Thematic Development Effectiveness Review on AfDB’s operations in Water in 2015

The Development Effectiveness Review series presents the contribution that the African Development Bank (AfDB) makes to Africa’s development. Agulhas was contracted by the AfDB to produce a Development Effectiveness Review (DER) that explores the Bank’s contribution to Africa’s water sector. The review in particular examined the progresses made in managing and utilising water in Africa and it tracked the performance of the Bank’s water sector portfolio against the targets set out in its Results Measurement Framework. The review also assessed the management of the AfDB water sector portfolio and the progress made in strengthening the Bank’s capacity to deliver its mandate.
