The GEF Independent Evaluation Office Ethical Guidelines provide guidance to its staff and consultants on ethical behavior to ensure that evaluations are free of bias, transparent, and considerate of stakeholder rights and interests.

The ethical guidelines contain specific provisions to prevent conflict of interest on three levels: institutional, staff, and consultants hired to contribute to evaluations. The guidelines will be periodically revised in the light of experience and comments received from external review.
