GEF Results-Based Management (RBM): Agency Self-Evaluation and the GEF Portal

The Independent Evaluation Office (IEO) of the Global Environment Facility (GEF) regularly evaluates different aspects of the GEF results-based management (RBM). This report brings together evidence from two of these evaluations: (1) the Evaluation of GEF Agency Self-Evaluation Systems and (2) the Evaluation of the GEF Portal.

The Evaluation of GEF Agency Self-Evaluation Systems assesses the extent to which these systems meet GEF requirements and provide credible, quality, and timely information to support accountability and learning. Using a systems and design thinking process, it identifies bottlenecks and solutions.

The Evaluation of the GEF Portal assesses the extent to which the GEF Portal has met its objectives to provide a user-friendly online interface to submit, review, and approve project and program proposals and to store data and documents related to project approval, implementation, and results. It identifies areas where the GEF Portal has performed well and those where there are gaps in performance.
