Review of Results-Based Management (RBM) in the GEF 2017
The approach paper for the Sixth Comprehensive Evaluation (OPS6) of the Global Environment Facility (GEF) specified results-based management (RBM) as one of the topics to be covered by the evaluation. This review of RBM has been undertaken within the framework of OPS6 and is an input to the valuation. The review assesses the extent to which the GEF RBM system captures key results of GEF activities and promotes adaptive management.
The review was conducted from October 2016 to April 2017. It involves a survey of relevant GEF documents and literature, an analysis of Project Management Information System (PMIS) and GEF Independent Evaluation Office data sets, and semi-structured interviews of key informants. Those interviewed include the GEF Secretariat's RBM team, program managers, and focal area coordinators; GEF partner Agency staff and consultants; the GEF Convention staff; and staff of select peer organizations.
