This is the fourth deliverable of the research project civil society’s monitoring of the NWRS2. It documents guidelines that are drawn out of the rich history of the South African Water Caucus and the experiences of the South African Water Caucus members on the Changing Practice course while doing their Change Projects. the guidelines were presented back to the participants of the Changing Practice course and circulated to South African Water Caucus members for comment.

The document highlights how the guidelines were put together in the introduction as follows:

‘Deliverable 4 draws together insights gained so far to create a first draft of the Guidelines that are intended to help citizens – and those that work with citizens – in the citizens’ monitoring of the NWRS2. The guidelines follow on and draw on work done earlier in this project. These guidelines are draft in that they are likely to be modified in the light of learnings in the rest of the project. The guidelines in final form will be part of the final report. If warranted, additional money will be raised to layout and print the guidelines in a handy, accessible form for civil society and their allies.
