Strengthening mutual accountability in partnerships for WASH. Pt 1: Literature review and learning from other sectors

The Sanitation and Water for All (SWA) partnership commissioned a two-part research report to inform the evolution and refinement of its Mutual Accountability Mechanism (MAM), a tool for partners to hold each other accountable for progress in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This first part looks at the concept of mutual accountability, as well as a literature review, interviews and investigation of partnerships beyond the WASH sector, whereas the second part is an empirical study of multi-stakeholder collaboration, accountability, MAM implementation and COVID-impacts in WASH in six selected SWA partner countries

The desk research in part 1 highlights the key elements, success factors, partnership processes, conducive national contexts and types of global partnerships, which can support an effective cycle of mutual accountability between stakeholders.

Abstract

The Sanitation and Water for All (SWA) partnership commissioned a two-part research report to inform the evolution and refinement of its Mutual Accountability Mechanism (MAM), a tool for partners to hold each other accountable for progress in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This first part looks at the concept of mutual accountability, as well as a literature review, interviews and investigation of partnerships beyond the WASH sector, whereas the second part is an empirical study of multi-stakeholder collaboration, accountability, MAM implementation and COVID-impacts in WASH in six selected SWA partner countries

The desk research in part 1 highlights the key elements, success factors, partnership processes, conducive national contexts and types of global partnerships, which can support an effective cycle of mutual accountability between stakeholders.
