Skat was asked by the SDC to do an internal evaluation of the cooperation between the World Bank’s Water and Sanitation Program (WSP) and the SDC for the period 2012 – 2015. Skat carried out in-country assessments in Pakistan, Haiti, Nicaragua, and desk studies of the cooperation between the two organisations in Bangladesh, Peru, Honduras, Niger, and Mozambique. The findings from the study were summarized in a report and presented at the SDC in order to inform the decision making process for a next phase of cooperation.

Description of the Project:
Skat is a long-standing partner of the SDC in various sectors, including water, where it is acting as a technical advisor and support services provider to the Global Programme Water (“Backstopping Mandate for Water”), among others. In this role Skat was asked by the SDC to conceptualize and implement an internal evaluation of the cooperation between the Water and Sanitation Program (WSP) and the SDC at country, regional and global levels. The objective of this evaluation was to draw lessons for improving this cooperation in the future and for guiding the negotiation process with the World Bank for a next phase of cooperation in view of the fact that the institutional set-up at the World Bank has changed with the creation of the Water Global Practice. In-country evaluations yielded deep insights into the cooperation between the two organisations and how it may be improved, whereas the desk studies allowed to gain a good overview of the situation in many different contexts.
