The Social Contract Center (SCC) issued a report titled "Governance Assessment in Water and Sanitarian Sector in Fayoum Governorate". The report is prepared by MS. Mona Salem at SCC and is one of a series of reports that were prepared by SCC to assess governance in three public service sectors: Basic Education, Primary Healthcare and Water and Sanitarian.
The report presented the level of governance in the Water and Sanitarian sector, through indicators that measure each of the nine principles of good governance: effectiveness, efficiency, transparency, participation, responsiveness, and justice, rule of law, corruption, combating, and accountability. The purpose of the report was to identify problems faced by the sector and suggest solutions for them in order to improve its performance in the area of governance and consequently improve service provision. Governorate of Fayoum recorded 55.9 degree out of 100 in water sector governance ( moderate ) against a low degree in sanitarian sector governance, 34.9 out of 100 ( weak).
Recommendations introduced by the report included providing authorities of this sector with mechanisms geared towards maximizing transparency, enhance communication with service beneficiaries and increase citizen's participation by depending on civil society for raising citizens' awareness on their right to participate, and to increase the level of citizen satisfaction through improving quality of drinking water by increasing financial appropriations, replacing damaged and obsolete drinking water networks and installing filters for purifying water.
