WGF Report 6 -Developing capacities for water integrity: Reflective review of approach and impact of training courses

Publisher: UNDP-SIWI Water Governance Facility

January 2017

The outline of the approach highlights lessons learned relating to the importance of appreciating and understanding the context and getting the right participants, along with the importance of follow-up activities and support to alumni. A major trend is the shift from a focus on individuals towards one of institutional change, focussing increasingly on organizational change processes.

The report builds on the authors’ extensive experience in organizing capacity development for water integrity, review of capacity development literature and two surveys; one among experts (partners) and one among previous course participants. In spite of a limited number of responses to the alumni survey, it showed that the knowledge gained has been shared, and that training activities have contributed towards instilling greater transparency or changes towards improved integrity in course participants’ organizations.
