The present study on the impact evaluation of the Greater Colombo Water Supply Project was undertaken by the Third World Centre for Water Management at the request of the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC). The objective of the evaluation was stipulated as follows in the terms of reference for this study:
“With regard to the three projects that make up the Greater Colombo Water Supply Project, an evaluation will be carried out through the examination of the projects benefits to and impacts on residents in target areas, and through analysis of conventional and participatory methods of project planning, implementation and sustainable management. The evaluation is also expected to contribute to the formulation of future Japan’s ODA loan projects by providing recommendations regarding sustainability that can be applied widely to other projects”.
