This independent review of the Water and Sanitation Program’s (WSP’s) Fragile and Conflict Affected States (FCAS) technical assistance (TA) program (P131964) covers the first 18 months of the FCAS TA program and preparatory work under WSP’s FY2011–15 Business Plan.

The review was led by two independent reviewers, with the active participation of a cross-section of WSP’s technical assistance clients and WSP’s partners, including the French Development Agency (AFD or Agence Française de Développement), African Development Bank (AfDB), Department for International Development (DFID), IRC, USAID–Sustainable Water and Sanitation in Africa (USAID-SUWASA), United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and WaterAid.

The review was explicitly structured as a participatory learning review, with views of clients and partners sought out and shared in transparent and open dialogue. The innovative format proved of great value as it enabled participants to share, in depth, lessons learned and to reassert the value of the WSP FCAS program as well as its positioning within the WSP as a whole.
