The IEO presents a comprehensive study of private sector engagement.

The purpose of this study is to assess the Global Environment Facility’s (GEF’s) private sector engagement activities and provide insights and lessons leading to recommendations to strengthen the GEF’s collaboration with the private sector in GEF-7.

The study takes a mixed-methods approach with evidence from private sector engagement portfolio analysis, terminal evaluations of completed projects, a demand-side survey with select private sector entities, benchmarking with comparator environmental finance providers, and interviews conducted with private sector and GEF stakeholders as well as desktop research.
