Upcoming Webinar: A Look Back at the USAID/India FIRE-D Project

Upcoming Webinar: Examining the sustainability of the USAID/India FIRE-D Project

NOTE: This event has ended but you can view the webinar recording.

How sustainable are outcomes several years after water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) projects have closed? In this webinar, Leslie Greene Hodel will present findings from an evaluation of the USAID/India Financial Institutions Reform and Expansion–Debt and Infrastructure (FIRE-D) project, implemented by TCG International between 1994 and 2011.

FIRE-D worked in partnership with the Government of India on new approaches to plan, design, and finance urban infrastructure. Seven years after the close of the project, the evaluation team used qualitative interviews and municipal water and sanitation access data to examine the sustainability of selected FIRE-D approaches to develop sustainable urban environmental services, ensure the poor have access to those services, and improve the ability of city and state governments to mobilize resources and increase their revenues.

Lessons from the evaluation are intended to inform activity design improvements in India and other urban water and sanitation contexts. Read the full evaluation.

The webinar will be held on Thursday, December 13 at 8 a.m. (EST). For more information and to register click the button below.
