More than 10 years since the last climate change focal area study, the GEF IEO is looking at the relevance, results, and performance of GEF climate change support.

The purpose of this study is to provide insights and lessons for GEF-7 based on evidence from an analysis of the climate change portfolio, terminal evaluations of completed projects, mapping of convention guidance to the GEF-6 strategy and programming, interviews with stakeholders, and case studies. The main objectives of the study are to assess the relevance and comparative advantage, performance, results, and lessons learned through Global Environment Facility (GEF) support to the issues of climate change mitigation (CCM) and climate change adaptation.
