Final report on the Independent evaluation of the relevance and effectiveness of the Green Climate Fund's investments in the Least Developed Countries
This evaluation assesses whether the GCF’s approach and investments have been relevant and effective in reducing the vulnerability of local communities in LDCs and of their livelihoods to the effects of climate change, and whether these impacts are likely to be sustained. It examines how and to what extent the GCF’s approach, mechanisms and financial modalities respond to the conditions facing LDCs. Moreover, the evaluation assesses the key enabling conditions for the GCF to support a paradigm shift towards low emission and climate resilient development pathways in LDCs.
