Quick-scan of socially inclusive integrated water resources management

This document presents the results of a quick-scan study conducted by IRC on behalf of the Inclusive Green Growth (IGG) department in the Directorate for International Development Cooperation (DGIS), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) of the Netherlands.

The main objective of the quick-scan is to complement the findings of the mapping study on socially inclusive WASH programming conducted by the Watershed partners (2018) with insights into the current practices relating to social inclusion in integrated water resources management (IWRM) programmes and projects.

The results of this study, together with those of the mapping study on socially inclusive WASH programming, constitute an important basis for the promotion of improved socially inclusive programme development and implementation of IGG's (supported) programmes and projects. The results of the quick-scan are also expected to stimulate the strengthening of IGG's policy framework for water resources management particularly regarding the formulation of policy goals and target setting for social inclusion.

This working document also offers a resource document for other water resources professionals with an interest in translating organisational social inclusion policies and strategies into the implementation of IWRM programmes that effectively contribute to reaching the poorest and most marginalised groups.

Abstract

This document presents the results of a quick-scan study conducted by IRC on behalf of the Inclusive Green Growth (IGG) department in the Directorate for International Development Cooperation (DGIS), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) of the Netherlands.

The main objective of the quick-scan is to complement the findings of the mapping study on socially inclusive WASH programming conducted by the Watershed partners (2018) with insights into the current practices relating to social inclusion in integrated water resources management (IWRM) programmes and projects.

The results of this study, together with those of the mapping study on socially inclusive WASH programming, constitute an important basis for the promotion of improved socially inclusive programme development and implementation of IGG's (supported) programmes and projects. The results of the quick-scan are also expected to stimulate the strengthening of IGG's policy framework for water resources management particularly regarding the formulation of policy goals and target setting for social inclusion.

This working document also offers a resource document for other water resources professionals with an interest in translating organisational social inclusion policies and strategies into the implementation of IWRM programmes that effectively contribute to reaching the poorest and most marginalised groups.
