Collection of good practices and lessons learned on target setting and reporting under the Protocol on Water and Health

Published: November 2016

The objective of the Collection of good practices and lessons learned on target setting and reporting under the Protocol on Water and Health is to provide concrete advice to countries planning to embark on the process of setting, revising or implementing targets, and reporting on the progress achieved in accordance with the Protocol.

In 2010, the Guidelines on the Setting of Targets, Evaluation of Progress and Reporting were published to assist Parties in addressing challenges related to setting targets and reviewing and assessing progress. While applying the Guidelines, countries accumulated ample experiences including stories and key elements that contributed to the success of the process, as well as areas where things could have been done differently. Recognizing the usefulness of this collective experience and the benefits from learning from and replicating good practices, the Task Force on Target Setting and Reporting under the Protocol decided to prepare the present publication.

The Collection represents a compilation of success stories, challenges and diverse approaches applied by Parties and other States working within the framework of the Protocol. It aims to complement the Guidelines for setting targets and reporting by focusing on the ways in which countries have implemented them in practice. It follows the logical framework laid out by the Guidelines, and covers each step of the process.
