WATER SUPPLY FOR POOR PROGRAM
Policy of Clean Water for the Poor
In contribution to implement the Government's Poverty Reduction Policy, PPWSA has made effort in serving the poor within city center and suburban areas of Phnom Penh with clean water under the policy "Clean Water for the Poor" since 1999.
To achieve this policy, PPWSA has set up 3 categories of installment payment: 10 months, 15 months and 20 months which can be chosen by the poor, based on their financial affordability. There is also a discount of 20% of connection fees for the poor who live in suburban communities.
In additional, PPWSA has applied subsidy policy for the poorest since May, 2005: 30%, 50%, 70% and 100% of the total connections fee based on the real poverty. An evaluation committee has been created and working closely with the local authority.
