Evaluation and assessment
Okapi applies rigorous standards and clear methodologies in performing evaluations, whether when targeting specific projects or programmes. Ex-post project and programme evaluations focus on achievements of expected results and delivery as well as on the extraction of lessons learned for future programming. Our approach to evaluation is collaborative, participatory and focused on ensuring the elements of sustainability are in place. We also provide services in scientific and technical assessments including Environmental and Social Impact Assessments, application of safeguard policies for internationally funded projects, as well as services to the private sector on impact analysis.

The purpose of the evaluation was to provide lessons and experiences from implementation of the first climate change adaptation strategy supported by the GEF and thereby assist the GEF Council in making further decisions on adaptation. It included four areas of assessment. The SPA supported 26 projects in its portfolio amounting to $48.35 million financed by the GEF. The evaluation report was presented to the GEF Council meeting in November 2010. The full report is available here.
