The main purpose of this study was to provide insight and lessons for GEF's climate change support moving forward, by assessing the relevance, results, effectiveness, and lessons learned through GEF support to the issues of climate change mitigation and adaptation.
This study seeks to provide insights and lessons on the Global Environment Facility (GEF) adaptation portfolio for the GEF-7 replenishment cycle.
The main purpose of the programmatic approaches evaluation was to assess whether and how GEF support delivered under the programmatic approaches modality has produced the expected results in terms of global environmental benefits while addressing the main drivers of global environmental change.
The Climate Change Mitigation Impact Evaluation undertaken by the GEF Independent Evaluation Office focuses on the impact of 18 completed GEF energy-related mitigation projects in four large emerging markets: China, India, Mexico, and the Russian Federation.
Housed at the GEF, the SCCF was established in 2001 to support climate change projects in all developing country parties to the UNFCCC through four funding windows: adaptation, technology transfer, sector-specific projects, and assistance with diversification of fuel-dependent economies.
The climate change program study evaluates performance and results, and how results were achieved.
From 1991 to 2000, the GEF approved eight projects designed to stimulate markets for energy-efficient products—lights, refrigerators, industrial boilers, and building chillers—in 12 developing and transitional countries.
