The 2030 WRG Strategy


2021 report

This forward-looking evaluation has sought to provide concrete recommendations to enhance the program strategy and tactics to better deliver on the SDGs and tackle water resource challenges in a post-2020 world. The review combined a standard evaluation approach with a participatory peer-learning process, involving 12 of the 14 multi-stakeholder platforms (MSPs) of the 2030 WRG portfolio. A two-pronged analytical framework, focused on the relevance and effectiveness of the program, guided data collection and analysis at both macro and MSP levels.

2014 report

In 2014, the 2030 WRG undertook its first evaluation to reflect on its relevance, determine its performance against expectations, and capture its efficiency, effectiveness, impact, and sustainability. This evaluation was based on a desk review, three country visits, and close to 60 interviews with a diverse group of stakeholders and experts including 2030 WRG staff, Steering Board and Governing Council members, sector experts, and representatives from the public sector, private sector, and civil society. Some of the concrete conclusions and recommendations were immediately addressed and incorporated in the new Strategic Plan and Budget.

Strategic Plan

Other conclusions and recommendations were more briefly addressed in the Strategic Plan and Budget, where the 2030 WRG committed to continue to develop those aspects of our work in the near future. Many of those recommendations focused on the need for the 2030 WRG to develop effective partnerships with various actors – private sector, international organizations, and civil society – at the global and local levels. We find this a very important aspect of our work. Particularly since we ourselves are one such partnership, working with other partners should be one of our strengths and core elements.

Recommendations include:

  • The development of a Theory of Change
  • Structured approach for stakeholder mapping and engagement
  • Partnerships with other international organizations
  • Working with our global partners in the countries in which we work
  • Involvement of civil society in the governance of the 2030 WRG
  • Strengthening of fundraising capabilities and attracting more private sector actors
