BLUE DEAL Mid-Term Review

The main purpose of the MtR is to assess the extent to which the Blue Deal programme and its partnerships have the potential to reach the Blue Deal’s ambition, and identify lessons learned and practical recommendations – including quick wins – to improve the programme in moving forward. The results of the MtR are expected to feed into the design and improve the next phases of the programme.

The Blue Deal is a joint international programme of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA), the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management (I&W) and the Dutch water authorities (DWA) that aims to contribute to clean, safe and sufficient water for 20 million people in 40 catchment areas by 2030. The programme started in 2018 and runs to the end of 2030 and is presently implemented through 6sixteen partnerships in fourteen countries. The Blue Deal partnerships aim to strengthen good water management through knowledge and expertise development, organisational strengthening, and cooperation with key stakeholders in the partnership’s countries.
