Terminal Evaluation of the GEF funded UN Environment – UNDP project: Adapting water resource management in the Comoros to expected climate change

UN Environment Evaluation Office (2017)

This report is a terminal evaluation of a UN Environment - UNDP - GEF project implemented between 2011 and 2016. The overarching goal of the project was defined in the project document as to adapt water resource management to climate change in the Comoros. The project’s global environmental objective was defined in the project document as “to reduce the risk of climate change on lives and livelihoods from impacts on water resources in the Comoros”. The main intended outcomes were the strengthening of institutions at national, regional and community level, the improvement of water supply and water quality for selected pilot communities to combat impacts of climate change, and increased awareness of adaptation good practice. 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, UNDP, the GEF and the executing partners in Comoros.
