This end-line evaluation of Watershed was commissioned by the Directorate-General for International Cooperation (DGIS) of The Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs to assess the programme’s relevance, effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability.
The evaluation concluded that Watershed’s rationale was unique and highly relevant in the intervention areas. The programme addressed two important systemic challenges underlying universal and sustainable access to clean water and sanitation – water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH)/integrated water resource management (IWRM) linkages and social inclusion – using an evidence-based lobby and advocacy (L&A) approach.
Overall, Watershed satisfactorily met the needs and priorities of contracted partners. The findings on the programme’s efficiency were mixed.
