The Joint Sector Review (JSR) is a forum for performance assessment, setting of priority actions/undertakings and provision of policy guidance for the water and environment sector. The review is guided by an annual Sector Performance Report, and a pre-determined theme originating from emerging sector policy and/or strategic issues. The review allows a broad spectrum of stakeholders to get an insight into, discuss, and influence sector developments.
The JSR draws conclusions and makes recommendations on the overall key issues in the sector. Any binding decisions during JSRs, such as key actions or undertakings for the forthcoming twelve months or beyond, are subject to formal endorsement by the Water &Environment Sector Working Group.
The JSR critically examines the achievement of annual targets for the key sector performance indicators, agreed actions and attainment of undertakings for the previous year(s), and also formulates new undertakings to be implemented during the following year(s).
The JSR supports the Joint Budget Support Framework and its Joint Assessment Framework (JAF), which is the agreed Government of Uganda and Development Partners’ mechanism for constructive dialogue and agreements on provision of Budget Support. The review supports the JAF appraisal, which normally takes place in November.
