Luyang Watershed is one of the important watersheds in the Province of Cebu because of its ecological and economic significance. Currently, there are existing and proposed development initiatives within the catchment and in order to ensure sustainable development of this area, there is a need to generate information on areas vulnerable to natural and man-made hazards as inputs to the watershed management plan.

Although on a global scale soil loss is unlikely to be a major threat to food security, the impacts are probably going to be felt at the local and regional levels where farmers are too poor to overcome the damage.

Soil erosion is one of the most threatening environmental problems plaguing upland watersheds of the country. A way to address this problem, according to experts, is to know beforehand when the soil erodes. This means predicting soil loss and sediment yield. The procedures for doing such would aid planners in developing soil conservation measures, reservoir sedimentation studies, and reservoir design.

This is possible through the Water Erosion Prediction Project (WEPP) model, whose applicability in the Philippines has been tested and demonstrated.

The model was developed by the National Soil Erosion Research Laboratory of the Agricultural Service, United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Forest Service of the Bureau of Land Management, 10 universities in the US, and many international scientists.
