Terminal Evaluation of the UNEP-ADB-GEF Project: Pilot Asia-Pacific Climate Technology Network and Finance Center (AP-CTNFC)

UNEP Evaluation Office (2020-05)

This report is the terminal evaluation of the Global Environment Facility (GEF) project, “Pilot Asia-Pacific Climate Technology Network and Finance Centre” (AP-CTNFC), which was jointly implemented during 2013-2019 by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and Asian Development Bank (ADB). Initiated in the wake of the 2007 Poznan Strategic Programme on Technology Transfer (PSP) designed to help developing countries enhance action on climate change mitigation and adaptation, this pilot project was intended to assist developing countries in the Asia Pacific region to put in place the appropriate policies and measures to facilitate the transfer of environmentally-sound technologies (ESTs) through the establishment and strengthening of a network of national and regional centres, policy reform, demonstrations, and catalytic financing. This evaluation assessed this pilot project’s performance in terms of its relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, impact, and sustainability. The evaluation’s primary purposes were to (i) provide evidence of results to meet accountability requirements; and (ii) promote learning, feedback, and knowledge sharing through results and lessons learned for UNEP, ADB, GEF, and relevant organisations in the 17 countries that participated in the project.
