self sufficient.

3. An entrepreneurial personality and track record.

4. An obsession to scale an organization up and running with a very small senior decision-making authority (an Executive Director or CEO)

5. A desire to tackle the process of scalable design.

6. A full understanding of design process and tools.

7. Most importantly, an openness to new ideas and willingness to change course to make things better.

The work is to bridge project and funding to create desired impact development results. It is a startup that already has traction, waiting projects, local network, global publicity ranking, suppliers of technology, and expert service providers, ready to move like clockwork when fueled into action.

The enterprise, aside from being a leverage creator for those without, will have revenue from represented equipment manufacturers and service providers: therefore, would have the chance to return the investment.

Once two or more projects are in place, it will turn into a self sustaining business that will seek to cover more areas to do projects on.

It is integrated therefore wide range in its scope and effect. This endeavor will be private sector initiated and would be apolitical. The main objective is to get the benefits of technology direct to its recipients minus governmental bureaucracy and red tape. It will create local social entrepreneurs or impact development champions to embark on a decentralized biomass renewable energy generation business. The resulting synergy will create jobs and will usher local progress.

This Business of Helping Others


 

untitled

Sustainable CSR that pays for itself. Poverty alleviation is a triple bottom-line business.Bigger and much better.  No business downward lifespan curve.  It goes on and on. A sustainable program with local power generation, all year round renewable fuel source, community agri based livelihood, idle land resource use, post harvest facilities for any crop in season, agro based industry development, jobs for all, income for all, and food on their table. A local community empowerment endeavor. Self sufficient. Profitable. An integrated approach where investment is recoverable. The return of which can duplicate similar impact development project on other sites needing attention. Would you like to do this helping business? I am looking for the right investor or company to build and grow a Philippine based For-Profit Social Enterprise.  It is a vision to create and spearhead ASEAN Region impact development business.

How to give the poor a leverage in life


choose social enterprise

This is about creating leverage in life for the poor. It is a profitable additional business opportunity for business owners. A triple bottomline business division for the proponent, livelihood for those without, and a breathing space for the planet.

National poverty alleviation programs that we have were either short term or stop gap types- more on political grandstanding, dole-outs and milking cow projects. It is big money in Trillions of peso down the drain over the years. Great amount on sub-standard and fleeting endeavors. SOP and corruption made a few of us wealthy but stole the chances of the many.  We have tax money good enough to put something lasting and efficient but we chose the cheapest and the short term for recurring commissions and perks. Over priced projects and programs delivering substandard results or nothing at all because of corruption. The rich became richer, the poor became poorer.   No wonder why poverty still is the main challenge for every Filipino. We need to do something. If our government can’t, the private sector can and must do the necessary things to at least preserve the dignity of the Filipino.

We need to create a business that will really help the poor. I mean, really help the poor.

There is nothing wrong in having a big business . Nothing wrong having so much profit from it. Nevertheless, what we do must contribute to the plight of those without. Hoping to make the world a better place not only for us but for everyone. Not just money for money’s sake but a sense of social responsibility to help the poor in the process.

We can do it without sacrificing profit. Wonder if I can build such business division for you.

See what I have.

Barangay Power Plant. A Paradigm Shift.


1

Can this usher positive change on the grass-root community level?  Can it build a nation? Create disaster preparedness? Can it be the channel our national government is looking for to connect to the 42,000 ground LGU’s we have everywhere in our country? Maybe not all but only those critically situated islands and provinces identified as typhoon disaster prone?

Barangay organic waste for fuel. Grass-root. Micro. Sustainable. Decentralized. State-of-the-Art. High technology. Zero waste. Income generator. Livelihood creator. Green. Clean. No incineration. No burning. Reliable. Simple. Easy. Fast. Long term. United Nation’s proven technology in Africa for 10 years.

See for yourself and answer those questions above.

Let me take you first on a short introductory tour.  The system is a first rate high technology biogas power generation package that is first in the world.  It is similar to a state-of-the-art biogas power plant with all the automation and instrumentation to make it safe and efficient.  To give you an idea what that is, click a short video link below.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SbcwpAYi2w4

An efficient and reliable biogas system must not be only tanks, pipes, and valves.  it must be controlled and biogas production analyzed.  Fuel mixed observed and studied to create the perfect system to give extra value for your money.

It has lots of leading technology attributes.  Lots of “firsts” in the world of biogas technology.  It means “value for money” and headache free operation.  It may be thought of initially as expensive compared with low cost inferior models and design but it is not.  There is no comparison really. Your every centavo well spent for the long years to come with Mini Biogas Power Plant.

Unique Value for Money Point 1
Replacement of 72 000 Litre of Diesel Fuel per Year – using “GRASS” only.
No body can do that. Only Enerbon MBPP can!

Unique Value for Money Point 2
Multi-variable Organic Feed Stock  – today food waste, tomorrow rice husk, the day after grass, then chicken litter and then market waste.
No body can do that. Only Enerbon MBPP can!

Unique Value for Money Point 3
Gas Output per feed tock maximized 20-50% more than conventional low cost systems anaerobe digestion systems.
No body can do that. Only Enerbon MBPP can!

Unique Value for Money Point 4
Fully monitored, stabilized temperature, controlled feeding cycle, smallest industrial unit at only 10x10m space requirement.
No body has done that. Only Enerbon did!

Unique Value for Money Point 5
Operational support and backup for operators to create highest performance with remote operation support.
No body has done that. Only Enerbon did!

Unique Value for Money Point 6
Durable, Reliable Industrial Design and Materials according to Safety Standards for 20+ years operation.
No body can promise that. Only Enerbon can!

Unique Value for Money Point 7
AND … if you are afraid that backup support and after-sales would stop and leave you to grope in the dark, we can even operate it for YOU as an option.
No body can do that. Only Enerbon makes it an option that you can take!

Now, point 1 is most important as you can easy calculate the diesel cost per year to be replaced, i.e. 65 PHP including transport to remote location and storage = 4,550,000 PHP / Year

Pay Back Period of about 3-5 years depending on complexity and output.

Barangay Power Plant Project


1

Compact, easy to operate, small footprint, sustainable,  manageable, highest energy generation efficiency in the world at 95% to 97% energy conversion, new and leading technology,  two weeks installation, easily duplicated, car like regular maintenance (engine oil change) only, 20 to 25 years lifespan, state-of-the-art instrumentation, low cost complete industrial type micro power plant at PhP1.67 per KW generation cost if organic waste bought at PhP1.00/kg to create community livelihood (zero fuel cost if a community can collect 1000kg of any organic refuse/garbage/ waste that could be market waste/animal manure/human sewage/agro-waste/slaughter house waste/food left-overs/napier grass planted on 3 hectares of land), 24/7 power generation on a single fuel feed per day, each unit comes with performance guarantee. German designed and engineered.

RELIABLE MICRO PROJECT AND ITS DUPLICATION- it is the most realistic approach to clean energy development in the Philippines.  We all talk of grand and expensive ways to produce energy from waste. Fuel sustainability and waste management will always be a problem.  Not anymore- small but many is the solution. We only need the right technology.

The Philippines is so blessed with so much organic growth and organic waste.  Grass, animal manure, human sewage,   rotting organic market waste, slaughter house refuse,  food left-over, green trimmings and field agro waste can give us power, one barangay at a time, until all barangay have their own power plant. Farms can have their own power and clean water discharge from this technology, too.

Project investment will get you a patented and well designed system that is globally proven and accepted, properly engineered, manufactured according to international safety and quality control standards.  It comes with state-of-the-art biogas technology instrumentation and control to assure operational excellence. Backyard designed biogas system can be a ticking time bomb, a methane venting system to the atmosphere, or just a giant waste water treatment plant that will stink and stop on load saturation. We boast of a 95% to 97% organic fuel energy conversion with our biogas system, the highest in the industry. We do not buy a Benz or a BMW car just to lose them for a short time of usage, or trouble ourselves with so much breakdown maintenance, or endanger our life on the road. Just like a biogas power plant, we buy premium solutions because we wanted them for the long run. For the long haul. And for safety. There will never be a comparison. There will be no regrets. That is what we offer.

This project can be funded in so many ways.  The Barangay who wanted it must initiate a project proposal for funding allotment or grants.  There are so many justifications involve: climate change mitigation, remote power generation, livelihood creation, waste management, sustainable Barangay income, etc., etc..  They must have the tenacity to source out possible funding to benefit their constituents.  Most important- Barangay leaders must have a vision for long term development and must not consider this Barangay Power Plant their own “milking cow” or “pot-of-gold.”  This is long term service for a community, 20 to 25 years of power generation, so it is beyond any political term of the one who started it.  It will be his grand and worthy legacy though for all time.  If a Barangay can go beyond their usual “our-budget-is-limited” or “we-don’t-have-the–money” way of thinking, they will find the following funding avenues worth checking and submitting a proposal to:

–           Line Special Project Budget Allotment or Grant from the Provincial or National Government

–           Foreign grants to support climate change mitigation endeavors in developing countries.

–           Barangay residents who lived abroad and who may have an association wanting to do a project.

–           Any existing ADB or WB Renewable Energy funding to benefit the Barangay.  It is not big so it may be easy.

–           Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) funds of large companies, especially those located in your place, provided their logo or brand is painted on the power plant itself.

–           A wealthy Barangay resident who may want to do it on a Build-Operate-Transfer agreement.

–           Any government agencies with funds for the development and care of the environment, agriculture, LGU, poverty index, remote community leverage, etc. etc…

–           PDAF? DAP? Whatever will happen to it would only mean more visual local projects that people wanted to see and hear for years to come.  Not just on the term of the incumbent Barangay Captain.   This project is one perfect example.

Funding for such projects would tend to go direct and with extreme transparency. It will create so much good for the general welfare but less SOP money.  Corruption destroys. Service uplifts.  Having your own Barangay Power Plant will be a new beginning.

It will be worth it.

Barangay Disaster-Ready Power Generation Project


1

When the power line snapped, the distribution post toppled, genset fuel totally consumed, bridges failed, and the community is totally isolated, the Barangay power plant will continue to give power through fresh greens and organic waste.

Besides giving community livelihood, sustainable income, and community waste management, it is also typhoon proof.  It may be the only standing power source.  Industrial by design, it will be an important “the-next-day-after” power support for a small community.  It is indeed a perfect power plant for a 7000+ island nation.

This project can be funded in so many ways.  The Barangay who wanted it must initiate a project proposal for funding allotment or grants.  There are so many justifications involve: climate change mitigation, remote power generation, livelihood creation, waste management, sustainable Barangay income, etc., etc..  They must have the tenacity to source out possible funding to benefit their constituents.  The project is long term, 20 to 25 years of power generation, so it is beyond the political term of the one who started it.  It will be his grand and worthy legacy though for all time.  If a Barangay can go beyond their usual “our-budget-is-limited” or “we-don’t-have-the–money” way of thinking, they will find the following funding avenues worth checking and submitting a proposal to:

–           Any government agencies with funds for the development and care of the environment, agriculture, LGU, poverty index, remote community leverage, etc. etc…

–           PDAF? DAP? Whatever will happen to it would only mean more visual local projects that people wanted to see and hear for years to come.  Not just on the term of the incumbent Barangay Captain.   This project is one perfect example.

Funding for such projects would tend to go direct and with extreme transparency. It will create so much good for the general welfare but less SOP money.  Corruption destroys. Service uplifts.  Having your own Barangay Power Plant will be a new beginning.

Helping the Poor.

I am currently for hire to do a highly profitable triple bottom-line business to raise the lives of the rural poor. It is a grass-root technology driven business to usher decentralized progress. It will generate power, create jobs, develop local industry, mitigate climate change, and empower a local community- all at the same time.

Simply put, I am looking for a willing employer that I can give more business by helping others.
