Covering over a hundred AFD-funded projects of the irrigation sector interventions undertaken by the AFD between 1987 and 2017 in more than 20 countries, the aim of this evaluation exercise is to build on the operational lessons learned and inform strategic decision-making. The evaluation will take over a year to complete and involve using a wide range of tools to ensure the standard evaluation criteria (relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, impact and sustainability) are comprehensively considered. The aspects to be covered by the evaluation include: the quality of the infrastructure; social water management; land use issues; agricultural development; and the reform of public irrigation policy. Four case studies are to be carried out in countries where AFD’s interventions in the sector are considered to have been most representative; these include Senegal, Madagascar, and a country from both North Africa and South-East Asia.
Our team provides social project management expertise and support to help commission the water supply services installed under the GECEAU project.
