WASH organizations with independent evaluations

Editor’s Note: This guest post was authored by Susan Davis. Susan is the executive director of Improve International, an organization focused on promoting and facilitating independent evaluations of WASH programs to help the sector improve. She has more than 13 years of experience in international development and has evaluated WASH and other programs in 15 developing countries. A version of this post originally appeared here.

A couple of months ago, we published a blog at Improve International on assembling a list of WASH organizations with independent evaluations. We are working with WASHfunders to incorporate this information into WASHfunders.org, but in the meantime, based on popular demand, we’re sharing the list of organizations with independent evaluations (out of the approximately 550 WASH organizations identified). We understand this list is not complete or comprehensive. Rather, it is a list of evaluations that we assembled using the tools that a regular donor would have — web searches and word of mouth.

Has your organization recently conducted an independent evaluation? Would you like to tell us about it or to be included in this list? Send an e-mail to  sdavis@improveinternational.org or  WASHfunders@foundationcenter.org with a link to the report.
