Learning-Oriented Real-Time Impact Assessment (LORTA)

  • Evaluation type Thematic
  • Status On-going

The continuation of the Learning-Oriented Real-Time Impact Assessment (LORTA) program aims to build capacity and mechanisms for measuring causal impacts of GCF investments. This technical assistance program will help approved GCF projects build high quality and useful baseline data, support real-time learning on the likelihood of impacts and measure causal impact of GCF investments.
In 2018, eight projects were selected for strengthening impact measurement and tracking implementation fidelity. The eight projects focus on climate information services, REDD+ and adaptation. The first phase of this pilot on the “formative project evaluations” is concluding in 2018. An IEU report will present findings from these eight projects that are being informed by field missions and technical assistance for high-quality data collection.
In 2019, the IEU will support six additional projects that will be selected for their ownership and representativeness, among other criteria. A key report will be presented as part of the IEU’s quarterly report at B.22, and a report laying out baseline findings from all selected projects will be submitted to the Board at B.24.
