Research was conducted by IRC WASH to document the implementation of the Institutional Strengthening Index (ISI) and assess its applicability in the future with a focus on the relevance and effectiveness of the ISI in measuring the strength of the enabling environment for sanitation at woreda level, also in comparison to other similar monitoring frameworks in use in the sector in Ethiopia and globally. One of the main recommendations of this study was to re-design and strengthen the Institutional Strengthening Index before considering scaling and institutionalization.

This document is a guidance on how the re-designed ISI can be scored, and what the ideal state would look like for each indicator as defined in government documents in WASH and market-based sanitation (MBS). This is to give directions for woreda-level actors about national/regional guidance and policy documents and help to take corrective action where needed.
