GEvalNote 03: LORTA 2018
The multi-year Learning-Oriented Real-Time Impact Assessment (LORTA) programme keeps track of the impact of GCF investments. Its goal is to assist GCF projects measure their impact in lowering greenhouse gas emissions and enhancing resilience to climate change, and if so, by how much. LORTA’s assistance includes, among other things, building and clarifying theories of change, co-building real-time and longer term measurement systems and helping projects use quantitative and qualitative approaches to analysing data.
This 2018 4-page brief introduces decision makers to LORTA and its objectives. It also presents in simple terms the lessons learned from LORTA phase one, descriptions of its design workshop in Bangkok, examples of potential evaluation questions and information about LORTA country missions.
