The Impact and Evaluation Unit (IEU) supports transformational change in Member and Partner countries. IEU achieves this by commissioning independent evaluations that help improve the design and implementation of GGGI programs and operations, strengthen transparency and accountability to GGGI Members and Partners and build a credible evidence base for green growth.
The IEU fulfils has two functions,
- Conducting thematic and country evaluations – The IEU undertakes these evaluations to assess the relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, impact, and sustainability of operations, and alignment with the priorities established within GGGI’s Strategy 2030 and its implementing Road Map.
- Mainstreaming GGGI’s impact agenda – The IEU advises operational teams in the design of program monitoring, evaluation, reporting, and improvement frameworks on a demand-driven basis, with a focus on ensuring coherent theories of change and credible results frameworks that are clear, measurable, and aligned to GGGI’s impact agenda.
The Evaluation Rules provide a governance and management framework for GGGI’s evaluation function. It describes the key principles, management arrangements, implementation approach and quality standards for evaluation. The Evaluation Rules are supplementary to GGGI’s Project Cycle Management Manual, specifically Part 5 on Results Reporting and Evaluation.
As per GGGI’s Evaluation Rules, the IEU’s annual workplans is reviewed by the Institute’s Management and Program Sub-Committee before being implemented.
