Terminal Evaluation of the UN Environment Project: Capacity Strengthening and Technical Assistance for the Implementation of Stockholm Convention National Implementation Plans (NIPs) in African Least Developed Countries (LCDs) of the COMESA, SADC and ECOWAS Sub-regions.

UN Environment Evaluation Office (2018)

This report is a Terminal Evaluation of three UN Environment-GEF Projects designed and implemented between 2010 and 2017. The overall development goal of these Projects was to strengthen capacities for environmentally sound management of chemicals (SMOC) controlled under the Stockholm Convention (SC) in the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) and Small Island Developing States (SIDS) in the sub-regions. The evaluation 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 evaluation 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 UN Environment, the GEF and their executing partners – the WWF Regional Office for Africa based in Nairobi, the Basel and Stockholm Convention Regional Centre in Senegal (BSCRC-Senegal) and Green Cross Switzerland (GCCH), and the relevant agencies of the Project participating countries.
