Nepal Joint Sector Reviews

Formal, participatory review cycles such as Joint Sector Reviews (JSR) are one of the building blocks of an effective WASH sector.

4 Apr 2017

A Joint Sector Review (JSR) process was established in Nepal in 2011 to assess sector performance and policy constraints, and to promote the concept of a sector-wide approach in the WASH sector. In May 2016 WaterAid – in consultation with the Sector Efficiency Improvement Unit (SEIU) – supported a study of sector review processes in Nepal.

Interviews were conducted with key stakeholders across Government, development partners and civil society to gather feedback on the strengths and weaknesses of current sector review processes, and identify opportunities for their evolution. The study aims to contribute to efforts to refresh and strengthen the JSR, and to ensure the future evolution of Nepal’s sector review processes builds on existing foundations to further catalyse long-term sector performance and sustainability.
