Terminal Evaluation of the UN Environment project: Support to implementation of the chemicals and waste MEAs (Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm Conventions)

UN Environment Evaluation Office (2017)

This report is a terminal evaluation of a UN Environment project implemented between December 2014 and December 2016. The project was designed to respond to Parties requests for assistance in the implementation of their obligations under the chemicals and waste Multilateral Environment Agreements (MEAs), i.e. the Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm (BRS) Conventions and to assist the BRS Secretariat in fulfilling its mandate. Its main objective was to increase the capacities of the Parties to the BRS Conventions to meet their obligations by using the scientific and technical tools and services provided by the project, and assist the BRS Secretariat in fulfilling its mandate. 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 BRS Secretariat, the Stockholm Convention Regional Centre for Capacity-Building and the Transfer of Technology in Asia and the Pacific (SCRCAP) in partnership9 with China-ASEAN Environmental Cooperation Centre (CAEC).
