OPM carried out a formative evaluation of Tanzania’s Water Sector Development Programme (WSDP) for the Ministry of Water, funded by JICA. The overall objective of the assignment was to critically review the performance of Phase I of WSDP implementation (which began in 2007 and is due to end in June 2014), in which the government and donors have invested USD 1.3 billion. WSDP is founded on a sector-wide approach to planning (SWAp) which incorporates structures for joint government-development partner dialogue, and financing mechanisms include budget support administered via a basket fund. OPM provided an assessment of key areas that would require strengthening, and advised on the design of phase II of the Programme.
