Mid-term evaluation of the UNEP – FAO GEF project: Land Degradation Assessment in Drylands (LADA)

UN Environment Evaluation Office (2009)

This report is a mid-term evaluation of a UNEP/FAO GEF project implemented between 2005 and 2009. The LADA project had two principal objectives: develop and implement strategies, methods and tools to assess, quantify and analyse the nature, extent, severity and impacts of land degradation (land degradation) on ecosystems, watersheds and river basins, and carbon storage in drylands at a range of spatial and temporal scales; and build national, regional and global assessment capacities to enable the design, planning and implementation of interventions to mitigate land degradation and establish sustainable land use and management practices. The objective of the evaluation was to assess operational aspects, such as project management and implementation of activities and also the level of progress towards the achievement of objectives.
