Mid Term Evaluation of the UN Environment Project: Energy for Sustainable Development in Caribbean Buildings

UN Environment Evaluation Office (2018)

This report is a mid-term evaluation of a UN Environment-GEF project which began in 2013 and had an intended completion plan for 2017. The project's overall development goal was to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote energy efficient technologies and practices in appliances and buildings in five Caribbean countries (Antigua and Barbuda, Belize, Grenada, St Lucia and St Vincent and the Grenadines). In light of substantial delays in project implementation, reflected in low project expenditure, the evaluation sought to assess the reasons behind the project’s slow implementation and to assess its performance to-date. 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 that could be applied as the project moves forward and used by UN Environment, the Executing Agency - Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre, national ministry representatives from the project participating countries and the GEF.
