This chapter discusses the results of a review of accountability mechanisms for holding governments accountable to achieving the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6 on clean water and sanitation in 25 countries. The data was collected and validated involving more than 1000 people from governmental and non-state organisations. This chapter summarizes the findings from country reports focusing on examples from the Asian countries.
The study provides insights on the limited existing in-country accountability mechanisms and their functioning, resulting in evidence for Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and governments to find more effective ways to hold service providers accountable for reaching SDG 6 targets. The study concludes with a summary of what is currently working well and what needs to be urgently addressed for meaningful reporting on implementation and progress towards SDG 6 targets.
