Chapter 1, Guidelines for governance assessment includes Governance assessments and the project cycle; and Key issues in water sector governance, with sub-sections on National level governance; Legal framework; Institutions; Sector management; Resources management; Transparency, accountability and corruption; Participation; and Equitable services provision. Chapter 2, Application of assessment templates, includes Light assessment of water sector governance; Rapid assessment of water sector governance; Governance assessment for project preparation and concept note; Governance assessment for project appraisal; Governance assessment for supervision during implementation; and Governance assessment at project completion. Chapter 3 explains how a follow-up action plan can be used to ensure that the guidelines and templates are used.
