Mid-term Review of the Australian Water Partnership Phase 2

Summary of publication

DFAT commissioned an independent mid-term review of the Australian Water Partnership (AWP) Phase 2 in 2021. The purpose of the review was to support ongoing improvement in AWP Phase 2 and inform a decision on a prospective AWP Phase 3.

The review examined AWP Phase 2’s effectiveness, implementation approach, relevance, gender equality, disability, and social inclusion (GEDSI) and monitoring and evaluation (M&E) arrangements. Data collection involved document review, semi-structured interviews, observation of AWP training and webinars, a closer review of six AWP activities, and analysis of AWP’s activity database.

The review found AWP to be a generally high performing program with strong foundations that is well-placed for continued evolution and growth. The review identified several areas for improvement in Phase 2 and any subsequent phase.
