Title: A comparative evaluation of public-private and public-public partnerships for urban water services in ACP countries
Abstract
This study evaluates the comparative advantages of PPPs and PuPs in urban water services. Based on literature analysis and case studies, past performance of PPPs and PuPs is reviewed against several criteria. Lessons are then identified regarding the barriers and enablers which determine the success of partnerships, and the kind of support donors could usefully provide. The study concludes that while the main determinant of performance is not public or private management but policy, institutions, finance and regulation, there are notable differences between what PPPs and PuPs can offer. In the right circumstances the private sector can improve in efficiency and management, but at high costs. PuPs generally have lower costs and greater focus on capacity building and equity, and have the potential to support more holistic approaches to urban services and the water cycle. Partnerships with local actors can also improve services by allowing more flexible approaches to service provision to meet the needs of different households. The involvement of civil society and community groups in particular often helps to improve services for poor households. A key conclusion is that governments should have a choice of different partnership options and the ability to end failing partnerships. [European Parliament]

Title: Synthesis of Budget Support Evaluations : Analysis of the Findings, Conclusions and Recommendations of seven Country
Evaluations of Budget Support
Abstract
1. This Report has been prepared by Fiscus, UK for the Evaluation Unit of Europe Aid. It presents a synthesis of the seven evaluations of General and Sector Budget Support, undertaken in Tunisia, Mali, Zambia, Tanzania, South Africa, Mozambique and Morocco over 2010 -2014. These represent the full set of evaluations completed to date, following the revised methodological approach for evaluation of budget support, adopted by the OECD-DAC Network on development evaluation in 2012. The study builds on preliminary findings reported in 2011 in OECD-DAC’s Evaluation Insights, based on the Tunisia, Mali and Zambia cases.2.The principal goal has been to draw up a summary of the lessons from recent experience with budget support and to develop a corresponding set of recommendations. A central question addressed is how far Budget Support has contributed towards the achievement of targeted development results and how far it has had positive or negative unintended effects. General and Sectoral Budget Support operations have been compared and an analysis has been made of the relative contributions and roles of the different components of Budget Support.3. An additional objective has been to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the “3 step approach” to the evaluation of Budget Support, which has been adopted by the OECD-DAC Network on Development Evaluation and applied in each ofthese cases. The specific tools and evaluation techniques used by each evaluation team have been compared and assessed so as to develop recommendations on possible improvements to evaluation practice. The results of this assessment are presented in a separate volume. (Volume II.)[Author vide copyright]

Abstract
This Final Report presents the outcome of the “Thematic global evaluation of the Commission support to decentralisation processes”. The Evaluation was commissioned by the DG DEVCO Evaluation Unit and was implemented between January 2010 and February 2012.The purpose of the evaluation is to identify key relevant lessons and to provide recommendations to help ensure opportune and timely support to decentralisation processes.The evaluation covers EC aid delivery over the period 2000-2009 (within the context of the programmes managed by DG DEVCO).The evaluation aims to assess to what extent the EC assistance has been relevant, coherent, effective, efficient and sustainable in providing the expected impacts in the support of decentralisation processes, along with the EU added value. Moreover, it aims to analyse the coherence with the relevant EU policies and the partner governments' priorities and activities.In terms of geographical scope, the evaluation covers all regions where EC cooperation has been implemented ? including countries where the partnership between the government and the EU has been difficult ? but does not include regions and countries under the mandate of DG Enlargement, the OECD countries, and activities that fall under the responsibility of the EC Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection department.[Author vide copyright]

Abstract
The objective of this evaluation was to assess to what extent the European Commission sustained relevant and efficient development support at various levels of Employment and Social Inclusion (ESI) to eradicate poverty and achieve social cohesion in partner countries during the period 1999-2008.The evaluation focused primarily on employability and social inclusion in the labour market and not on the entire framework of European Commission interventions in employment and social inclusion, and involved, therefore, such analytical tools as : i) a study of all available relevant documentation (EC development policy at global and ESI level, EC overarching regional cooperation frameworks, regional and country strategies); ii) a worldwide survey involving EC officials in over one hundred EU Delegations in third countries; iii) a survey targeting high-ranking officers in partner countries; iv) a study of a sample of twenty countries; and v) field missions to six countries (Morocco, Jordan, Ukraine, South Africa, Jamaica and Vietnam).The findings of the evaluation were structured around the following seven areas of investigation: 1: EC-ESI policy definition and evolution – 2: Relevance to countries‘ specific contexts – 3: EC programming and implementation approaches – 4: Coordination, complementarity, and coherence –5: Labour demand and employment creation – 6: Employability – 7: Decent Work. The findings were then clarified and synthesised in general and specific Conclusions linked to concrete Recommendations for potential policy improvements in future EC actions in ESI-related areas.

Abstract
This evaluation aims to assess the extent to which the European Commission’s (EC) assistance has been relevant, efficient, effective and sustainable in producing the expected impacts in the education sector. Moreover, the evaluation also assesses co-ordination and complementarity with other donors and actors, coherence with the relevant EC policies and partner Governments’ priorities and activities, and with international legal commitments in education. The evaluation covers basic and secondary education, including the relevant sub-sectors, all regions where EC co-operation is implemented, and aid implementation over the period 2000-2007.[Author vide copyright]
