The Ministry of Water and Irrigation (MWI), the Swedish International Development Agency (Sida), the Danish International Development Agency (Danida) and the German Technical Cooperation (GTZ) undertook a joint mid-term evaluation of their support to the water sector through the Kenya Water and Sanitation Programme (KWSP) Programme, co funded by Sida, Danida and Government of Kenya and the Water Sector Reform Programme (WSRP), co funded by German and Government of Kenya. The evaluation found that support by the KWSP and WSRP has been instrumental in supporting the development of the new institutions in the sector, and in providing assistance in the development of tools needed to implement their respective mandates. The two programmes have implemented in line with their objectives and they have achieved most of their planned outputs. The finding is that given their current level of implementation, both WSRP and KWSP have a high likelihood of achieving their stated objectives and targets by the end of the plan period. In terms of implementation, both projects have provided technical assistance through flexible and responsive systems. Further evaluation after the completion of the programmes will verify actual improvements in water service levels for the intended beneficiaries.
