According to ADB website, 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 will also assess the suitability of establishing a partnership between the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and MWSS through a multitranche financing facility (MFF). Management approval will be sought once the government requests for an MFF.
This project is associated to a proposed ADB project: Metro Manila Wastewater Improvement Project (ADB-48173-003).

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
