Evaluation of WRAPP Water and Sanitation Programme in Southern Sudan

The Water for Recovery and Peace Program (WRAPP) has been operating in Southern Sudan under PACT since 2005 with the aim to
  1. increase access to protected water supply and enhance awareness about sanitation and hygiene;
  2. enhance capacity for community management of water schemes;
  3. contribute to the reduction of conflict and the promotion of stability and peace; and
  4. be gender and environmentally sensitive. The main funding agency of WRAPP is USAID/OFDA.

in 2007 WRAPP had reached an estimated 1,4 million beneficiaries through the implementation and rehabilitation of rural water supply, small urban water distribution and rainwater harvesting schemes.

The purpose of the evaluation was to assess the WRAPP approach in terms of its appropriateness, effectiveness and sustainability.

The evaluation assessed to what extent the programme has met its objectives and achieved outcomes and impact with a focus on the soft aspects of the WRAPP approach. Based on the assesment of Pact, the evaluation also developed wider lessons for the water sector.

Key findings are centred around improved access to WSS services; enhanced capacity for community management; reduction of conflict and promotion of stability and peace; and livelihoods, gender and the environment.
