Terminal Evaluation of the UNEP/GEF Project: Demonstrating Cost-effectiveness and Sustainability of Environmentally Sound and Locally Appropriate Alternatives to DDT for Malaria Vector Control in Africa
This report is the terminal evaluation of the UNEP-GEF project “Demonstrating Cost-effectiveness and Sustainability of Environmentally Sound and Locally Appropriate Alternatives to DDT for Malaria Vector Control in Africa”, implemented between 2009 and 2018.The project's overall development goal was to reduce DDT use and the elimination of DDT stockpiles through the strengthening of malaria vector control practices in Eritrea, Ethiopia and Madagascar. The overall project objective was to demonstrate cost-effective, environmentally sound, and locally appropriate alternatives to DDT use in malaria control, ensuring their sustainable application through strengthened national and local capacity. 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 WHO Regional Office for Africa and the GEF.
