JSR Final Agreed Minutes 2019

The Water and Environment Sector assesses its performance, sets priority actions (referred to as undertakings) and offers policy guidance through a forum called the Joint Sector Review (JSR).  This review is largely guided by the annual Sector Performance Report (SPR) where included are the achievements of annual targets for the key sector performance indicators, agreed actions and attainment of undertakings for the preceding year(s). The JSR, which is normally conducted under a pre-set theme and originating from key emerging sector issues, allows for different stakeholders within and from outside the sector to get an insight into, discuss, and influence sector developments. The JSR then draws conclusions and makes recommendations on the key issues in the sector, whereby binding decisions are formalised into key action areas or undertakings to be endorsed by the Water and Environment Sector Working Group (WESWG). These are implemented in the forth-coming year (s) with the aim of improvement of the overall sector’s performance. The JSR’s timing is in tandem with the next national budgeting cycle.
