Knowledge sharing is an integral part of the Independent Evaluation Office’s mandate as it ensures feedback of evaluation results into decision-making process in the GEF at the policy, strategy, program, and project levels. IEO aims to make findings and lessons from evaluations accessible to target audiences in a user-friendly way.

IEO continues strengthening its approaches and methodologies to remain at the forefront of evaluation. IEO uses mixed methods, complex systems, and theory of change approaches to assess the delivery of environmental and socio-economic benefits. The Office mainstreams in its methodologies the dimensions of partnerships, stakeholder engagement, and gender. IEO partners with research institutions, NASA to include GIS data, remote sensing, and planetary level cloud computing in its evaluations.
