NCPAG PJPA 2006-1-4: Enhancing corporate governance and reforms in the public sector

The efficient delivery of water has long eluded the Filipino people. This setback is in large part attributed to the administration of the public sector. Under the auspices of the government's Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System, the Philippine government registered one of the highest non-revenue water (NRW) rate in the Asian region. As an attempt to troubleshoot this problem, the government entered into a concessions agreement with two private companies. The privatization of water delivery in the Philippines is seen within the broad framework that water delivery in the Philippines is seen within the broad framework that water is a public good that has vital economic, social, and ecological roles to play, particularly in its impact of privatization on the pricing and availability of water. The performance of the MWSS as the monitoring agency and of the concessionaires is evaluated.
