Step 1.02 , Situation Analysis
The purpose of a Situation Analysis is to: (a) assess the feasibility of a Water Fund (by more deeply understanding the situation); and (b) generally determine how a Water Fund could positively contribute to water security within a defined area/region.
The Situation Analysis is an assessment that explores the local context further and determines if a Water Fund is the right tool for addressing known water security issues. Learn more below.
How do I know if I'm ready to begin the Feasibility Situation Analysis?If a 'Go Decision' was made under the Eligibility Screening, you should proceed to conduct a Situation Analysis.
How does the Feasibility Situation Analysis differ from an Eligibility Screening?The Feasibility Situation Analysis provides a more detailed review of available information needed to assess the feasibility of developing a Water Fund and if it is the right tool to help address identified water security issues.
What does this report contain?The report contains details on water resources, relevant regional context, and a thorough water security situation analysis. These contents are accompanied by supporting maps and figures along with an initial stakeholder inventory and evaluation, all aimed at building greater understanding of the challenges and opportunities for a Water Fund to help improve water security in the region.
This report is a living documentThe Situation Analysis Report will need to be updated again in the Design Phase, prior to initiating strategic planning. This report is intended to document the current situation and be periodically updated to help inform decision-making processes.
