  • Eliminate environmental degradation and ensure resource sustainability by development of new water /wastewater projects, and enhancing the management efficiency of such projects;
  • Empower the public by encouraging their participation in local water management through sharing information, capacity building, promoting conservation techniques and practices as well as promoting the protection of water resources;
  • Delineate gender aspects of water related issues through ensuring proper representation of women in different levels of water planning and management; and
  • Improve the technical and administrative performance of PHG to ensure its work sustainability.
