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.
