The WASHREG Approach is a multi-stakeholder diagnosis used to identify national regulation gaps and challenges in water and sanitation services provision. The methodology facilitates the development of a set of actions and practical solutions for initiating a process of developing, strengthening, or aligning regulatory roles and responsibilities.

This product is part of the set of guidance documents produced under the Accountability for Sustainability partnership, between UNICEF, SIWI and the UNDP-SIWI Water Governance Facility – which aims at increasing sustainability of WASH interventions through the improvement of governance in the service delivery framework.

The World Health Organization (WHO) and the Inter American Development Bank (IADB) have provided substantial inputs to the development of The WASHREG Approach: An Overview, the accompanying The WASHREG Approach: Methodology and these The WASHREG Approach: Action Sheets.
