  • Evaluation type Portfolio
  • Status Completed in
    January 2022

The least developed countries (LDCs) are responsible for small additions to the overall GHGs stock globally but experience disproportionate impacts of its consequences.

The evaluation asks whether the GCF’s approach and investments have been effective in reducing the vulnerability of local communities and their local livelihoods to the effects of climate change, and whether these impacts are likely to be sustained.

The evaluation was delivered to the Board in January 2022.
