LOS ANGELES (Business Wire) -- AECOM Technology Corporation (NYSE: ACM), a leading provider of professional technical and management support services for public and private clients in more than 140 countries around the world, announced today that it has been awarded a US$18.7-million U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) contract to implement the Water Security for Resilient Economic Growth and Stability program, known as “Be Secure,” in the Philippines.

AECOM will partner with the government of the Philippines to promote good governance and build capacity in water security with the aim to achieve improved access to water services and more-resilient communities. AECOM will work to support local stakeholders, improve sustainable water supply, advance wastewater-treatment service delivery and increase resilience to climate-related water stress and hydrological extremes.

“We are excited to provide an innovative technical approach to help respond to urgent water-security challenges in the Philippines,” said AECOM Chairman and Chief Executive Officer John M. Dionisio. “We developed and tested this approach over the last 15 years implementing USAID-funded water services, climate change and environment projects in country.”

During the next four years, AECOM will implement the Be Secure project in partnership with WaterLinks, a Philippine non-profit that develops peer-to-peer partnerships between water services providers.
