Final evaluation of project: support to enhanced cooperation in sustainable transboundary water management in the Mekong Basin
The main objectives of this evaluation are to provide the relevant services of the European Union, the
interested stakeholders with:
- an overall independent assessment of the performance of the “Support to enhanced cooperation in sustainable transboundary water management in the Mekong Basin”, paying particular attention to its different levels of results measured against its expected objectives and the reasons underpinning such results;
- key lessons learned, conclusions and related recommendations in order to improve future interventions (this will include the presentation of options for potential future follow-up intervention(s)).
This evaluation will feed into the EU’s assessment of its engagement in the Mekong sub-region as well as potential follow-up intervention(s) that could possibly be financed under the Regional Multi-annual
Indicative Programme for Asia and the Pacific 2021-2027 (subject to the availability of funds). On this basis, the evaluation should be forward-looking and take into account the EU’s bilateral cooperation with the countries of the Mekong, other relevant EU regional projects and programmes (for e.g. on forestry, wildlife, safe food systems), and potential for a Team Europe Initiative stemming from possible synergies with EU Member States’ relevant support (as the case may be).
