Cross-cutting Issue Environment
Impact Analysis The Vulnerability Reduction Assessment (VRA) was slightly revised to reflect gender issues and to enable the identification of solutions to inclusively address climate change impacts affecting men and women differently.
Effectiveness Ownership/Partnership Evaluation The project implementation partnership between MAFF, MWRM and MWA provided a coordinated, cross-ministry approach to addressing climate change adaptation, with a continuum between household water availability, irrigated farming practices and livelihoods diversification. Identifying the specific roles for each agency within a coordinated, well-communicated programme is a key lesson.
Rating 4/5
Policy Coherence/Harmonization Evaluation The close relationship that UNDP have with government, their established relationship in providing international expertise to climate change policy issues in the country and the many years of project experience in the environment sector makes them well suited to development and engagement in the NAPA FU Project.
Rating 4/5
Evaluation Framework Evaluation The terminal evaluation aimed for an evidence-based, transparent and participatory approach consistent with the GEF Monitoring and Evaluation Policy, the Guidelines for GEF Agencies in Conducting Terminal Evaluations (2008) and the Guidance for Conducting Terminal Evaluations of UNDP-supported, GEF-financed projects (2012). he evaluation focused on the evaluation criteria and questions presented in the Terms of Reference. It also endeavored to compare the pre-project baseline conditions to current conditions. An Evaluation Inception Report and a summary of the status of project outcomes and outputs were prepared during the initial phase of the evaluation.
Rating 4/5
Alignment/Composition of Finance Evaluation The project disbursed 46% of the annual budget in the first year and 91% in the second year, reflecting a slow start for the project. Minor accounting deficiencies were noted in audit reports and promptly corrected. The project budget of $2.59 M is higher than the original budget of $2.25 M, presumably due to additional funding from UNDP. About 88% of the budget was expended by August 2015.
Rating 4/5
Other Remarks Overall, the project has been effectively and efficiently implemented and provided some meaningful results in a very short term through an array of field interventions and awareness raising activities. Not all of the outputs led to expected outcomes but the important connections between water management and agricultural resilience to climate change have been demonstrated.
