The Water, Peace and Security partnership is a collaboration among an expanding group of organisations supported by The Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Current partners include: IHE Delft (lead), World Resources Institute, Deltares, The Hague Centre for Strategic Studies, Wetlands International, International Alert, Oregon State University, and Pacific Institute.
This Partnership aims to develop innovative tools and services to support local and international actors in the timely identification, analysis and reduction of the risks of water-related conflicts.
Commissioned by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Rens de Man and Karsten Schipperheijn of P2 carried out an evaluation of the progress and the first results of the Partnership. The evaluation consisted of a desktop analysis and a participatory workshop to trace the joint vision and experience of the results achieved.
Subsequently, a series of one-on-one interviews with experts and involved parties provided in-depth insight into the effectiveness, cooperation and results of the initiative. The evaluation resulted in recommendations for a financially healthy and robust collaboration of this promising initiative.
