Evaluation Office of UNEP (2023-01)

This report is a Validated Management-led Terminal Review of a UNEP project implemented between 2016 and 2022. The project's overall development goal was to improve mainstreaming of biodiversity into decision making process by establishing effective links between biodiversity data providers and policy making bodies. The review 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 review has 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, the GEF and the relevant agencies of the project participating countries.
