Water sector governance in Africa. Volume 2 'Assessment Guidelines'
  • African Development Bank (AfDB). November 2010
  • This report provides an overview and assessment of the state of water sector governance in Africa - looking at a very broad range of governance-related elements, including legislation and regulation, decentralization and devolution, sector-wide approaches, financial management, monitoring and evaluation, accountability and corruption as well as civil society participation, gender, alternative service provision, public-private partnerships and equitable service delivery. The study highlights current thinking and research on all these key elements and issues affecting their quality. It draws attention to the importance of financing overarching water management and governance functions, from strategy, planning and policymaking and engagement with sector stakeholders to water resource development, allocation and management. Volume 1 presents the findings, indicators and targets to be achieved while Volume 2 presents concrete assessment guidelines for conducting water sector governance assessments for programs and projects in Africa, based on the findings of Volume 1.
