Focus lies on the improvement of local public services in the Moldovan priority sectors:
i) water supply and sanitation,

MLPS' advisory and support services therefore have to cover a broad range of different topics and have to be delivered in a flexible, demand-driven and needs-based way according to the Moldovan priorities. Promoting good governance is a main objective and principle in all advisory and support services.
