This research study is Phase I of the Water Supply and Sanitation Performance Enhancement Project (WPEP), aims to produce a comprehensive situation analysis of all significant urban sewerage and sanitation policies and experiences in the Philippines since 1970. It identifies opportunities for case studies, field trials and policies. All of this against a background of a continuing problematic sewerage and sanitation sub-sector. Development of which has been hindered by poor planning, institutional constraints, lack of political will, and insufficient financial resources. All of these constraints led to environmental degradation as a consequence of substandard sanitation and the spread of disease.
