Terminal Evaluation of the GEF-UNEP Project: Demonstration of Sustainable Alternatives to DDT and Strengthening of National Vector Control Capabilities In Middle East and North Africa.

UNEP Evaluation Office (2020)

This report is a terminal evaluation of a UN Environment-GEF project implemented between February 2009 and December 2015. The objective of the project was to reduce reliance on DDT during vector borne diseases outbreaks and minimize the potential to revert to DDT for the prevention and control of vector-borne diseases in all countries, through the use of sustainable, cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternative interventions. The evaluation sought to assess project performance (in terms of relevance, effectiveness and efficiency), and determine outcomes and impacts (actual and potential) stemming from the project, including their sustainability. The evaluation has two primary purposes: (i) to provide evidence of results to meet accountability requirements, and (ii) to promote learning, feedback, and knowledge sharing through results and lessons learned among UN Environment, the GEF, the Secretariat of the Stockholm Convention, WHO and the participating countries.
