This study took place between October 2017 and March 2018 and was led by civil society organisations (CSOs) in 25 countries under the umbrella of End Water Poverty, Watershed Consortium, Coalition Eau and the Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC). Organisations agreed to conduct an in-depth inclusive analysis on country-level accountability mechanisms towards Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG 6) on clean water and sanitation implementation and produce a comprehensive report, assessing their strengths, limitations and effectiveness.
The outcomes of this study include enhanced insights on the existing in-country mechanisms and their functioning for SDG 6, resulting in tools for CSOs to find more or better ways to hold their government accountable for reaching SDG6 targets and meaningful reporting on progress. It identifies positive experiences of participating in existing accountability mechanisms, as well as the greatest gaps and challenges currently observed in the functioning of accountability mechanisms, from the perspective of governments, civil society and other stakeholders.
The process and the results of the study therefore aim to strengthen CSOs' capacities to advocate for improved accountability mechanisms and their involvement in decision-making and follow-up actions.
