UNEP Evaluation Office (2020-05)

This report is the terminal evaluation of the UNEP-GEF project “Advancing the Nagoya Protocol in Countries of the Caribbean Region”, implemented between July 2015 and May 2019.The project's overall development goal was to support countries of the Caribbean to facilitate access to their genetic resources and benefit sharing in a fair and equitable way, in line with the Convention on Biological Diversity and the Nagoya Protocol. Its main objective was “seeking uptake of the Nagoya Protocol and implementation of key measures to make the protocol operational in Caribbean countries”. 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 had 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 UNEP, Executing Partner IUCN, and the GEF.
