Terminal Evaluation of the UN Environment Project: Ecosystem Based Adaptation for Mountain Ecosystems (Nepal, Peru and Uganda)

UN Environment Evaluation Office (2017)

This report is a terminal evaluation of a UN Environment project implemented between 2010 and 2016. The project's overall development goal was to strengthen the capacity of countries that are particularly vulnerable to climate change impacts, to build ecosystem resilience for promoting ecosystem based adaptation options and to reduce the vulnerability of communities, with particular emphasis on mountain ecosystems. 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, IUCN, the Government of Germany and the relevant agencies of the project participating countries.
