Universalia was contracted by the African Development Bank’s (AFDB) Independent Evaluation Department (IDEV) to conduct an evaluation of AWF entire portfolio since 2015, focusing on organizational and development effectiveness.
The African Water Facility (AWF) is an initiative of the African Ministers’ Council on Water (AMCOW), and is hosted and managed by the African Development Bank (AfDB). The AWF is a multilateral trust fund that provides grants and technical assistance to enable governments, NGOs and private-public partnerships to address the increasing investment need for the development and management of water resources in Africa.
The evaluation involves a desk-based portfolio of AWF’s projects, a desk-based policy and literature review, 9 case country-case studies, a synthesis report, and a presentation of the evaluation’s findings to AWF’s Board of Governors. The evaluation will provide recommendations and identify lessons learned in terms of AWF’s project approach, selection, design, management, delivery and results, and stakeholder engagement.
