Twenty years since the GEF Council incorporated nongrant instruments in the Strategy, the IEO undertakes a comprehensive study of the nongrant portfolio.

The purpose of this study is to assess the Global Environment Facility’s (GEF’s) nongrant instrument activities in order to provide insights and lessons for GEF-7. A mixed methods approach was used, based on evidence from a nongrant instrument portfolio analysis, review of terminal evaluations of completed projects, interviews with relevant stakeholders, and desktop research of pertinent project documents. The completed study will provide recommendations to enhance the design and use of nongrant instruments going forward.
