    Abstract This study attempts to understand the complexities of the water and urban environmental situation in a highly urbanized area like Metro Manila, Philippines. This will input to the development of policy tools, databases and models to help improve the urban water environment in developing Asian cities. Metro Manila is a megacity with population exceeding 11.8 million people in 2010 spread over 17 local government units. As a highly urbanized area, Metro Manila experiences environmental problems often associated with urbanization such as air and water pollution, flooding, solid waste management problems and climate change. The complex governance structure of water and the environment combined with deteriorating water and environmental situation makes Metro Manila an ideal pilot area where future initiatives can be modeled.
