This report is an evaluation of water sector activities in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, funded by USAID’s Middle East Bureau.

The Middle East Bureau supports regional activities in water and environment to address long-term sustainable access to water in the region. The purpose of the evaluation is to provide lessons learned and recommendations for future programming in anticipation of limited funding scenarios. In particular, this evaluation will inform the following:

  1. Lessons learned from design and implementation of past programs, and considerations for future activities.
  2. Recommendations for three funding level scenarios: a. Annual program budget of $0–1 million b. Annual program budget of $1–3 million c. Annual program budget of $3–6 million
  3. Ways in which the Middle East Bureau can design programs to complement bilateral activities to increase development impact.
