2019 Somalia: Final Evaluation of SIDA-funded project “Improving Children’s Access to Water and Sanitation in Somalia”

Executive summary


UNICEF Somalia is conducting the end-line evaluation of its SIDA-supported WASH project, with the aim to be transparent and accountable on project results and to learn from performance in view of better implementing WASH projects in Somalia.


The evaluation will rely on a mixed (qualitative and quantitative) methodology and on a theory-based approach. Based on the theory of change analysis, the evaluation will collect data and trace causal mechanisms separately for a set of schools, clinics/health facilities, communities, and water sources that were supported by UNICEF (treatment group) and compare them with a set of similar schools, clinics, communities, and water sources (control group). 
The evaluation will rely on outcome harvesting (OH) and contribution analysis (CA) to explore causation. The application of OH complements the monitoring data already collected by UNICEF. Building on this, the evaluation will apply the Contribution Analysis to the change collected through outcome harvesting to add rigour to the assessment of the UNICEF’s contributions towards change.
