    Terminal evaluation of the project “Integrated management of marine and coastal areas of high value for biodiversity in continental Ecuador”
    GCP/ECU/084/GFF GEF 4770
    2021
    Also available in:

    In order to safeguard the high biodiversity value in coastal and mangrove areas in Ecuador, this project, with support from GEF, sought to develop an integrated management approach for the use and conservation of coastal and marine areas of high biodiversity value, by establishing conservation areas, strengthening mangrove concessions and integrating biodiversity conservation in fisheries management within conservation areas. It also sought to improve and sustain the livelihood of coastal communities depending on near shore fisheries, in particular fishermen and women of red and brown shell crab in the Gulf of Guayaquil and estuary of Cayapas - Mataje. The project suffered from numerous changes in the political landscape and a challenging implementation architecture; nevertheless, it remains relevant and overall achieved its stated objectives. The evaluation found the need to strengthen the alternatives production side of interventions to the same level as those pertaining to environmental protection in Ecuador.

    Terminal evaluation of the project "Implementing the socio-ecosystem connectivity approach to conserve and sustainable use biodiversity in the Caribbean Region of Colombia"
    Project code: GCP/COL/041/GFF - GEF ID: 5288
    2021
    Also available in:

    The project “Implementing the socio-ecosystem approach to conserve and sustainable use biodiversity in the Caribbean Region of Colombia” was financed by the GEF, implemented, and executed by FAO. The results of the evaluation highlight the relevance of the project to reduce the degradation and fragmentation of the strategic ecosystems of the Caribbean Colombian area, increase and improve the provision of goods and services from agricultural and forestry production. It was also found a high effectiveness of the project in obtaining the expected results, exceeding in some cases, the established goals. Likewise, the processes and mechanisms implemented by the project for the involvement of relevant stakeholders generated a very high ownership of the project. Due to the successes achieved, the evaluation identified good practices and lessons learned that may be useful for the design of similar projects. Among the main areas for improvement that were identified, is to improve the design of goals related to the impact on policy instruments and the determination of co-financing by the project partners; the institutionalization of the Regional Strategy of Socioecosystemic Connectivities to ensure its replicability and the revision of the tool for monitoring the effectiveness in the management of the GEF.

    Terminal evaluation of the project "Strengthening of governance for the protection of biodiversity through the formulation and implementation of the National Strategy on Invasive Alien Species
    Project code: GCP/ARG/023/GFF - GEF ID: 4758
    2023
    Also available in:

    The project, implemented in Argentina between July 2015 and June 2022, had the objectives of developing a framework strengthened governance that allows the effective protection of biodiversity against the impacts of invasive alien species (IAS) and enhances the current and future socioeconomic benefits derived from the conservation and sustainable use of biological diversity. The evaluation estimates that as a result of the implementation of the project, Argentina is better prepared to face the challenge of IAS management and has made progress towards enhancing the socioeconomic benefits derived from the conservation and sustainable use of biological diversity by controlling IAS.
