Colombia: Public and Private Paths to Sustainable Water Supply and Sanitation in Colombia (1999-2011) (Project Performance Assessment Report)

PDF file
Water supply and sanitation in Colombia have improved in recent decades. Between 1990 and 2010, access to improved sanitation increased from 67 percent to 82 percent, and access to improved water sources increased from 89 percent to 94 percent (WHO/UNICEF 2010), but coverage in rural areas still lags behind. The three projects covered by this assessment—the Cartagena Water Supply, Sewerage, Show MoreWater supply and sanitation in Colombia have improved in recent decades. Between 1990 and 2010, access to improved sanitation increased from 67 percent to 82 percent, and access to improved water sources increased from 89 percent to 94 percent (WHO/UNICEF 2010), but coverage in rural areas still lags behind. The three projects covered by this assessment—the Cartagena Water Supply, Sewerage, and Environmental Management Project (the Cartagena Project); the Water Sector Reform Assistance Project (WSRAP); and the Water and Sanitation Sector Support Project (WSSSP)—are among the second generation of water supply and sanitation (WSS) projects that benefited from the lessons learned in the 1990s from Bank-supported WSS projects in Colombia. The overall project outcome, based on relevance, efficacy, and efficiency, is rated satisfactory. Relevance of the objectives and design are both rated substantial. Achievement of two objectives was rated high, and one was rated substantial, since all objectives were achieved or surpassed. Efficiency is rated substantial, and risks to development outcome are rated negligible, since ACUACAR had proven to be an efficient and sustainable mixed-enterprise (public-private) model that survived numerous shifts in political administrations. Both Bank and borrower performances are rated satisfactory.

The International Finance Corporation’s (IFC) mandate is to promote economic development by supporting the growth of productive private enterprise in its developing member countries--particularly in less developed and higher risk areas--in partnership with private sector clients.

IFC’s business model is to work with private sector clients as a means to achieve its mandate of economic development. In pursuing this mandate, its strategy has evolved and, from the early 2000s, IFC has aimed to transform itself from a transactions-focused to a client-centered institution. The rationale for this shift to a client focus was to improve IFC’s development outcomes. More than a decade after the emergence of IFC’s more strategic approach to client engagement, this evaluation will assess the extent to which IFC’s approach to strategic client engagement have been implemented, enhanced these clients’ project outcomes and helped IFC improve its own development impact. The purpose is to derive appropriate lessons from experience and inform future efforts to improve IFC’s approach to client engagement in given country and client contexts as a means to enhance its development impact. The report is expected to build on internal diagnostics regarding IFC’s business model, which began in March 2016, and would allow IFC to fine tune its strategy related to the client engagement approach. The evaluation is undertaken as part of the second objective of IEG’s results framework regarding generating independent evaluation evidence to assess the early implementation experience of the 2013 WBG Strategy.
