d. strengthening of flood management capacities and coordination of concerned agencies (e.g., DPWH, LGUs);
e. full implementation and maintenance of flood management and all mitigation measures stipulated under the flood control master plans and studies for, major river basins;
f. establishment of a comprehensive database of all water-related data, including flood-related information; and
g. promotion of nature-based solutions, other than hard infrastructure (e.g., riparian buffer strips, restoration of natural floodplains and aquifer recharge).

Based on the Detailed Engineering Design (DED) completed in 2023, DPWH is now proceeding with the project implementation phase, for which the Project Implementation Consultant (PIC) will be required to assist the Client with the following three principal project output objectives.
