Final evaluation of Improved Drinking Water Supply for Kiritimati Island - Contribution agreement FED/2013/328-527

The main objective of this evaluation was to provide the relevant services of the European Union, the interested stakeholders and the wider population of Kiribati with:

·       An overall assessment of the WASH and water management policies assuming the absorption capacity of the new immigrants from outer islands;

·       An overall assessment of the institutional capacity to guarantee investment sustainability and ensure population could enjoy its right to free water in the long term (maintenance, metering, revenue collection...);

·       An overall assessment of the past performance of the Improved Drinking Water Supply for Kiritimati Island, paying particular attention to its results measured against its expected objectives;

·       The key lessons learned, conclusions and related recommendations in order to improve future actions in the water management sector

The evaluation will assess the project using the five standard   DAC evaluation criteria, namely: relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, sustainability and impact.  In  addition,  the  evaluation assessed  two  EU  specific evaluation criteria: i) the  EU  added  value (the  extent  to  which the project brought additional benefits  to  what would  have resulted from Member States' interventions only);ii) the coherence of the project itself, with the EU strategy in the Pacific and in the Republic of Kiribati, with  other  EU  policies  and  Member  State Actions and  other  donors mainly  New  Zealand,  Australia, World Bank, Asian Development Bank and Japan.
