The GEF has been engaging with indigenous peoples since its inception and significant steps have been taken by the GEF to increase the engagement and participation of indigenous peoples in GEF activities over time. The purpose of this evaluation is to assess the GEF’s engagement activities with indigenous peoples and provide insights and lessons leading to recommendations to strengthen GEF collaborations.

The evaluation takes a mixed-methods approach with evidence from an analysis of the indigenous peoples project portfolio, terminal evaluations of completed projects, interviews conducted with indigenous peoples and GEF stakeholders, as well as desktop research.
