Terminal Evaluation of the "EU-UNEP Africa Low Emissions Development Strategies Modelling, Planning and Implementation Project" (African LEDS, 2016-2019)

Evaluation Office of UNEP (2022-06)

This report covers the terminal evaluation of a UNEP-EU project implemented between April 2016 and October 2019. The project's overall objective was "To assist partner African countries in defining, building support, and launching implementation of inclusive, low emission, climate-resilient, and resource efficient socio-economic development pathways while also building local research, knowledge, expertise and capacity to develop and implement Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs)". The evaluation sought to assess project performance in terms of relevance, effectiveness (outcomes), impact, sustainability and efficiency. The evaluation has two primary purposes: i) to provide evidence of results to meet accountability requirements, and ii) to provide opportunity for learning, by sharing an understanding of results, challenges, and lessons learned, between UNEP, EU, Implementation Partners and lead partners in the countries. The evaluation identifies lessons and recommendations of operational relevance for future project formulation and implementation.
