Nepal GSF Programme Evaluation & Response


WSSCC’s Global Sanitation Fund (GSF) Programme in Nepal is financed by WSSCC and implemented by UN Habitat Nepal.

This evaluation brief seeks to provide a summative and a formative forward-looking analysis of the Programme. The analysis is framed around the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s Development Assistance Committee (OECD DAC) evaluation criteria of relevance, efficiency, effectiveness, and sustainability. The methods and techniques of the evaluation have been customized to the specific evolution of the GSF-supported programme in view of the current stage of Nepal’s sanitation status. A mixed methods approach has been adopted focusing on the referencing and triangulation of quantitative data from a variety of programme and national documents, qualified through a series of primary sources.

WSSCC’s management response to this evaluation is also listed below.

Value for Money Study in Global Sanitation Fund Programmes – Synthesis Report

Global Sanitation Fund

With maturing programmes and results steadily growing, the GSF is not only interested in the real cost of reaching results, but also in deepening its understanding of resources invested by communities, governments, and other partners. This is critical in further developing a model for scaling up sanitation and hygiene. With these aspects in mind, a multi-country value for money study was commissioned by the GSF in 2015, and carried out by Oxford Policy Management. This synthesis report explores the methodology and findings from the study. Moreover, it provides recommendations on the methodology which the GSF can utilize to track better value for money aspects within supported programmes.

Following the devastating 2015 earthquake in Nepal, the Global Sanitation Fund (GSF)-supported programme and partners underwent a significant learning journey, which has helped revive sanitation in the country. This journey is illustrated in a learning report produced by UN-Habitat, the GSF Executing Agency in Nepal.
