In 2020, PEM completed an independent evaluation of the engagement in the water sector from 2010 to 2017 for the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation. The evaluation was carried out to the highest satisfaction of the Client:

“The evaluation report provides a timely and useful assessment of the activities the SDC undertakes in the water space. The main objectives – assessing the relevance, effectiveness and efficiency of the SDC engagement in the water sector - have been met by the evaluators. The SDC appreciates the comprehensiveness of the evaluation report and the sound analysis of key elements. The report’s analysis and resulting recommendations are considered to be relevant and useful for strengthening the strategic and operational orientation of SDC’s future water work.”
