This report outlines the results of an evaluation of three projects on transboundary water management in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, covering the period 2013–2016. This evaluation was an independent assessment of the effectiveness, relevance, sustainability and highlights lessons learnt from the interventions of the three Sida-funded partner project: • Global Water Partnership Mediterranean Regional Water Partnership (GWP-Med) – ‘Overcoming Governance Challenges to the Mobilization of Financing for the Mediterranean Water Sector’ • The Regional Environmental Center for Central and Eastern Europe (REC) – ‘Sustainable Use of Transboundary Water Resources and Water Security Management’ • Strategic Foresight Group (SFG) – ‘Experience Exchange for Regional Water Cooperation in the Middle East’. The primary purpose of the evaluation was to assess the project approaches for building cooperation on transboundary natural resources management and improving water management and to serve as support the design of potential future Sida support. The secondary purpose of the evaluation was to provide cross-learning between the three projects by comparing lessons learned and highlighting critical factors for successful change processes for the benefit of the implementing partners and Sida.
