The aim of the Technical Assistance is to define secure, reliable, and affordable water supplies to communities on Babeldaob and Koror islands. The envisaged outcome will be a plan for the sustainable development of the national water supply system and improved reliability and security of the water supply to Koror. A water supply master plan and feasibility studies associated with proposed sub-projects, including preliminary designs, will also be prepared. The feasibility studies will provide the basis for a future infrastructure investment project.
