Evaluation of South African Water Governance Project



LTS led a participatory evaluation of the UK Environment Agency/Department of Water Affairs (RSA) Watercourse project, which used innovative client-led methods to support stakeholder engagement for the development of new integrated water resource management institutions in South Africa. The evaluation took place over a period of three months and was undertaken with South African consultancy Pegasys. The main findings were that the novel approaches were an appropriate way to help fledgling organisations find their way in establishing their functions, but were more difficult in large bureaucracies where top down planning risked undermining bottom-up lead stakeholder processes.
