2.4 Social Sector A. Demography The Municipality of Malay has a total population of 52,973 based on the 2015 Census of Population. By 2018 This is mainly due to the fact that with Boracay’s flourishing tourism industry, employees from all over the the start of the planning period, the population of Malay across all barangays using the time-series regression country are attracted to work in the Island. Furthermore, live births were recorded at 17 live births per 1,000 method is 54,867. By 2050, the population of the municipality will be 115,417. Table 2.7 shows the projected population, hence the projected population should only be 20,566 (CLUP, 2013-2022). However, the actual population of Malay. census survey resulted at 7,803 higher than projected. Thus, it can be considered that the difference of the two values (7,803) can be a result of in-migration. Based from current trends, Boracay Island has a faster population growth rate than Mainland Malay, which was evident throughout the population history of the Municipality per barangay. 61% of the Municipality’s population is in Boracay Island, resulting in a population density of 32 people per hectare. Boracay Island’s population density is eight (8) times higher than the population density in mainland, having only 4 residents per hectare.

Enterprise Zone Authority (TIEZA), completed a submarine water pipeline along the Caticlan-Boracay channel to meet the growing demand for potable water in Boracay. The kilometer-long 400-mm pipeline built at a cost AKELCO operates substations in Andagao, Kalibo (2-10 MVA), Nabas (5 MVA), Lezo (5 MVA), Altavas (5 of Php 126 million augments the 13-year old 250-mm pipeline currently supplying water to Boracay from the MVA), Caticlan 910 MVA), and Boracay Island (30 MVA). The new substation in Boracay addresses problems mainland. in electricity and the ever-increasing power demand in the island. AKELCO provides electricity supply by using a submarine cable from Caticlan and is distributed using overhead cables. Additional measures are needed to protect and ensure the sustainability of the Nabaoy River in Aklan, the major source of Boracay’s tap water. The Nabaoy River, which is located southwest from the Boracay airport, is situated in a forest reserve. The BIWC also operates a water treatment plant at Caticlan that sources water from the Nabaoy River. Other water providers operating in Malay are the Boracay Tubi Systems Inc. and the Malay Water District (MWD). Boracay Tubi began operating in 1999 primarily to provide water and wastewater discharge services on the golf course operations of Fairways and Bluewater which is under Fil-Estate Properties. Some resorts and residents later on opted to become concessionaires of the water company. The MWD on the other hand, sources its water from Nabaoy River and supplies water to barangays situated in mainland Malay. Figure 2.59 Aklan Electric Cooperative, Inc Renewable Energy Resources In 2016, PetroWind Energy Inc. (PWEI) operated its wind farm in Nabas, Aklan supplying 36 MW of energy from 18 units of wind turbine generators (WTG). The energy generated is transmitted into the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) line through overhead 69-kV transmission lines. A tourism center, as well, was inaugurated to spur tourism and add livelihood in the area.

On the other hand, eight (8) barangays are moderately susceptible to landslides, namely Kabulihan, Nabaoy, Napaan, Yapak, Naasug, Balusbos, Dumlog and Poblacion. Some areas of barangays Napaan, Dumlog, and Poblacion have been reported to be highly susceptible to landslides. Conversely, there are three (3) barangays that have low susceptibility to landslides, namely Barangay Sambiray, Cogon, and Yapak. 64 Municipality of Malay Malay Master Plan for Tourism

Storm Surge The Municipality of Malay is classified as a coastal town with twelve (12) coastal barangays. Because of this, it is understandably vulnerable to storm surge as shown in the Storm Surge Hazard Map. The twelve coastal barangays are Argao, Balabag, Balusbos, Caticlan, Cubay Norte, Cubay Sur, Manoc-manoc, Motag, Naasug, Poblacion, Sambiray, and Yapak. Of these twelve coastal barangays however, it should be noted that Barangay Naasug has a low vulnerability to storm surge. The re ason for this is its geographical location as it is located in high and gently sloping areas with a shoreline. Table 23 shows the barangay populations that face the risks.
