Philippines: Metro Manila Water and Sanitation Development Project

Sovereign Project | 48173-001

The proposed project loan will finance priority water and sanitation investments of Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) and will contribute to improving the living and health conditions in the National Capital Region (NCR), which accounts for 33% of the nation's GDP. The Project will also provide institutional capacity strengthening to MWSS, including for regulatory oversight, financial planning, and asset and water security management.

The proposed project preparatory technical assistance has two phases: Phase 1 (2015-2016) is the preparation of MWSS's investments program in the medium and long term while Phase 2 (2017-2018) is the preparation of a full feasibility study on the identified priority investments, namely the construction of Bigte-Novaliches Aqueduct 7 (BNAQ7). The changes in national administration following the presidential election in 2016 is the reason for the phasing of this TA.

The proposed project loan will finance priority water and sanitation investments of Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) and will contribute to improving the living and health conditions in the National Capital Region (NCR), which accounts for 33% of the nation's GDP. The Project will also provide institutional capacity strengthening to MWSS, including for regulatory oversight, financial planning, and asset and water security management.

The changes in national administration following the presidential election in 2016 is the reason for the phasing of this TA.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The provision of water supply and sanitation in the NCR is the responsibility of the MWSS. In 1997, MWSS granted concessions for water distribution and sewerage, a privatization that is generally considered successful; MWSS retained responsibility for bulk water supply.
