An Evaluation of Proposed World Water Programme Indicators for Use in South Africa

"The World Water Assessment Programme (WWAP), in its 2003 inaugural report, published a list of proposed indicators for participating countries to consider for monitoring and reporting within 11 priority themes. Since these indicators will require evaluation and testing in terms of their relevance and practicality, the WWAP has embarked on a phase of developing and evaluating indicators. The present study forms part of this evaluation phase and makes use of South Africa as an African Continent case study to assess and provide feedback on the proposed WWAP indicators. The main objective of the study is to evaluate the proposed WWAP indicators in terms of their relevance and practicality to South Africa."
