Abstract:The Dutch water sector is actively involved in a wide variety of international projects that involve a transfer of Dutch knowledge.The government financially supports some of these projects with the aim to (1) contribute to solving water-related problems, and (2) create economic opportunities for the Dutch water sector.This research evaluates to what extent Dutch-funded projects actually contribute to the achievement of these objectives.Moreover, it tries to explain what factors distinguishes an effective from a less effective project. For this, we developed an evaluation framework, which we applied to three Dutch-funded flood risk projects that were implemented in Romania.
