Your Water, Your Choice

The short film "Your Water, Your Choice" aims to give audiences a better understanding of what climate impacts are to water, how it affects water security in the Philippines, and the need to take action. This educational and entertaining film promotes water conservation and water use efficiency. It shows specific and doable water efficiency actions that can be done at the local or household level, and the benefits that can be gained from doing so.

The video is produced and developed by the USAID Water Security for Resilient Economic Growth and Stability (Be Secure) Project, in collaboration with the Climate Change Commission (CCC), the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), and the Yes Pinoy Foundation. It stars Dingdong Dantes, Jerald Napoles, and Precious Leila Derlyn. Directed by Sheron Dayoc through Southern Lantern Studios.
