The synthesis evaluation report presents key findings from the evaluations of these five projects to provide evidence of results to meet accountability requirements, as well as presenting the key lessons learned stemming from the evaluation findings to promote learning, feedback, and knowledge sharing through results and lessons learned among UN Environment, the GEF and their executing partners and the relevant agencies of the projects’ participating countries.
