This project built on a previous cooperation with WaterAid on the inclusion of the water sectors in PRSPs in sub-Saharan Africa.
The PPA-funded project had two major components. In the first part of the PPA, ODI carried out an audit for WaterAid on the involvement of WaterAid Country Programmes in PRSPs. This part was predominantly funded by WaterAid. The intention was to provide an overview of the engagement of WaterAid in PRSP processes in country, which also gave ODI the opportunity to improve its understanding of how WaterAid works as an organisation. The overview led to a number of examples where WaterAid Country Programmes and their local partner organisations use research-based evidence to influence national and local decision-making processes.
