Mid-Term Review: Implementation of the Southern African Development Community Regional Strategic Action Plan on Integrated Water Resources Development and Management


OneWorld was contracted to carry out the Mid-Term Review (MTR) of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) Regional Strategic Action Plan (RSAP) IV on Integrated Water Resources Development and Management (IWRDM), 2016-2020.

The review had two key aspects: a systematic evaluation of progress made towards achieving operational objectives, and development of key recommendations to inform the subsequent iteration: RSAP V (2020-2024). The review centered around the application of a theory of change (ToC) based review, validated and verified through stakeholder engagement, desktop document review and a strategic institutional and governance assessment. Key stakeholders included member states, River Basin Organisations (RBOs), various SADC institutions, International Cooperating Partners  and implementing agencies.

Specific areas of assessment included: i) determining the implementation status of RSAP IV work programmes; ii) evaluating the progress made thus far; iii) analysing the environmental, financial and socio-economic sustainability of implemented activities; and iv) appraising various modes of project delivery.

OneWorld’s activities included:

  • Reviewing key regional and national policies and strategies, records of ministerial and committee meetings, and records of SADC regional water dialogues and RBO workshops.
  • Conducting interviews and focus group discussions with key stakeholders from the SADC region involved in implementing and/or developing RSAP IV.
  • Presenting and validating the findings and recommendations to the SADC Water Resources Technical Committee (WRTC) and Water Strategy Reference Group (WSRG).
