In the Philippines, water resource projects under Duterte’s flagship infrastructure program are being funded with foreign loans, half of which are from China. One of these is the Kaliwa Dam, which faces opposition from indigenous people and residents of affected areas in Rizal and Quezon provinces. The dam poses huge threats on the environment and the community.

March 14 is the International Day of Action for Rivers and against Large Dams.
