ReWaB: Regional Water Governance Benchmarking -- Database Query

Welcome to the Document Database.The database contains policy and legal documents from our five focal countries. Documents are available in original form as well as indexed form. Original documents can be viewed as a complete list (document list), or searched by country and sector (document search).

Indexed documents have been assessed by a research team for elements of a good water governance framework. The framework is included as a cover sheet attached to each indexed document. Where these elements are present in a given document, an alpha-numeric index (tag) has been inserted in the relevant section of the document. Each index is hyperlinked between the framework element on the cover sheet, and the corresponding section within the document. Indexed documents can be searched by framework element, country and language, where relevant (tagged document search).
