  • Evaluation type Thematic
  • Status Completed in
    October 2019

An independent assessment of the Fund’s success in ensuring country ownership will be conducted. Country ownership is a core principle for the GCF. The IEU examines the extent to which country needs and country ownership have been incorporated in both the design and implementation of the Fund’s policies and practices.

The review includes country engagement, review of key documents, on-the-ground verifications and an assessment of what is working, how and for whom, while identifying key bottlenecks in ensuring access and commitment to this overall guiding principle of country ownership.

The assessment recognizes that country ownership is an evolving and ongoing process and will make recommendations for improvements.
