This report and recommendation of the president for the proposed Water Sector Improvement Program in Palau describes the terms and conditions for the approval of ADB's Management or Board of Directors. The program will establish the policy and legal framework to enable the provision of sustainable and efficient water and sewerage services by an independent, government-owned corporate entity. The government is expected to pass an act that would create the Palau Water and Sewer Corporation (PWSC). The act will empower the PWSC, through an independent board, to provide water and sewerage services throughout Palau and set tariffs for full cost recovery.
