Description of the Project:

The Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) has been  involved in supporting the water and sanitation sector in Central America for more than 30 years, in recent years concentrating on national “Aguasan” Programmes in Nicaragua and Honduras and on a “Regional Aguasan Programme” aimed at strengthening regional institutions, knowledge management and policy dialogue on sector issues of regional interest.

Skat was selected to conduct a mid-term review of the current phase 2008-2011 of all three Aguasan Programmes. Using an innovative methodology of “facilitated self-assessment”, Skat supported the project team in thoroughly analyzing key issues and formulating a set of recommendations that will guide the further development of the Programmes.
