The African Biomes Strategic Country Cluster Evaluation (SCCE) covers GEF activities in 23 countries situated in two Sub-Saharan African biomes: the Sahel and the Sudan-Guinea Savanna. Selection of these two biomes is based on the countries' comparable land-based environmental challenges.
This is the first stand-alone evaluation of the Global Environment Facility's (GEF's) support to mainstreaming biodiversity interventions.
Scaling up is not new to the GEF and in the last decade, all GEF focal areas have been shifting from site-level pilot projects towards projects or programs implemented at higher scales.
Multiple benefits generated through GEF support consist of two types: the global environmental benefits (GEBs) that contribute towards achieving the strategic priorities of multiple focal areas, and the local environmental and socioeconomic benefits that indirectly generate and sustain the GEBs.
As part of the Sixth Comprehensive Evaluation of the GEF (OPS6), the Independent Evaluation Office (IEO) has undertaken two studies in the Biodiversity Focal Area - a) an evaluation of the GEF funded projects on Access and benefit sharing (ABS) and the Nagoya Protocol (NP), and b) a study to asse
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 Impact Evaluation of the GEF Support to Protected Areas (PAs) and PA Systems was completed in October 2015. This joint impact evaluation was conducted by the Independent Evaluation Offices of the GEF and UNDP.
This report on "Biodiversity Indicators for Monitoring GEF Programme Implementation and Impacts" was prepared for the Global Environment Facility (GEF) by staff of the World Conservation Monitoring Centre (WCMC). The work was commissioned by the GEF Monitoring and Evaluation Team.
The objective of the Biodiversity Program Study is to provide the GEF Council, the GEF Secretariat and its Biodiversity Team, the GEF Biodiversity Task Force, and the general biodiversity community with an assessment of how the GEF Biodiversity Program is performing and recommendations on how to
