December 21, 2016, Altavas, Aklan, Philippines - A farmer wash his face by the waterfall on top of Eando mountain where the FAO Water Impounding Project was installed in Altavas, Aklan. Around 130 households in Altavas now benifits from the new water system that help the community easy access to water for their basic demand at home and agricultural needs. The water impounding project is part of FAOs larger effort to improve food and nutrition security in Western Visayas. The reservoir is designed to collect water from the rain, as well as from Gando Falls. It will be equipped with pipes that connect to more than 300 households in barangays Lupo and Catmon. Aside from providing water for drinking and other domestic needs, the water impounding system will also be used to irrigate farms. It will also provide water access to two public elementary schools, which will benefit more than 150 children aged 12 and below.
