    The Global Environment Facility’s Capacity-building Initiative for Transparency (CBIT) supports developing countries to build institutional and technical capacities to meet the Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF) requirements. This final evaluation assessed the first cluster of the FAO CBIT projects – national projects in Cambodia, Mongolia and Papua New Guinea, and the global “Agriculture, forestry and other land use” (AFOLU) project. Overall, the evaluation rated the performance of the national CBIT projects under this evaluation as “satisfactory” and that of the Global CBIT-AFOLU project as “highly satisfactory”. Considering the ongoing portfolio of CBIT projects, the evaluation made recommendations for future CBIT projects. Such as: to consider mechanisms and strategies to institutionalize individual learnings and internalize knowledge and practices within and between the ETF-responsible institutions, and to devise knowledge management plans that go beyond communication and information sharing and encompass a detailed analysis of good practices, lessons and mechanisms for institutionalization of knowledge.
