This is a report on the Mid-Term Performance Evaluation of the Sustainable Water and Sanitation in Africa (SUWASA) project, funded by USAID in Washington, D.C. The project is being implemented by Tetra Tech ARD Inc., in nine countries: Ethiopia, Kenya, Liberia, Mozambique, Nigeria, Senegal, South Sudan, Uganda, and Zambia. Liberia was added after this evaluation started; therefore, it will not be part of this report. The project’s period of performance is September 30, 2009 to September 29, 2015.
According to the Statement of Work (SOW) for this assignment, the main goal of the evaluation was to provide USAID with an external assessment of SUWASA to date, its ability to integrate other complementary development activities, and its effectiveness at improving sector performance, measured by documented results and the perceptions of stakeholders. The evaluation was conducted on two levels with the purpose to assess: 1) the results and contribution of country-level sector reform activities; and 2) whether SUWASA is contributing to the knowledge base of the sector regionally and to USAID.
