Assess the impacts of your efforts


Lessons learned

In order to plan for follow-up action, find out what impact your efforts have had and assess the success of the day.

Compile a summary of events

Review successes and challenges with the planning committee to understand what was accomplished, what needs immediate follow up and what lessons can be learned. Disseminate the summary widely among your planning committee partners and other groups. This information can be useful in planning for future events.

Prepare a brief questionnaire

Key questions to ask about your planning efforts include:

  • What elements contributed to your success?
  • What were the main obstacles to your success?
  • How many people did you reach?
  • What are the main follow-up actions?

Collect news paper clippings, TV spots, radio broadcast, etc.

For record keeping and evaluation of the success of the day, collect clippings and other media sources. This is also useful for future planning.

Thank the planning committee

Organize a “Thank you” event for members of the committee. This is a way to build on the success of World Water Day and to strengthen relations between the committee members. This can lay ground for the future collaboration.
