This concept paper provides a methodological approach for the assessment of Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit’s International Water Stewardship Programme (IWaSP) and its partnerships. IWaSP promotes partnerships between the private sector, the public sector, and society to tackle shared water risks and to manage water equitably to meet competing demands.

This evaluative assessment describes the generic approach of the assessment, the cycle for the assessment of partnerships, the country coordination and IWaSP itself.

The overall goal of the assessment is to provide evidence for taxpayers in the donor countries and for citizens in the partnership countries. It also aims to examine the relevance of the programme’s approach and its underlying assumptions, review stakeholder interest, and guide the future implementation of the programme.
