Evaluation of Sustainable Development Agreements

Itad was contracted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to complete an evaluation of the process of Sustainable Development Agreements.

11/04/2001

The Sustainable Development Agreements (SDAs) were established between four countries: Benin, Bhutan, Costa Rica and The Netherlands, following the Rio summit.

The study was designed to meet a requirement of the Dutch Parliament to report on progress and evaluate the agreements, which are intended to create a relationship that is wider than normal aid programmes. The agreements proved to be innovative, involving political and operational elements and introducing the notion of reciprocity.
