    The terminal evaluation serves a double purpose of (i) providing evidence on project performance (delivery of results) for accountability and transparency purposes, and (ii) promoting learning and knowledge sharing within FAO and GEF and among the global and national partners to strengthen the institutional and technical capacities of countries to meet the ETF requirements of the Paris Agreement. The evaluation used a combination of methods to gather information: document review, semi-structured interviews of pilot country representatives, other key stakeholders and CBIT-Forest Partners, and project management and Project Steering Committee members, as well as a brief survey targeted at pilot country partners. The evaluation used interviews and surveys to provide evidence on project performance, with particular emphasis on assessing the achievement of outcomes and impacts, value-added and benefits provided through participation in the CBIT-Forest project, sustainability, general value-added and lessons learned.

    Building Global Capacity to Increase Transparency in the Forest Sector - GCP/GLO/882/CBT 2022

    The 2015 Paris Agreement is a legally binding international treaty on climate change. Its goal is to limit global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius. Terrestrial carbon sequestration, which mostly takes place in forests, is critical to achieving this goal. To meet this ambitious target, countries have formulated individual climate commitments, referred to as nationally determined contributions (NDCs). Land use, and forests in particular, have been identified as a key component of the NDCs expected to provide an estimated 25 percent of emission reductions efforts up to 2030. However, to plan, implement and monitor these reductions, technical support is urgently needed to overcome forest data gaps, while at the same time improving the quality and transparency of forest related data and information. Against this background, the project was designed to strengthen institutional and technical capacities of developing countries through a coordinated process for global and national forest related data collection, analysis and dissemination, supporting countries to meet the Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF) of the Paris Agreement; focusing on seven pilot countries: Brazil, Côte d’Ivoire, Guatemala, Honduras, the Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Thailand and Uganda.
