2013 – UNEP: Terminal Evaluation of the Second National Communications supported by UNEP
Okapi conducted the terminal evaluation of the performance of 15 countries in developing and delivering their National Communications to the UNFCCC. The evaluation was set against key performance criteria including effectiveness, efficiency, and relevance and performed an analysis of factors affecting the achievement of results. A review of the causal pathways from project ‘Outcomes to Impact’ was also performed for each country. The projects were funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) under the enabling activities window, and the evaluation was conducted under the supervision of the UNEP Office of Evaluation. The programme’s overall goal was “to provide an integrated package of flexible support to facilitate implementation of enabling activities” . Through this support, it aims “to assist countries in promoting integration of climate change policy into countries’ national development priorities, on the basis of national needs and priorities”.
