In September 2021, USAID/Haiti requested Haiti Evaluation and Survey Services (ESS) to design and implement the final performance evaluation of the USAID Water and Sanitation (WATSAN) project. The purpose of this evaluation is to determine the effectiveness of the project in achieving its objectives (USAID Water and Development progress indicators). The evaluation will assess the project’s design and approaches used in order to inform future USAID/Haiti programming similar in scope. The evaluation will consider factors related to partnerships, capacity building, and sustainability to measure whether WATSAN interventions have improved local utilities and local actors’ capacity to provide households and communities with sustainable, improved access to water and sanitation services and to what extent the interventions have contributed to improved institutional capacity in the sector. The primary stakeholders for this evaluation include USAID/Haiti, DAI (Development Alternatives, Inc.) and its partners (Ayiti Nexus, Centre de Formation et d’Encadrement Technique-CFET, Zanmi Lasante, V3, and mWater and the National Directorate of Potable Water and Sanitation-DINEPA),  the Government of Haiti (GOH), Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), Faith-based organizations (FBOs), private sector entities, and other donors and entities active in Haiti’s private sector (such as the Inter-American Development Bank-IADB, Spanish Aid and World Bank).
