Philippines: Urban Water Supply and Sanitation Project

Sovereign Project | 42363-012

Summary

The impact of the TA will be improved access to water supply and sanitation services in

selected urban areas by 2022. Service coverage providing access to continuous water supply at

minimal pressure will increase from 50% of the population to 80%, while the coverage of access

to hygienic sanitation will increase from 10% of the population to 50%. The outcome of the TA

will be an agreed design for an MFF by March 2012.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Although water is abundantly available in the Philippines, urban areas face water stress.5
Especially during the dry season, urbanization has brought a mismatch between water demand
and supply caused by (i) increased population and demand and (ii) environmental pollution and
diminished supply. This mismatch caused a water crisis in Metro Manila in the early 1990s, resulting in the
privatization of the WSS services.6 Several other urban areas in the Philippines face the same
problems. Notably, two main economic centers, Metro Cebu in the Visayas and Davao City in
Mindanao, will experience a water crisis by 2015, while growing populations and the lack of
incentives to invest in sanitation makes a sanitation crisis in these cities imminent.
Impact An increased number of Metro Cebu's urban population has access to continuous safe water supply.
