International Institute of Aquaresponsible Municipalitiesfrançais

Work in progress

iiAm has recently developed an audit methodology to evaluate the level of aquaresponsibility of municipalities. For each of the 17 elements of aquaresponsibility a list of required information was defined, the indicators identified and a procedure developed on how to judge the level of aquaresponsibility for each indicator. On this basis the audit on aquaresponsibility of Quebec City was completed in 2011-2012. This pilot project enabled the validation of the approach and the verification of the applicability of the auditing procedure. IiAm has produced a guide on municipal water liability, which presents the various elements of aquaresponsibility and their indicators. Another project was carried out with the City of Val-d'Or. This project validated the approach with a municipality of medium size in the province of Quebec (approximately 25,000 inhabitants).
