  • Publication date 10 Jul 2019

The IEU was asked by the GCF Board at its 21st meeting to undertake two evaluations: The Independent Assessment of the GCF's Environmental and Social Safeguards (ESS) and the evaluation of the GCF's Country Ownership Approach (COA).

The COA evaluation examines the extent to which the GCF has conceptualized and operationalized the concept of country ownership, as well as the extent to which country needs and priorities have been incorporated in both the design and implementation of the Fund’s policies and practices.

Meanwhile, the ESS evaluation examines the extent to which past and current safeguards, as well as the Environmental and Social Management System (ESMS), have been useful in preventing, mitigating and managing environmental and socially adverse impacts and risks for the Fund. It also delves into how to improve the environmental and social performance of the Fund and its portfolio over time.
In this context, the online survey aims to collect your views, opinions and perspectives about this topic.
All individual responses to this survey are confidential and will only be reviewed and made available to the evaluation team. This information will be triangulated with other sources of data we are gathering to build both evaluations.

Please see here for a link to the online survey.
The survey should take up to 10 minutes to complete.
Surveys must be submitted by August 15th.
