Abstract:This bachelor thesis provides knowledge about the factors and stakeholders involved in the implementation and the effectiveness of development aid in the sector of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), using Lebanon as case study. The descriptive research question posed is: What are the factors influencing the implementation of development aid by sector- specific state actors in the sector of water, sanitation and hygiene in Lebanon between 1990 and 2017? Three sub-questions addressing relevant concepts have been formulated examining the factors supporting and hampering the implementation process, the stakeholders involved in the process and the effectiveness of aid implemented. The research method of a realistic literature review following the criteria of Pawson (2005) is used to conduct a qualitative data analysis of secondary data. Three programme theories addressing each of the three sub-questions have been constructed and refined by extracting data from pre-selected policy papers published by state actors. Due to an insufficient amount of data the central research question can only partially be answered. However, this research identified further relevant factors supporting the implementation, identified that other stakeholders are involved apart from the respective governments and that most papers address monitoring and evaluation. For future research it is recommended to look for a more comprehensive amount of data, in order to fully answer the research question.
