Policies & Guidelines
The GEF Monitoring and Evaluation Policy (2010) specifies that each GEF full-sized project will be evaluated at the end of implementation.

The GEF Monitoring and Evaluation Policy provides norms and standards for the GEF Secretariat and the GEF Independent Evaluation Office.
When a project is closing, the Implementing or Executing Agency conducts a terminal evaluation. The main purpose of such evaluations is to review the implementation process and achievement of results and draw lessons.
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 GEF Council approved the revised M&E Policy in November 2006.
