Strengthening Economic Regulation to Enhance Water Service Delivery Performance



This study reviewed the Philippines’ current regulatory framework and practices that have an impact on investment flows and the performance of water service providers (WSPs) and was designed to facilitate the development of a framework for light-handed regulation (LHR) and the adjustment of the existing tariff-setting methodology of the National Water Resources Board to cater to the unregulated WSPs.

This study categorized WSPs nationwide, formulated a framework for LHR and put forward policy recommendations and implementation guidelines for consideration of the National Water Resources Board.
