Endline Assessment for the Enhancing Water Access and Systems Strengthening for Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (EWASSA) Project

Practical Action is an international development organization putting ingenious ideas to work so that people in poverty can change their world.

We help people find solutions to some of the world’s toughest problems. Challenges made worse by catastrophic climate change and persistent gender inequality.

We work with communities to develop ingenious, lasting and locally owned solutions for agriculture, water and waste management, climate resilience and clean energy.

And we share what works with others, so answers that start small can grow big.

We are committed to advancing gender equality and women’s empowerment through all our work.

At a minimum, we ensure that all our work is gender sensitive, seeking gender transformative approaches as our overall ambition and in accordance with context.

Practical Action has implemented the Enhancing Water Access and Systems Strengthening for Arid and Semi-arid lands (EWASSA) project for the last 3-years in Turkana County.

The project was implemented in two phases. Phase I was implemented from Dec 2019 to Dec 2021 and Phase II from Jan 2021 and will end in March 2o23.

The project was implemented in four sub counties (Turkana Central, South, East and Loima) in Turkana County.

The overall objective of this assessment is to gather and consolidate impact of the project interventions, document learnings from the project, capture gender equality perspectives and women’s empowerment impacts through use of gender-sensitive evaluation methodologies capturing how change processes are unfolding for women, for men and for excluded groups and to provide recommendations on optimizing evidence and impact from the project to inform scale up sustainably.
