CD Symposium
Developing Capacity from Rio to Reality: Who's Taking the Lead?

Joint Sector Monitoring, a Tool for Capacity Development?

In order to provide Water and Sanitation services for all, forever, sector stakeholders need to work together to analyse projects, reflect, design and implement adaptations for improvement

There is a clear need to strengthen continuous collaborative monitoring processes and ensure that these contribute to the capacities of sector players to learn, adapt and innovate. This session will present several country cases and consolidate lessons from multi-stakeholder sector monitoring processes. The drive towards aid effectiveness has sparked additional efforts to improve monitoring and evaluation as a means to increase accountability and effectiveness. This drive moves beyond the focus on information needs of donor agencies and central governments and focuses on the enhancement of local stakeholders’ capacity to make their own evaluations or to take corrective actions. Decentralisation processes pose new human and financial resource challenges related to service provision and monitoring.
