This is a report for the Royal Netherlands Embassy (RNE) in Colombia which has commissioned a review of the achievements and progress of the enfoque sectorial - sector-wide approach (SWAp) - relating to the environment in Colombia.
In August 2007 - soon after the agreement for the SWAp was entered into by the Government of Colombia and the Dutch Minister for Cooperation - an initial study was commissioned by the Policy Evaluation Department of the Dutch Directorate-General for International Cooperation (DGIS) which looked at the ‘characteristics, opportunities and risks’ of the Colombian SWAp, and made recommendations for taking the experience forward. After the first year of operation of the SWAp, an internal report of progress was submitted in June 2008 by the Vice-Ministry of the Environment to the RNE in Bogotá. Then, the report of June 2009 set out the findings of the mid-term evaluation of the achievements and progress of the SWAp to June 2009.
This 2010 review assesses the level of accomplishment of the SWAp in its first three years, from July 2007 to June 2010.
