Evaluation of CIFOR’s Global Comparative Study on REDD+ in 8 countries
Efeca has just finalised their evaluation of CIFOR’s Global Comparative Study on achieving effective, efficient and equitable REDD+ results. The review covered Phase 3 (2016-2020) of the Norad funded activities part of the project, and included an assessment of the priority setting, research design, implementation and ongoing engagement process across eight priority countries, each with different focuses.
Our team consisted of an Efeca core team, plus REDD+ evaluation experts in Vietnam, Indonesia, Peru, Ethiopia, Brazil, Democratic Republic of Congo and Guyana. We looked at whether the project achieved its intended outcomes and what lessons were learned about policy engagement, whether the research was important, timely and well targeted to the context, and whether the recommendations of the GCS REDD+ mid‐term evaluation had been addressed.
In addition to carrying out an international survey across all the priority countries and beyond, the team conducted almost 70 stakeholder interviews in the local languages by local consultants. The surveys and interviews results were triangulated with a range of project documents and other research outputs.
