Joint Sector Review

  • Public

The Joint Sector Reviews (JSR) are a forum for performance assessment, budget and policy guidance, allowing a broad spectrum of stakeholders to get an insight into, discuss and influence sector developments. It draws conclusions and makes recommendations on overall developments in the sector but is not a decision-making body. Any binding decisions during JSRs, such as formal undertakings for the forth-coming twelve months, are taken by the Water & Environment Sector Working Group. These reviews are usually held in September or October months. Joint Technical Reviews are held six months after the JSR to assess the progress made with regards to the sector's half year performance and to prepare the ground for the JSR for the two sub-sectors. Further to recommend actions which will lead to improved sector performance, and assess any other pertinent issues affecting the sector. It is a specific objective every year to review the progress in implementation of undertakings for the two sub-sectors.
