Annual Performance Report (APR) 2004
This is the first GEF Annual Performance Report prepared by the GEF Evaluation Office. It represents the first step towards an independent assessment of the performance of the GEF's portfolio and focuses mainly on elapsed times in the preparation of projects, the quality of terminal evaluations submitted at the end of project implementation, and the quality of monitoring and evaluation systems within projects. This APR does not include a chapter on results but focuses more on process issues. It contains a series of recommendations about the GEF project approval process, improvements for UNDP and UNEP's terminal evaluation review processes, and improvements to project M&E systems.
